SMARTWAVE: The new generation of phased array antennas

on 1 Dec 2020 in News | 0 comments

Just over two month ago we started our latest project on the development of phase-shifters for future generation phased array antenna applications. Let’s talk about SMARTWAVE. The EU funded project, initially proposed in the original Pathfinder( FET-Open) NANOPOLY project, which aims to reinvent, redesign and commercialize the mainelement of any beam steering system: the phase-shifter, a device that changes the phaseangle inthe transmission of an incoming signal. THE PROJECT In an age when everything is mobile and everything becomes wireless, the technological approachis to develop analog electronic components with higher frequencies, smaller and more complexwith beam steering capabilities. The SMARTWAVE project is based on a new phase shift mechanism that allows to enable phaseshift technology with: excellent performance characteristics higher speed reduced energy consumption All this by exploiting the reconfigurability potential of high frequency phase shifters. A project lasting 24 months in which we participate with great pride together with other European realities. The SMARTWAVE team, coordinated by Dr. Afshin Ziaei, explains the idea behind the project: In the modern world everything goes wireless and everyone goes mobile. To sustain this trend, higher frequency, smaller, more complex analogue electronics with beam steering capabilities are becoming ubiquitous. SMARTWAVE capitalizes on a newly identified technology combination to reinvent, design, fabricate and commercialize the main building block of any beam steering capable system, the phase shifter using a novel phase shifting mechanism based on reconfigurable metamaterials.

RF Microtech: a new H2020 project on NANO components

on 18 Apr 2019 in News |

NanoPoly – “Artificial permittivity and permeability engineering for future generation sub wavelength analogue integrated circuits and systems” – is the title of the latest RF Microtech project approved by the EU commission. NanoPoly aims at addressing in multiple ways the need for next generation analogue Rx/Tx modules raised by the advancement of mobile 5G, IoT and radar applications. To achieve such a goal, NANOPOLY builds novel technology, novel architecture and highly integrated Rx/Tx smart systems. The project is led by Thales SAS, France, and will be accomplished in collaboration with eight of the most advanced European industries, SMEs and research institutes involved in the field of nano-component and mmWave smart systems.   For more information, please visit the official project...

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.
