The wireless research arm of New York University recently announced plans to build a programmable testbed for prototyping millimeter-wave, or mm-Wave, antennas. The testbed will eventually become available to universities, government agencies, and companies in the early stages of developing mm-Wave products and standards.
The testbed will combine high-gain phased array antennas with a software-defined radio (SDR), in which computer programs replace hardware components like filters and amplifiers.
