Millimeter-wave frequency bands and multi-antenna MIMO technologies are now widely explored to address the demand for increased capacity and reliability in emerging mobile communication systems, 5G and beyond. Initial testbed results have demonstrated the potential but also highlighted the practical challenges of such technologies. The combination of high frequency, small size, large signal bandwidth, and increased functionality is raising fundamental integration and multi-physics challenges that have to be addressed before the initial results can be translated into products. The objective of this workshop is to give a comprehensive overview of some of the most important research challenges in the design and analysis of highly integrated hardware for millimeter wave multi-antenna systems. Heat dissipation and related thermal effects has emerged as one of the most important and limiting factors in realization of millimeter wave 5G hardware. A major theme for this workshop will therefore be multi-physical problems that arise when thermal-, mechanical-, circuit-, and antenna-design considerations have to be jointly satisfied. The workshop presentations will illustrate how recent advances in analysis, simulation, and integration can help researchers in academia and industry to better understand how to optimize their designs under the constraints in future system applications. The workshop brings together views by leading industry, institute, and academic researchers. This will give the audience both perspectives of detailed technical solutions, as well as, an overview on the requirements that drive industrial system development.
