Switch-Mode Analog Signal Processing for Integrated 5G Transceivers

Project Details


Bridging the rural digital divide
In recent decades, cultural and practical shifts to the use of computers and similar devices has made access to the internet a necessity for households and businesses. The internet is a significant source of information and can empower individuals and communities, improving their development and quality of life. Researchers have found, though, that there is a wide gap in broadband internet speed between urban and rural areas. This is due to the low economic benefits to telecom operators. The EU-funded SMArT project aims to bridge this gap. It will introduce a shift in design and develop innovative transceiver technologies for 5G and energy-efficient 10Gb/s home outdoor modems.

The project leading to this application has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860921.
