Development of mobile communication systems

The acoustoelectronic technology used in this project is developed in order to fabricate some fundamental components of the code time division multiple access (CTDMA) radio- interface, first of all the SAW convolver, then filters, delay lines and so on. The estimated advantages of this technology with respect to conventional electronics can be summarized as follows: easy and reproducible fabrication process, based on conventional photolithography; low cost; use of components having high performance in terms of resolution capability, size, weight, power consumption; use of materials with high acoustoelectronic properties, such as ferroelectric crystals (lithium niobate).
