The roll-out of 5th Generation (5G) telecommunications across Europe by the year 2020, and the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) with 50 billion connected devices, will strongly increase the demand for energy due to the continuous power consumption of the electronic devices needed to deliver these technologies, leading to an associated demand for more energy-efficient systems
To face these challenges, a European research project (JRP) entitled ADVENT (Metrology for advanced energy-saving technology in next generation electronics applications) has been set up as part of the EMPIR programme (European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research). LNE is leading this project, which involves 14 European partners: 6 National Metrology Institutes, 1 designated Institute, 5 universities, 1 research center and 1 SME.
The objective of this project is to develop traceable measurement techniques that will support industry to develop novel low power devices for 5G and IoT applications.
Launched in September 2017, it should provide its first results in January 2019.
