Designing and implementing wireless networks on chips (WiNoCs) presents numerous engineering challenges, in the areas of computer architecture, multiple access, wireless propagation, physical layer communications processing, and device design and fabrication. In this article we provide a survey on WiNoC propagation and the issues involved with WiNoC channel modeling. We address both attenuation and dispersion, and illustrate the dramatic differences between the miniature WiNoC case and more familiar terrestrial wireless channels. Remaining channel modeling research is outlined.
