Architecting More Than Moore – Wireless Plasticity for Heterogeneous Massive Computer Architectures

Project description

New on-chip wireless communication plane

Future wireless communication systems and computing platforms need to deliver much higher data rates, more flexibility, and a significantly higher energy efficiency than current systems. As heterogeneous processors are widely available, new platforms are required to leverage a huge amount of computing power. To ensure near-ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) efficiency without the cost, development time or limitations, the EU-funded WiPLASH project is developing an on-chip wireless communication plane to provide architectural plasticity, reconfigurability and adaptation for any application requirements without any loss of generality. Specifically, the project will design a miniaturised and tuneable graphene antenna prototype in the terahertz band. It will also co-integrate graphene RF components with submillimetre-wave transceivers and demonstrate low-power reconfigurable wireless chip-scale networks.
