T11 Title: On the Design and Implementation of Open RAN Direct RF Sampling Radio Transceiver Architectures
Organizer: Sassan Ahmadi
Abstract: In this tutorial, we describe the challenges of the design and implementation of open RAN radio transceivers for 5G and beyond using state-of-the-art semiconductor technologies which allow programmability and computation combined with integrated RF sampling data converters, which allow design of large active antenna arrays with a scalable architecture.
