Guest Editorial Antenna-in-Package, Antenna-on-Chip, Antenna-IC Interface: Joint Design and Cointegration
Inledande text i tidskrift, 2019
The twenty peer-reviewed letters in this special section examine the design and cointegration of antenna-in-package (AiP), antenna-on-chip (AoC), and antenna ICs (AIC). The letters are categorized in the four distinctive categories: 1) Fabrication technologies (four); 2) Measurement strategies; 3) Applications; and 4) New design and integration strategies. Fruition of major thrusts such as 5G/6G, high-resolution radar and imaging, autonomous driving, and space technology are highly intertwined with the advance of applied electromagnetics. Miniaturization and seamless integration of microwave components and radio systems can enable superior performance, form factor, and cost efficiencies leading to enhanced proliferation of such applications. Historically, radio frequency front ends, antennas, and microwave components have separately evolved using distinct fabrication and measurement technologies.
