Increasingly, people around the world embrace the benefits provided by smart phones, smart cars, and smart homes. The key difference between smart phones and traditional mobile phones is the user-defined functionality that enables individuals to transform their phones into music players, movie theaters, or personal workstations. Smart cars with video sensors, lidar sensors, or even millimeter-wave (mm-wave) radar may be autonomously driven. When more and more user-defined functions/sensor capabilities are built into RF integrated circuits (RFICs), they are known as smart RFICs.
