In recent years, the art of using neural networks (NNs) for wireless-communication engineering has been gaining momentum. Although it has been used for a variety of purposes and in different ways, the basic purpose of applying neural networks is to change from the lengthy analysis and design cycles required to develop high-performance systems to very short product-development times. This article overviews the current state of research in this area. Different applications of neural-network techniques for wireless communication front ends are briefly reviewed, stressing the purpose and the way neural networks have been implemented, followed by a description of future avenues of research in this field.
