The University of Stuttgart participates in the METERACOM project with its
Institute of Robust Power Semiconductor Systems (ILH). The research group
around Professor Ingmar Kallfass at the University of Stuttgart has been
involved in numerous projects on THz communication, with a focus on new
approaches for high‐speed wireless communication
systems as well as integrated millimetre‐wave circuit design using state‐of‐the‐art transistor technologies.
In the METERACOM project, the ILH conducts system-level simulations of THz
transceivers in view of a specification-driven top-down transceiver design,
including the traceability of the impairments of ultra-wideband transmit and
receive analog frontends on communication signal quality, and in order to
provide a fully integrated electronic analog transmit and receive front-end
which will be used by the project partners to test and evaluate their findings
in their respective research areas.
