Title
(EN) BEAMFORMING OF HARMONICS
(FR) FORMATION DE FAISCEAUX D'HARMONIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus and methods related to beamforming of harmonics are provided herein. In certain implementations, a communication device for operating in a wireless network is provided. The communication device includes an antenna array including a plurality of antenna elements that generate a plurality of receive signals in response to a radio wave, a plurality of signal conditioning circuits operatively associated with the plurality of antenna elements and that condition the plurality of receive signals to provide beamforming of a receive beam, and a beam control circuit that controls the plurality of signal conditioning circuits to provide beam steering of the receive beam based on a direction of one or more harmonic lobes of the receive beam.

L'invention concerne un appareil et des procédés associés à la formation de faisceaux d'harmoniques. Selon certains modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne un dispositif de communication destiné à fonctionner dans un réseau sans fil. Le dispositif de communication comprend un réseau d'antennes comprenant une pluralité d'éléments d'antenne qui génèrent une pluralité de signaux de réception en réponse à une onde radio, une pluralité de circuits de traitement de signaux associés fonctionnellement à la pluralité d'éléments d'antenne et qui traitent la pluralité de signaux de réception pour fournir une formation de faisceaux d'un faisceau de réception, et un circuit de commande de faisceau qui commande la pluralité de circuits de traitement de signaux pour fournir une orientation de faisceau du faisceau de réception sur la base d'une direction d'un ou plusieurs lobes d'harmonique du faisceau de réception.
