NANO components for electronic SMART wireless systems

NANO components for electronic SMART wireless systems

Objective

In the modern world everything goes wireless and everyone goes mobile. To sustain this trend, higher frequency, smaller, more complex analogue electronics with beam steering capabilities are needed. The objective of NANOSMART is to develop technology for future generation, smart monolithic Transmit / Receive front-end ICs capable of RF switching, power management, high efficiency, at a fraction of the footprint and cost of current solutions. NANOSMART addresses this need by developing a new technological platform based on CNT and 2D material electronics (the two most promising technologies to replace Silicon electronics in the future). NANOSMART develops unique concepts already proven by the consortium such as deep sub-wavelength antennae, CNT NEMS for RF switching, nano electromechanical reconfigurable filters and multiple FET technologies. Monolithic integration of all technologies mentioned above will provide a compact platform including new amplifier architecture, power management, RF switching and antennae on one monolithically integrated chip. Within the front-end IC, three sensor types (Temperature humidity and RF radiation built from novel technology) will also be integrated to provide smart, autonomous system reaction and thus improve accuracy, power efficiency and real-time system health monitoring and on-the-fly response to ambient conditions. The two demonstrators planned are aiming at high end radar and mass market IoT applications providing this level of smart functionality for the first time. NANOSMART encompasses extensive design, modelling and advanced characterization techniques to provide the tools for fast industrial take-up of the developed technology. The project’s interdisciplinary consortium is made up of 10 partners from 7 countries with a wide geographical spread (France, Sweden, Ireland, Italy, Romania, Greece, and Spain) and includes a global industrial player, two SMEs and top EU academic and research institutions.
