Current beamforming networks (BFNs) based on which next-generation wireless systems are designed to require multiple circuit layers for implementation, which increases costs. Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and the European Space Agency have now introduced a novel matrix topology for a BFN that reduces the number of layers BFNs typically need. This paves the way for cheaper and more efficient next-generation wireless systems.
