Abstract

In communication systems beam forming is a known method for improving the reception of an RF signal. Determining the direction and beam width however can be a computationally intensive process. This puts several constraints on the receiver's design. To meet latency requirements, a more expensive processor may be needed. Or the number of individual transmissions that the unit can handle simultaneously may be limited.
