Title: OPTIMIZATION FOR ENERGY EFFICIENT MULTI-CHANNEL COMMUNICATION WITH SHARED LNA STRUCTURE
Abstract:
A method, a computer-readable medium, and an apparatus are disclosed for energy efficient multichannel communications. In one aspect, the apparatus may communicate using a plurality of channels working in parallel where the plurality of channels may share an LNA. Additionally, the apparatus may determine a set of parameters for the plurality of channels to maximize energy efficiency. The apparatus may therefore configure the plurality of channels based on the set of parameters. As such, the apparatus supports multichannel communications with a common LNA structure while providing energy optimization for the multichannel communications. Accordingly, multichannel communications can be provided using a shared LNA structure that reduces implementation cost and more efficiently utilizes available power resources.
