Leti's RF Technologies in Front End Modules, Mm-wave connectivity and Backhauling are meeting 5G challenges
GRENOBLE, France – Feb 9th, 2021 – CEA-Leti today announced a visionary EU 6G research project for next-generation wireless connectivity. Called RISE-6G, it will design, prototype and test smart and energy-sustainable technological advances based on reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS) that will enable programmable control and shaping of the wireless propagation environment.
CEA-Leti's IWAT2020 award-winning research into miniaturized, frequency reconfigurable antennas for the IoT has already attracted several manufacturers.
GRENOBLE, France – June 11, 2020 – CEA-Leti today announced its researchers have broken the throughput world record of 5.1 Gbps in visible light communications (VLC) using a single GaN blue micro- light-emitting diode (LED). Their data transmission rate of 7.7 Gbps achieved with a 10 µm microLED marks another step toward commercialization and widespread use of LiFi communication.
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.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
