Metrology for advanced energy-saving technology in next-generation electronics applications - ADVENT

Electrosciences major partner in a new European Research Project - ADVENT

Improved power and material measurements will enable development of optimised, future-proof electronic devices

New nanoscale electronics for low power RF applications

The roll-out of 5th generation (5G) telecommunications across Europe by 2020, and the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) with 50 billion connected devices, will significantly increase energy demand due to the continuous power consumption of the electronic devices needed to deliver these technologies. Development of novel ultra-low power devices which support the sustainable adoption of these technologies requires traceable measurement techniques for the characterization of advanced materials and components, and for the generation of reliable and accurate data for efficient power management systems.

This project will provide such traceable measurements of power, power losses and emerging electronic materials properties, to aid the development of new materials and more efficient electronic components. The results will enable European industries to optimise devices and systems designed for 5G and IoT applications requiring ultra-low power, more energy efficient operation.
