mobile communications (6G) will enable entirely new application scenarios in
industry, medical technology and everyday life. This will be accompanied by new
and higher requirements for latency, the transmittable data rate, spatial
resolution, as well as data processing and energy management of the
communication systems, which cannot be met at present. A promising
technological solution is offered by the development of new radio frequencies
up to the terahertz (THz) range. This can enable extremely high data rates and
high-resolution sensing. For the realization of 6G, it is therefore important
to develop energy-efficient THz receivers and transmitters with controllable
directional characteristics, which have high signal quality and bandwidth.
Among other things, optoelectronic technologies open up promising approaches to
OBJECTIVES AND APPROACH
In the project
"Industrializable key technologies for energy-efficient Tbit transceivers
in 6G mobile radio systems - ESSENCE-6GM", solutions are being researched
to realize transmit and receive modules for the frequency range just below
terahertz radiation (sub-THz), which will be a critical component of future 6G
systems. Economic efficiency and environmental compatibility are the top
priorities for the technical implementation: the solutions must be
cost-effective to implement in future industrial series productions and
significantly more energy-efficient in operation compared to today's solutions.
The project specifically addresses the critical weak points of today's
transmitter and receiver systems: By introducing new concepts in analog and
digital conversion, circuitry and module integration, transmitter and receiver
units for sub-THz systems can be made more energy efficient and high
performance. At the end of the project, it is planned to demonstrate a
multi-antenna system capable of transmitting data rates of up to one terabit
per second beyond 10 meters in selected usage scenarios.
project is developing components that enable high-performance transmission in
the sub-THz range with high energy efficiency. Overall, the project is helping
to ensure that Germany plays a leading role in shaping 6G standards and that
the share of key components for 6G systems manufactured in Europe is increased.
This is an essential contribution to strengthening the technological
sovereignty of Germany and Europe.
