A new H2020 project for next generation wireless systems

on 22 Feb 2019 in News |

Starting from January 2019, RF Microtech is involved in a new H2020 project called NANOSMART – NANO components for electronic SMART wireless systems. Led by Thales SAS (France), the project will be conducted in collaboration with ten of the most advanced European Industries, SMEs and Research Institutes involved in the field of nano-component and smart system development. The final objective of NANOSMART project is to develop smart monolithic Tx/Rx front-ends capable of RF switching, power management and high efficiency at low cost and footprint. NANOSMART responds to these needs by developing a new technological platform based on CNT and 2D material electronics that are the two most promising technologies to replace silicon electronics in the future. RF Microtech is responsible of the “System Integration and Tests” Work Package and leads the development of one of the two demonstrators, namely a 24 GHz Tx/Rx smart module for IoT applications.

“NANO components for electronic SMART wireless systems” H2020 Project for the development of innovative NANO components for high end radar and mass market IoT applications (Project n° 825430  – H2020 ICT–07a–2018 – Electronic Smart Systems)   OBJECTIVES The objective of NANOSMART is to develop technology for future generation, smart monolithic Transmit / Receive front-end ICs capable of RF switching, power management, high efficiency, at a fraction of the footprint and cost of current solutions. NANOSMART addresses this need by developing a new technological platform based on CNT and 2D material electronics (the two most promising technologies to replace Silicon electronics in the future). NANOSMART develops unique concepts such as deep sub-wavelength antennae, CNT NEMS for RF switching, nano electromechanical reconfigurable filters and multiple FET technologies. Monolithic integration of all technologies mentioned above will provide a compact platform including new amplifier architecture, power management, RF switching and antennae on one monolithically integrated chip. Within the front-end IC, three sensor types (temperature, humidity and RF radiation built from novel technology) will also be integrated to provide smart, autonomous system reaction and thus improve accuracy, power efficiency and real-time system health monitoring and on-the-fly response to ambient conditions. The two demonstrators planned are aiming at high end radar and mass market IoT applications providing this level of smart functionality for the first time.   STATUS On-going   PARTNERS THALES SA, France (Coordinator) RF Microtech SRL, Italy Foundation for Research and Technology, Greece Institutul national de Cercetare-Dezvoltare pentru Microtehnologie, Romania Chalmers Tekniska Hoegskola AB, Sweden SHT Smart High-tech AB, Sweden Universita Politecnica delle Marche, Italy Regie Ecole Superieurie de Physique et de chimie industrielle, France University College Cork-National University of Ireland, Ireland Fundacio Institut Catala de Nanociencia I Nanotecnologia, Spain               Official Project...
