Executive Summary

One of the most promising solutions to achieve a gigabit class wireless link is to use Milli-Meter-Waves (MMW), especially at 60 GHz, for the carrier frequency. Aspects including global regulatory and standardization, justification of using 60 GHz bands, 60 GHz propagation and antennas and key system design issues were addressed in. Recently, the IEEE 802.15.3c, ECMA and Very High Throughput (VHT) groups were formed to normalize the future Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN) systems, which operate in the 60 GHz band. Hence, different architectures have been analyzed to develop new MMW communication systems for commercial applications. The choice of the architecture has a large impact on the system complexity and power consumption.
