Wireless communication has been growing dramatically over the last decades, both in numbers of subscribers as in the amount of information they are transmitting over the air. This evolution is expected to continue still for many years. Yet, energy consumption and also radiation are becoming main concerns.
Imec’s green radios aim to support the evolution towards higher user rates and wireless network capacity, while enabling drastic energy savings and much lower average radiation levels. Multi-mode solutions (building on reconfigurable platforms) featuring a 60GHz option are shown to be key, and can now rely on proven technology innovation.
