Leti's RF Technologies in Front End Modules, Mm-wave connectivity and Backhauling are meeting 5G challenges
As countries around the world begin rolling out 5G wireless networks, CEA-Leti is looking ahead to sixth-generation technologies that will surpass the data-transfer capability of 5G.
The institute is running field trials at 26.7 GHz band with 400 MHz bandwidth, which may be the first carrier frequency in the millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum that will be released for 5G in France.
GRENOBLE, France – Dec. 19 2019 – LiFi, or visible-light communication, has significant advantages over WiFi, such as data-transmission speed and the data security it offers because light does not penetrate walls. But wide adoption is constrained primarily because of interference between devices using LiFi networks and LiFi's resulting poor performance in large areas.
Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, and Radiall, a global manufacturer of leading-edge interconnect solutions, announced a five-year common lab to design innovative antennas, radio frequency (RF) to meet infrastructure requirements of 5G networks and photonics components for harsh environments.
