A 64-Element 28-GHz Phased-Array Transceiver With 52-dBm EIRP and 8-12-Gb/s 5G Link at 300 Meters Without Any Calibration

A Record 12 Gb/s for 28-GHz 5G at 300 Meters

A 64-element, 28-GHz phased-array transceiver for 5G communications (based on 2x2 transmit/receive beamformer chips) results in 1.1 dB RMS amplitude and 8.9° phase error. The system requires no calibration because of a symmetric beamformer design and a PCB Wilkinson network. The phased array operates at a saturated EIRP of 52 dBm with 4-GHz 3-dB bandwidth, and a 300-m wireless link achieved record-setting data rates of 8-12 Gb/s over all scan angles.
