Energy-Efficient Hybrid Beamforming with Variable and Constant Phase Shifters

In this paper, the authors propose a novel partially connected hybrid beamforming (PC-HBF) architecture, which employs variable phase shifters (VPSs) and constant phase shifters (CPSs) for analog beamforming to harness the potential of these two types of phase shifters. In the proposed architecture,...
