11 Hours of Video Instruction
This course covers the fundamental communications, circuits, antennas, and propagation issues surrounding emerging 60 GHz wireless LAN and cellular/backhaul applications. The course is developed and delivered by Prof. Theodore (Ted) Rappaport, a pioneering researcher and educator in millimeter wave wireless communications, wireless systems, and radio propagation, and closely follows the newest textbook, Millimeter Wave Wireless Communications, on the subject.
In this video training, Professor Rappaport starts by providing an overview to the basics in ultrawideband digital communications. He then introduces topics such as MmWave Propagation, ray tracing, Channel Models, and Antennas. He ends the first section with a discussion on RF and Analog Circuits and Systems for mmWave transceivers. In the second section, Professor Rappaport covers Ultrawideband Baseband circuits, Beamforming, Networking, and device discovery. He describes Modulation, Coding and Relay approaches for mmWave wireless. Finally, he ends the program with a discussion of current 60 GHz mmWave wireless LAN standards.
About the Instructor
Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport is the David Lee/Ernst Weber Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) and is a professor of computer science at New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. He is also a professor of radiology at the NYU School of Medicine.
Rappaport is the founding director of NYU WIRELESS, the world’s first academic research center to combine engineering, computer science, and medicine. Earlier, he founded two of the world’s largest academic wireless research centers: The Wireless Networking and
Communications Group (WNCG) at the University of Texas at Austin in 2002, and the Mobile and Portable Radio Research Group (MPRG), now known as Wireless@ at Virginia Tech, in
1990. Rappaport is a pioneer in radio wave propagation for cellular and personal communications, wireless communication system design, and broadband wireless communications circuits and systems at millimeter wave frequencies.
