Advances In Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces Hardware Architectures: Beyond 5G/6G


This technical paper titled “Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces for Wireless Communications: Overview of Hardware Designs, Channel Models, and Estimation Techniques” is from researchers at IEEE.

The paper’s abstract states “we overview and taxonomize the latest advances in RIS [reconfigurable intelligent surfaces] hardware architectures as well as the most recent developments in the modeling of RIS unit elements and RIS-empowered wireless signal propagation. We also present a thorough overview of the channel estimation approaches for RIS-empowered communications systems, which constitute a prerequisite step for the optimized incorporation of RISs in future wireless networks. Finally, we discuss the relevance of the RIS technology in the latest wireless communication standards, and highlight the current and future standardization activities for the RIS technology and the consequent RIS-empowered wireless networking approaches.”
