Conclusion To achieve the aggressive goals of 5G communications, a number of innovations are being pursued, including improvements in OTA efficiency with the expansion of MIMO and beam-steering technologies, both of which will be possible through the development of more complex antenna systems. The strain on design resources for hardware manufacturers will be compounded as more complex antennas must also address the wide range of deployment requirements called for by a densified network of urban-based microcells. This primer has presented some recent advances in phased-array antenna simulation and design capabilities within AWR software that will help design teams develop next-generation MIMO and beam- steering antennas for 5G. 5G Primer for MIMO/Phased-Array Antennas Cadence is a pivotal leader in electronic design and computational expertise, using its Intelligent System Design strategy to turn design concepts into reality.
