Anteral will show latest results on Reflector and Lens Antennas for industrial applications at “Micromachined Terahertz Systems – A New Heterogeneous Integration Platform Enabling the Commercialization of the THz Frequency Spectrum (M3TERA)” special session during the next APMC2018 in Kyoto (JAPAN) on Wednesday, 7th November. Our CEO Itziar Maestrojuán will be in charge of the talk. After the session Itziar will be happy to have a nice chat with all of you.
About the Special Session:
This special session reports on the results of the 2015-2018 European initiative “M3TERA”, a EUR 4.26 million project in the H2020 framework programme. M3TERA envisions the wide-spread usage of low-cost THz technology in our society, enabled by a micromachined heterogeneous integration platform. This THz-system concept provides an unprecedented way to highly-integrated, volume-manufactuable, cost- and energy-efficient, reconfigurable millimeter-wave and submillimeter-wave systems, with the potential to finally enable the large-scale commercialization of the heavily sought-after frequency spectrum between 100 GHz and 1 THz. The primary demonstrator of this project is a highly-miniaturized point-to-point communication links using the 129-134 and 141-148.5 GHz bands, and comprises a micromachined- waveguide platform including a micromachined low-loss diplexer, with broadband SiGe Rx and Tx active circuits which are heterogeneously integrated directly into the waveguides, a horn-antenna feeding system with a micromachined-waveguide interface, and a dielectric-lens antenna with an overall gain of 42 dBi. The secondary demonstrator is a 122 GHz ISM-band radar system for medical applications, primarily vital-sign detection (both heard-beat and breathing monitoring successfully demonstrated). The project partners are Technikon (Austria), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), Ericsson (Sweden), Infineon (Austria), CSEM (Switzerland), Anteral (Spain).
