Wireless chip-to-chip communication: current and future

The NEMF21 project is working on a new approach to microchip design that would enable wireless chip-to-chip communication. Moving away from wired connections will open the way for more powerful electronic devices that will shape the electronic consumer market of the 21st century.

Electronic communication devices of the future will require wireless chip-to-chip (C2C) communication that overcome the bottlenecks caused by wired connections. Designing the architecture for wireless C2C networks is however impossible with standard engineering tools.

Recent advances in electrical engineering and mathematical physics are however bringing researchers closer to the breakthroughs necessary to enable wireless C2C technology in future devices. Based on this, and in an effort to prepare for the next generation of electronic devices, the EU-funded NEMF21 project is designing new and efficient modelling strategies for exploiting noisy electromagnetic fields in complex microchip environments.

Electromagnetic fields are physical fields produced by electrically charged objects. ‘Noise’ describes a random fluctuation in an electrical signal which can serve a particular purpose. By creating a revolutionary noisy electromagnetic field simulation toolbox, the NEMF21 consortium plans to develop the first sophisticated models of wireless interconnections, including improved signal-processing strategies and new insight into wave modelling in complex environments.

If successful, the outcomes of NEMF21 will lead to the development of next-generation microchip design, including their miniaturisation, improved energy efficiency and better signal range.

Ultimately, this should lead to the development of the next generation of faster and more powerful electronic devices, including mobile phones, tablets and computers, thereby revolutionising the electronic consumer market of the 21st century.

To restrict search results to articles in the Information Centre, i.e. this site, use this search box rather than the one at the top of the page.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
