Top 6G Content on everything RF in 2021

6G is the next generation of telecommunication which will be the successor to 5G. Although 5G deployment around the world is still in its initial phase, research on 6G has started taking place. 6G is being developed using a host of technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Extended Reality (XR), Automation, Robotics, and many others. While 5G was designed to achieve peak speeds of 20 Gbps and utilize frequencies up to 100 GHz, 6G is expected to achieve data rates of up to 1000 Gbps and utilize frequencies up to 3 THz. Latency is also expected to be improved massively with air latency targeted to be around 100 μs, end-to-end (E2E) latency of around 1 ms which would result in user experience latency of less than 10 ms. In this article, everything RF has compiled a list of trending 6G articles in 2021.

Metamaterials to Become a Multibillion-Dollar Business that is Essential for 6G Communications

Metamaterials are structures with repetitive patterning controlling radiation and other inputs in a previously impossible fashion. They provide lower cost, weight, and size and better performance and life. Active components like diodes and transistors can be put in or behind each repeated pattern for greater virtuosity such as planned beam boosting, steering and focusing to your phone, and even powering it as you use it. 6G communications in 2030 need those metasurfaces over buildings and inside walls.

Whitepaper by Samsung on "6G - The Next Hyper-Connected Experience for All"

Following the commercialization of 5G technologies, both academia and industry are initiating research activities to shape the next-generation communication system, namely 6G. Considering the general trend of successive generations of communication systems introducing new services with more stringent requirements, it is reasonable to expect 6G to satisfy unprecedented requirements and expectations that 5G cannot meet. Samsung expects that 6G will provide the ultimate experience for all through hyper-connectivity involving humans and everything. In this white paper, Samsung aims to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of various aspects related to 6G. Read more

Samsung Demonstrates THz Wireless Communication Prototype for Next-Gen 6G Applications

Samsung Demonstrated THz Wireless Communication Prototype for Next-Gen 6G Applications Samsung Electronics demonstrated a 6G Terahertz (THz) wireless communication prototype in collaboration with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). At the workshop on Terahertz communications at the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC 2021), researchers from Samsung Research and the University of California introduced the potential impact that THz could have on next-generation 6G technology, demonstrating an end-to-end 140 GHz wireless link using a fully digital beamforming solution.

Whitepaper on "140 GHz Antenna Array for 6G Wireless Communication"

This whitepaper demonstrates the performance of an antenna array for 140 GHz wireless communication purposes, such as for use in a 6G application. The base element design consists of a TE340-mode substrate-integrated cavity (SIC) excited 2x2 slot antenna subarray in low-temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC). The base elements are combined to make an 8x8 array with a wide bandwidth from 130 to 145 GHz, a peak gain of 20.5 dBi, stable radiation patterns over the frequency range, efficiency around 60%, small size, and simplified construction.

GF Working with High Profile Universities on 6G Technology

GF offers a number of platforms and solutions in the most demanding communications applications, but its full potential is yet to be harnessed. They have the GF 22FDX platform, the 22FDX+ solution, and families of RF-SOI and SiGe (silicon germanium) solutions. All these solutions represent a compelling pathway to 6G, the next generation of wireless communications technologies, anticipated to make its debut toward the end of this decade. Read more

6G: What and When to Expect

In today’s world, telecommunications has become an integral part of our lives. There is a constant effort to improve the infrastructure and provide better data rates, latency, and reliability. We have witnessed this with the introduction of 3G and 4G over the past decade along with the latest technology in town – 5G. Although 5G deployment across the globe is still in its initial phase, some institutions have already started researching on the next best thing – the next generation of telecommunication – 6G.

Whitepaper on "Key Drivers and Research Challenges for 6G Ubiquitous WirelessIntelligence"

As fifth-generation (5G) research is maturing towards a global standard, the research community must focus on the development of beyond-5G solutions and the 2030 era, i.e. 6G. It is not clear yet what 6G will entail. More specifically, the way in which data is collected, processed, transmitted, and consumed within the wireless network will be a key driver for 6G.

Graphene to Play an Integral Role in 6G Technology

6G will initially launch at a few hundred GHz where several diode and transistor technologies are available in the laboratory but things get tough when second-generation 6G operates at around 1 THz to get the ultimate response time, data capacity, data transfer, and other promised advances. Fit-and-forget graphene supercapacitors will often replace batteries as 6G devices need less power. These supercapacitors excel in energy and power density leveraging graphene's excellent conductivity, huge area density, and compatibility with best-performing new electrolytes. Pseudocapacitors promise even more. Most of their research involves graphene. Read more
