On the road to terahertz electronics

On the road to terahertz electronics
A team headed by the TUM physicists Alexander Holleitner and Reinhard Kienberger has succeeded for the first time in generating ultrashort electric pulses on a chip using metal antennas only a few nanometers in size, then running the signals a few millimeters above the surface and reading them in again a controlled manner. The technology enables the development of new, powerful terahertz components.

Design dilemma solved for the 5G-ready connected car

Design dilemma solved for the 5G-ready connected car
Can you imagine driving along with 18 antennas sticking out of your car? The latest predictions are saying that the modern connected car might need as many as 18 antennae to provide all relevant services. With that in mind, HARMAN has announced a 5G-ready, multiband conformal antenna for cars, which combines multiple antennae in one module that can be mounted below a vehicle’s body panels, allowing car makers new possibilities for vehicle design.

Compact low power CMOS radar features on-chip antennas

Compact low power CMOS radar features on-chip antennas
At the International Microwave Symposium in Philadelphia, US, Imec announced the first CMOS 140GHz radar-on-chip system with integrated antennas in standard 28nm technology. The achievement is an important step in the development of radar-based sensors for a myriad of smart intuitive applications, such as building security, remote health monitoring of car drivers, breathing and heart rate of patients, and gesture recognition for man-machine interaction.

Direct IoT connectivity demonstrated via GEO satellite

Direct IoT connectivity demonstrated via GEO satellite
The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has successfully demonstrated the direct transmission of sensor data from multiple transmitters via a geostationary satellite. For the test transmission, the institute employed portable, ground-based transmitters equipped with small, omnidirectional C-band antennas. Fraunhofer IIS developed this particular transmission method specifically for Internet of Things applications that use satellites (Satellite IoT).

Dual sector antennas reduce tower space while providing higher gain

Dual sector antennas reduce tower space while providing higher gain
KP Performance Antennas has announced a line of high-gain, dual-band sector antennas for use in wireless networks. KP’s line of dual sector antennas is made up of seven models, each consisting of two or more sector antennas inside a single, rugged radome. The single mounting point of these antennas reduces inches on the tower, halves the tower rental costs and lowers wind resistance.
