ROAMI: 110 GHz Real-time Oscilloscope for Advancing Flemish Measurement Infrastructures

Project Details

Description

Communications is evolving towards the superfast 5G mobile internet, while research is already looking forward to the next generation ā€œ6Gā€ to further expand its capabilities. To make this possible, the operating frequency of communication hardware gets pushed towards ever higher frequencies. The exponentially increasing data consumption from e.g., social media and video streaming, is driving a similar evolution towards higher speed on the optical fiber infrastructure. The ongoing R&D in the wireless and optical fields triggers a strong demand for measurement equipment to cope with the higher frequency range and bandwidth. In particular, there is strong interest by Flemish research groups in a four-channel 110 GHz realtime oscilloscope. This instrument will support research along the complete research value chain from engineering physics, device modeling, integrated circuit design, to characterizing antennas, wireless and optical channels. The consortium groups researchers from all engineering faculties in Flanders (KU Leuven, UGent, and VUB) and IMEC
