WNCG student Ian Roberts has been awarded the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship. The NSF program identifies researchers “anticipated to become knowledge experts who can contribute significantly to research, teaching, and innovations in science and engineering.”
mmWave MIMO Systems
Millimeter wave (mmWave) is a technology that can provide high bandwidth communication links in cellular systems. As mmWave uses larger bandwidths, the corresponding sampling rate of the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) scales up. Unfortunately, high speed, high resolution (e.g., 6-12 bits) ADCs are costly and power-hungry for portable devices. A possible solution is to live with ultra low resolution ADCs (1-3 bits), which reduces power consumption and cost.
