Abstract

We study the performance of a prototype of a millimeter-wave transceiver with radio frequency (RF) beamforming capabilities. More specifically, the focus is on the architecture and software implementation of a smart-RF that allows self-beam-alignment. Simulation studies shows the expected performance in terms of probability of misalignment and coverage using different beam search strategies as well as realistic antenna beam patterns and phase-shifters quantization constraints.
