Driven by the demand for high-data-rate, millimeter wave technologies with broad bandwidth are being explored in high-speed wireless communications. These technologies include gigabit wireless personal area networks (WPAN), high-speed wireless local area networks (WLAN), and high-speed wireless metropolitan area networks (WMAN). As a result of this technological push, standard organizations are actively calling for specifications of millimeter wave applications in the above wireless systems.


Providing the guidance needed to help you navigate through these new technologies, Millimeter Wave Technology in Wireless PAN, LAN, and MAN covers the fundamental concepts, recent advances, and potential that these millimeter wave technologies will offer with respect to circuits design, system architecture, protocol development, and standardization activities.

The book presents essential challenges and solutions related to topics that include millimeter wave monolithic integrated circuit (MMIC), packaging technology of millimeter wave system and circuits, and millimeter wave channel models. With numerous figures, tables and references, this text allows speedy access to the fundamental problems, key challenges, open issues, future directions, and further readings on millimeter wave technologies in relation to WPAN, WLAN, and WMAN.
