Energy-efficient ICs for 6G and radars transceivers

PI: Atila Alvandpour (LiU), co-PI: Henrik Sjöland (LU)

With 6G the journey towards ever-higher carrier frequencies and bandwidths continues. For the first time in cellular systems, the carrier frequency will exceed 100 GHz and the bandwidth 10GHz. To achieve useful communication distance and radar range, devices and especially base-stations will use beamforming with very large antenna arrays. The goal of this project is research and development of a small sized wideband energy-efficient IC, including RF analog front-end and analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to be used as a building block in 6G equipment for up to Tbit/s communication also capable of high-resolution radar measurements.
