In this white paper, a comparison focused on the power efficiency of analog, digital, and hybrid beamforming architectures is presented. A detailed equation-based model for the power consumption of the three architectures was developed for a receive phased array. There are downsides of going the hybrid route, but those trade-offs are likely to be worth the power savings for many applications. Download the full white paper to learn more.
