I wonder if I could apply beam-forming technology for the virtual receiver array to get a better
result for raspiration monitoring application?
The TX beamforming is mainly trying to increase transmit power and SNR. The receive beamforming is majorly trying to improve the angle resolution during the angle of arrival estimation.
IN vital sign application, people are really close, so SNR should not be an issue. And the angle is not estimated, so I do not think beamforming will be useful.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

Thank you for this reply. However, I found a paper, which is titled "Vital Signs Monitoring of Multiple People using a FMCW Millimeter-Wave Sensor", discussed how to se 1443 to
enhence the vital signal monitoring for multiple people.
This paper was authored by TI people. I believe their reported results are correct.
I wonder if such technique could apply to one person case.
Is that possible that I could get a better breathing signal from a person located at a know angle to FMCE radar?
In reply to Ying-Ren Chien:
The paper you mentioning is doing RX beam-forming on the ADC data to focus on the person of interest. It would be helpful in scenarios where we want to reject signals that are in the same range bin other than the person of interest. For example, if in the same range bin, you have another object other than the people of interest. Then you can try the approach mentioned in the paper.
