Large-scale Millimeter-wave Arrays for the Internet of Everything

Gabe Buckmaster

The cost of existing electronically steerable antennas has limited their use to mainly military and very high-value commercial applications. This project aims to make electronically steerable arrays and their incredible potential available to applications with consumer-grade budgets using innovative architectures and integrated CMOS electronics. Applications that may benefit from low cost phased arrays include advanced radars for autonomous systems, satellite-based Internet services, and even wireless power delivery using spotlight-like RF beams. Current work focuses on building large scale electronically steerable millimeter-wave reflectarrays using passive CMOS ICs.
