Beamforming matlab code | Beamforming QAM matlab source code

This page of MATLAB source code covers Beamforming matlab code. The output plots and mathematical equations of Beamforming QAM modulation matlab code are mentioned. QAM modulation stands for Quadrature Amplitude Modulation.

Beamforming is the technique used to boost the vector signal before transmission with the help of multiple antenna array. It helps in increasing coverage of cell tower to reach farthest mobile subscribers. Following are the main types of beamforming techniques.
• Analog Beamforming
• Digital Beamforming
• Hybrid Beamforming
