Project YACARI

The network of the future – Beyond 5G mmWave: circuits, antennas and RIS.

Preview

One of the main developments in 5G is the introduction of new frequency bands corresponding to millimeter waves (mmWave) (20 to 52.6 GHz.). This spectrum offers great potential in terms of available bandwidth, provided that the fundamental technical challenges imposed by mmWave signal transmissions are met. Solutions must be found to compensate for the severe attenuation of the electromagnetic wave’s power, to reduce sensitivity to jamming and to drastically reduce the power consumption of radio-frequency transceivers.

The aim of the project is to propose innovative solutions at all levels, from antenna systems to signal processing, by integrating circuits on advanced mmWave technologies (20 to 90 GHz) in order to mature them and make them compatible with tomorrow’s technical and societal requirements. Particular attention will be paid to designing energy-optimized systems by reducing circuit power consumption, improving antenna radiation and pointing efficiency, and proposing efficient signal processing algorithms.
