Release of Deliverable D2.1 addendum: Waveform design for low-power ultra-high data rate systems

This technical document gives complementary results to deliverable D2.1, regarding the definition and test of innovative energy-efficient sub-THz  modulation schemes (index modulation in the filter domain). In the previous deliverable D2.1, we investigated the spatial Index Modulation (IM) domain and mainly Generalized Spatial Modulation (GSM)-based schemes to achieve low-power ultra-high wireless rates in sub-THz bands.…

A GDR-ISIS day on “Enabling technologies for (sub)-TeraHertz communications” – Virtual event on the 20th May 2021 supported by BRAVE

Sub-Terahertz (sub-THz) and Terahertz (THz) technologies, which are often referred as beyond-5G communication, are today attracting a great interest from both academia and industry. The transmission of information in the spectrum above 90GHz, up to 300GHz allows the use of huge bandwidths, from ones to tens of GHz. As the millimetre-wave communication systems will become…

PhD defense of Simon Bicaïs, Design of the Physical Layer for Future Sub-TeraHertz Communication Systems

Simon Bicaïs defended his PhD thesis on Thursday, November 12 at the CEA-Leti. Part of the work was founded by the ANR-Brave project. Slides are available here. To deploy high-rate wireless services, future communication networks envisage the use of wide frequency bands. Still, the usual frequency bands in the sub-6 GHz spectrum are extremely limited…

Release of Deliverable D1.1: Preliminary status on Regulation

BRAVE partners are proud to release their new deliverable D1.1 on the Spectrum regulation status. Apprehension of the spectrum regulations evolution to support new telecommunication usage in millimetre-wave and sub-THz frequency ranges requires a general understanding of the spectrum management framework at global, regional and national levels. Deliverable D1.1 provides an overview of the main regulatory…
