LG Electronics researchers have succeeded tested the next step in wireless transmission technology, sending data over a distance of 100 meters with 6G terahertz (THz) signals. To do this, the team collaborated with researchers from Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and posted details on their company’s news page for everyone to read.
As 6G THz has a short range and experiences power loss during transmission, the evolution of 6G wireless has encountered many challenges. A major obstacle is that a stable signal at ultra wideband frequencies cannot be obtained without an amplifier. The recent success of the test is due to LG’s partnership with Fraunhofer HHI and IAF for the development of this crucial device to power transmissions over longer distances.
LG power amplifier can generate stable signal output up to 15dBm in the frequency range 155-175GHz. This new technology from LG also offers users adaptive beamforming, which measures changes in channel or receiver position with high gain antenna switching that combines signals from multiple amplifiers to transmit them specifically for different antennas.
5G networks are slowly making their way around the world, but engineers at several telecom companies have been working hard on next-generation 6G communications technology. The next generation of wireless technology is expected to deliver bandwidth up to 50 times faster than current 5G and reduce latency by 10%, making conversations more natural. The new standard also promises improved accuracy, which could lead to a wave of advancements in the Internet of Everything industry with devices intended for the home and office.
According to Dr IP Park, president and technical director of LG Electronics, it is hoped that this test will lead to a successful terahertz radio communication spectrum in the next 6G era.
