La student branch IEEE (Bee Branch) du laboratoire IMS a le plaisir d'accueillir le Professeur Domenico Zito de l'Université d'Aarhus (Danemark) lundi 11 décembre. Il tiendra une conférence sur le thème "Millimeter-Wave Circuits and Systems for 5G Wireless Communication, Sensing and Imaging" à 15h00 dans l'amphi JP Dom du Laboratoire IMS.
Abstract : Mobile Internet, The Internet of Things, Cloud Technology, Autonomous and Near-Autonomous Vehicles are among the most disruptive technologies with the highest estimated economic impact in 2025. All of them are strongly related with Future Wireless Networks and Communications, 5G and beyond, and dictated by the needs in terms of high data rate (>1Gb/s) and low latency (<1ms). As a consequence, bandwidth is a severe bottleneck and so future wireless communications are expected to be primarily based on millimetre-wave radio links.
This talk highlights some of the most profitable application scenarios for emerging wireless communications in the most widespread mm-wave frequency bands allocated worldwide, and addresses some of the main design challenges for the system-on-chip implementation of mm-wave transceivers enabling next-generation wireless communications, along with some solutions and insights extracted from the research carried out by our group for some of the most critical building blocks, such as pulse generators, low noise amplifiers, oscillators, phase shifters and power amplifiers.
Domenico Zito (S’00–M’04–SM’14) received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. Since 2016, he is a Full Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University, Denmark. He was a Visiting Researcher at STMicroelectronics, Catania, Italy, in 2001, and Austriamicrosystems, Graz, Austria, in 2002. In 2005, he joined the University of Pisa, Italy, and in 2009, he joined the University College Cork and Tyndall National Institute, Cork, Ireland, as permanent academic staff member. He has authored over 150 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conference proceedings (+30 invited papers), seven chapters of book, and two books (one book edited), and holds three patents. His research interests include microwave and mm-wave devices, circuits and systems for emerging data communication, networking, processing and computing, contactless sensing and imaging applications. He has served as a Technical Programme Committee (TPC) member of the European Solid-State Circuits Conference since 2012, TPC Chair of PhD Research In Electronics and Micro-Electronics (PRIME) 2009 and IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS) 2016, Associate Editor for the International Journal of Circuit Theory and Applications, Wiley, Guest and Associate Editor for the IEEE Trans. on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers. He received three best paper awards from IEEE conferences. In 2005 received the Mario Boella (VP URSI) Prize for Research and Innovation in Wireless Technology in Europe. In 2014 was Start-up Laboratory of the Year Winner at Irish Laboratory Awards. In 2015 received the IEEE Education Society Award for his Distinguished Contributions and Leadership in Engineering Education.
