gan-on-Silicon Efficient mm-wave euRopean systEm iNtegration plAtform


Internal and external IT communication infrastructure and project website

The external IT communication infrastructure constitutes a guideline for communication of the SERENA project to external target groups including conferences, marketing measures and communication channels. Furthermore this deliverable constitutes the launch of the internal SERENA communication infrastructure including the establishment of mailing lists or a subversion server, and the SERENA website.

Interface between the modules and the signal processing platform

This deliverable includes the hardware components of the interface and the documentation of the interface and the control software

Fabricated and tested module

This deliverable will consist of the fabricated hardware module and a documentation of the functional and reliability tests

Signal processing algorithms and specifications

This deliverable reports on the signal processing algorithms and specifications necessary to implement hybrid beamforming for mobile (5G) and fixed backhaul applications. It includes the theory underlying the algorithms, the algorithms specification and computational complexity analysis, and extensive performance simulations in selected scenarios of interest.

Updated plan and initial report on Exploitation, Dissemination & Communication activities

This report includes updates on the exploitation, dissemination and communication plans as well as initial reports on the executed activities. It furthermore includes a first view on the market, its opportunities and on the target audiences.

39 GHz Proof-of-concept Platform evaluation

Final test report containing the results and conclusions from evaluation and characterization of the 5G demonstrator

Project quality plan

The project quality plan (the project handbook) constitutes a set of project templates, explanations on the project management process, review process, quality checks, meeting organisation, which is communicated to all partners.

Data Management Plan (DMP)

The DMP will provide an analysis of the main elements of the data management policy that will be used by the applications with regard to all the datasets that will be generated by the project. The DMP is not a fixed document, but evolves (if necessary) during the lifespan of the project. According to the Guidelines on Data Management in Horizon 2020, the DMP should address data set reference and name, data set description, standards and metadata, data sharing and archiving and preservation (including storage and backup) on a dataset by dataset basis and should reflect the current status of reflection within the consortium about the data that will be produced.
