Boost to 'green' radio research

Monday, 25 May, 2009


Samsung Electronics has signed a memorandum of understanding with IMEC in Europe to lay down its intent to collaborate on technologies for green radios.

The research collaboration topics will include cognitive reconfigurable radio baseband and millimetre-wave wireless communications technologies.

IMEC is pushing its research one step further towards cognitive radios (ICs with a radio that adapts itself to the changing environment, not only to the communication standard, but also to the available communication frequencies and conditions such as indoor/outdoor, signal strength, movement). 

The organisation is working on the control algorithms that take into account these changing environment parameters and user needs. As another cornerstone of its research into wireless communication, IMEC develops radio ICs for the wireless communication of massive data streams, for example for uncompressed high-definition television streams.

Such streams require a high throughput of gigabits per second. A suitable bandwidth for that communication is available around 60 GHz. IMEC works on cost-effective, low-power 60 GHz radio ICs in standard CMOS.

Researchers from Samsung will closely collaborate with IMEC’s research team to build up fundamental understanding and develop solutions for the future wireless terminals supporting multi-standards.
