IHP coordinates large EU-Project on the development of the 5th Generation of Mobile Networks (5G). The project kick-off meeting takes place on 24.-26.07.2017 at IHP in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.
The world becomes more mobile and the requirements for transmitting pictures, videos, music and cloud data are increasing.
To cope with the growing mobile data traffic, the fifth generation of mobile networks, termed 5G, is being defined and developed. IHP - Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics in Frankfurt (Oder) is coordinating an EU funded project in this field.
“Within 5G-PICTURE, the aim is to develop an integrated transport network involving optical and wireless communications, to allow a dynamic adaptation to changing requirements. Together with distributed compute and storage resources, this will be the backbone for our future mobile internet access”, explains Prof. Eckhard Grass, coordinator and Team Leader at IHP.
The project consortium, consisting of nineteen European partners, has a vision of an integrated, scalable and open 5G infrastructure aiming to support operational and end-user services for both information and communications technologies (ICT) and ‘vertical’ industries.
“This infrastructure will rely on a converged fronthaul and backhaul solution, integrating advanced wireless access and novel optical network domains”, adds Dr. Jesús Gutiérrez Terán, who is Project Leader at IHP’s department “System Design”.
5G is considered to significantly enhance former mobile radio platforms. It will allow a speed of several Gigabit per second - at least ten times faster than current 4G technology. The EU is funding “5G-PICTURE” with about eight million Euro as part of the Horizon 2020 program. The work at IHP will be funded with about 600.000 Euro.
“The joint work of experts from many different countries across Europe in a project like 5G-PICTURE not only accelerates the development of the 5G technology but also supports mutually beneficial cooperation in science, technology and industries within the European Union at a larger scale”, points out Prof. Eckhard Grass.
The project kick-off meeting takes place on 24.-26.07.2017 at IHP in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
