To meet the needs of next-generation high-data-rate applications, 60 GHz wireless networks must deliver Gb/s data rates and reliability at a low cost. In this article, we surveyed several ongoing challenges, including the design of cost-efficient and low-loss on-chip and in-package antennas and antenna arrays, the characterization of CMOS processes at millimeter-wave frequencies, the discovery of efficient modulation techniques that are suitable for the unique hardware impairments and frequency selective channel characteristics at millimeter-wave frequencies, and the creation of MAC protocols that more effectively coordinate 60 GHz networks with directional antennas. Solving these problems not only provides for wireless video streaming and interconnect replacement, but also moves printed and magnetic media such as books and hard drives to a lower cost, higher reliability semiconductor form factor with wireless connectivity between and within devices.
