Engineers develop ‘beyond 5G’ wireless transceiver for 100GHz Data Transmission


A new wireless transceiver invented by electrical
engineers at the University of California, Irvine boosts radio frequencies into 100-gigahertz
territory, quadruple the speed of the upcoming 5G, or fifth-generation, wireless communications
standard. Labeled an “end-to-end transmitter-receiver”,
the 4.4-millimeter-square silicon chip is capable of processing digital signals significantly
faster and more energy-efficiently because of its unique digital-analog architecture. The researchers call their new chip as ‘beyond
5G’. Academic researchers and communications circuit
engineers have long wanted to know if wireless systems are capable of the high performance
and speeds of fiber-optic networks. The Federal Communications Commission recently
opened up new frequency bands above 100 gigahertz. This new transceiver is the first to provide
end-to-end capabilities in this part of the spectrum. Having transmitters and receivers that can
handle such high-frequency data communications is going to be vital in ushering in a new
wireless era dominated by the “internet of things,” autonomous vehicles, and vastly
expanded broadband for streaming of high-definition video content and more. This innovation eliminates the need for miles
of fiber-optic cables in data centers, so data farm operators can do ultra-fast wireless
transfer and save considerable money on hardware, cooling and power.

  1. The World is in a Rush to Get to HELL !
    Thanks for Informing us my brother God Bless You in Jesus Powerful Name

  2. I read that 5th generation is going to indroduce new bands R1 and R2 (up to 300 GHZ) so this is not beyond 5G. It is exactly what was planned from the beginning..
