Service: mmWave Array Management

This service is used to manage various (IBM PAAM, Sivers 60 GHz and Itnerdigital MHU) mmWave arrays.

Array parameters:

  • Device Name
  • Number of antenna elements
  • TX/RX
  • Polarization
  • Number of ICs

Connect

Connect to the array.

Examples

Please note that, if you see a long delay in curl command execution, chances are you forgot to turn the array on

In the returned status messages, "duration" attribute is the operation/step duration time in seconds.

Single command/static array operation
omf tell -a on -t rfdev4-in1.sb1.cosmos-lab.org
curl "http://am1.orbit-lab.org:5054/array_mgmt/configure?dev_name=rfdev4-in1.sb1.cosmos-lab.org\&theta=16"

This will set the antenna array in corner 1 with all 4 ICs each with 1 element and vertically polarized in TX mode with phi angle at (default) 10 degrees and theta angle at 16 degrees

Resetting the array and turning it off
curl "http://am1.orbit-lab.org:5054/array_mgmt/cleanup?dev_name=rfdev4-in2.sb1.cosmos-lab.org"
omf tell -a offh -t rfdev4-in2.sb1.cosmos-lab.org
Dynamic array management
omf tell -a on -t rfdev4-in1.sb1.cosmos-lab.org
curl "http://am1.orbit-lab.org:5054/array_mgmt/connect?dev_name=rfdev4-in1.sb1.cosmos-lab.org"
