Practical Approaches to Industrializing Near-THz Communication Systems

In the past few years we have seen the proliferation of mm-wave communication radios due to the global effort to make ultra-high capacity 5G a reality. Such systems benefit not only from RFIC innovations, but also from packaging, material engineering and co-design of various elements to produce scalable and manufacturable products. Near-THz is poised to offer even higher peak capacity for a new generation of 6G wireless networks. This workshop focuses on the path to make near-THz systems manufacturable at scale and at a price-point suitable for mass deployment. This workshop will present various RFICs, packaging and interposer technology operating at D-Band (110GHz - 170GHz) and capable of achieving tens of gigabit per second at high spectral efficiency.
