CMOS-Compatible, On-Chip, Compact And Wideband Nanoacoustic Pass-Band Filters For 5G And 6G


A technical paper titled “Compact and wideband nanoacoustic pass-band filters for future 5G and 6G cellular radios” was published by researchers at Northeastern University. Abstract: "Over recent years, the surge in mobile communication has deepened global connectivity. With escalating demands for faster data rates, the push for higher carrier frequencies intensifies. The 7–20 GHz ran... » read more

Densification Of RF Designs


It’s challenging enough to deal with wireless signals at the 5G and 6G frequencies. But with increased density in chips crammed into smaller packages, higher power, beam forming, and MIMO, design requirements are very different than in the past. Simple parasitic extraction no longer is sufficient. Daren McClearnon, product manager for RF and microwave simulation at Keysight, talks about the n... » read more

RISC-V Wants All Your Cores


RISC-V is no longer content to disrupt the CPU industry. It is waging war against every type of processor integrated into an SoC or advanced package, an ambitious plan that will face stiff competition from entrenched players with deep-pocketed R&D operations and their well-constructed ecosystems. When Calista Redmond, CEO for RISC-V International, said at last year's summit that RISC-V w... » read more

Wireless Technology Insights: Navigating The Evolution From 5G To 6G


As 5G evolution advances, developments like the open radio access network (O-RAN) ecosystem, non-terrestrial network (NTN) infrastructure, and 5G reduced capability (RedCap) devices continue to gain momentum. Though 5G implementation is still underway, the wireless communication industry is already preparing for next-generation 6G wireless technology. With so much development happeni... » read more

AI Testing AI: The Future Of 6G Test


The impending arrival of 6G technology promises to revolutionize the way we connect and communicate. With expected data rates of up to 100 times faster than 5G, 6G is poised to enable unprecedented applications, from augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to real-time remote surgery and autonomous vehicles with ubiquitous connectivity. A significant facet of 6G's potential lies in the ... » read more

Exploring The 6G Spectrum Landscape


In each generation of cellular communications, new spectrum has been key to delivering more services, more capacity, and higher data throughput to end users. 5G benefited from large contiguous bandwidths of millimeter-wave (mmWave) spectrum, known as frequency range 2 (FR2). And 5G benefited from the reallocation and unlocking of midband spectrum (3.4 to 4.9 GHz) with its more favorable propaga... » read more

Using Generative AI To Connect Lab To Fab Test


Executive Insight: Thomas Benjamin, CTO at National Instruments, sat down with Semiconductor Engineering to discuss a new way of looking at test, using data as a starting point and generative AI as a bridge between different capabilities. SE: What are the big changes you're seeing and how is that affecting movement of critical data from the lab to the fab? Benjamin: If you walk into any m... » read more

Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Hyundai, Samsung Catalyst Fund, and others invested a combined $100 million in Canada-based Tenstorrent to accelerate the design and development of AI chiplets and machine-learning software and allow the integration of AI into future Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis vehicles, plus other future mobilities such as robotics and advanced air mobility (AAM). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administr... » read more

Multiple Hurdles In The Race To 6G


The rollout of 6G will open the door to significant changes and possibilities, but whether this technology lives up to the hype will require massive collaborative efforts, huge investments in infrastructure, and solving some problems for which there are no precedents. Multiple companies are already working on 6G technology, aiming for a maximum download speed of one terabit per second (Tb/s)... » read more

Solving 5G And 6G Challenges With Artificial Intelligence


Wireless networks are inherently complex, generate massive amounts of data, and have grown in complexity with each new generation of technology. This combination of large data sets and complexity makes wireless networks an ideal candidate for AI. People are receiving first-hand experiences of the power and potential of deep neural networks and machine learning (ML) as the technology begins t... » read more
