Japanese researchers have created a wireless transmitter (wireless transmitter) which is capable of producing up to 100 Gbps data rates. The transmitter is running at a frequency of 275 GHz-305 GHz.
The research team consists of Hiroshima University, Panasonic, and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology.
They develop the capacity of Tera Hertz transmitter capable of sending a signal transmission with a data rate per channel of more than 10 Gbps.
They say that the transmitter was formerly a component of silicon CMOS integrated circuits. This technology can pave the way for wireless communication with data rates ten times higher than that allowed current technology.
Band Tera Hertz frequency resource is a sub-millimeter corrugated unused for wireless communication needs. According to researchers, this frequency is ideal for super fast speed communications.
Researchers have tested the technology modulation, such as QAM eligible to 300 GHz frequency range.
“Now Tera Hertz wireless technology is reinforced by a very broad bandwidth and has the ability to QAM, QAM Usage is the key to achieve speeds of 100 Gbps at a frequency of 300 GHz,” said Minoru Fujishima, a professor at Hiroshima University.
“Today, we are usually talking about Mbps or Gbps. But we’ll talk about Tbps or Terabyte per seconds. I want to bring out the speed of fiber optics into the air. And, we have taken important steps to achieve that goal,” said Fujishima.
Research on wireless circuits at 300 GHz is still running. The scientists plan to develop circuits for frequencies of 300 GHz, as well as modulation and demodulation circuit.
