“Metamaterial based, radio frequency and millimetre wave phase shifters for future generation phased array antenna applications“ H2020 EIC  FETPROACT project to start a dedicated pilot line of innovative transceiver RF-power modules for mass applications. (Project n° 869817  – H2020-EIC- FTI-2018-2020)   OBJECTIVES 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. A novel phase shifting mechanism based on reconfigurable metamaterials promises to enable phase shifting technology with excellent performance characteristics, increased speed and reduced power consumption. SMARTWAVE technology is easily implemented in existing semiconductor fabrication lines and is inherently compatible with both III-V as well as Si and SiGe fabrication process. This ensures easy adoption of the novel idea into existing markets. To prove this, SMARTWAVE aims at demonstrating the phase shifting prototype in both technological platforms building a III-V based, K-band version to be included in a demonstrator phase array antenna for Satcomm and / or Radar applications as well as an advanced radar chipset fabricated in SiGe BiCMOS technology operating at 120GHz..   STATUS On-going   PARTNERS THALES SA, France –  COORDINATOR https://www.thalesgroup.com/fr/global/innovation/recherche-technologie   RF microtech s.r.l.

A new real time indoor TRACKing system for Industry 4.0

on 3 Sep 2020 in News |

On 3st September 2020 officially starts the latest RF Microtech project called HALLTRACK, HAngar reaL time TRACKing & tracing system, for the development of a totally innovative localization and tracking system for indoor and outdoor applications. The system will be used to monitor in real time the position of forklift and carriages used for the maintenance activities in large areas like airport hangars and industrial warehouses. The proposed system is based on a FMCW radar and tag system and presents several advantages with respect to commercial ones, such as high accuracy and range of detection, low complexity and costs, very long battery tag duration, up to several years. The project, supported by the Competence Center CIM4.0 (Competence Industry Manufacturing, 4.0) in the framework of the PRIA_I4.0 program, will be carried out in synergy with the company Blue System (Perugia), the Information technology department of Università la Sapienza (Rome), CPU I TEC (Rome) and the consortium CIM4.0...
