Democratizing 5G by creating more affordable and energy-efficient components
The 5th generation network, commonly known as 5G, is an extremely popular subject. While it promises to open the doors to incredible advances in wireless systems, there are a number of technological obstacles that must be overcome before it can be made accessible to everyone, including the high cost of use and excessive energy consumption of 5G-compatible integrated circuits. Professor Frédéric Nabki of the Systems Engineering Department at ÉTS may have the solution! A wireless chip equipped with characteristics that allow devices to adapt to 5G networks. Professor Nabki will present an overview of the research that he has conducted in this area for SPARK Microsystems, the start-up company that he co-founded with a colleague. This presentation is scheduled for 10:40 a.m. on Thursday, May 30.
