Reconfigurable intelligent surfaces vital to 6G communications

22nd March 2021
Lanna Deamer

6G communications is planned to be strongly deployed from 2030. The multibillion-dollar investments in its research have begun. IDTechEx has been first with a commercial appraisal that concentrates on the important hardware, '6G Communications Market, Devices, Materials 2021-2041'.

Prioritising materials and processes and using everyday language, this webinar shares some of the research in an essential drill down report now available on the smart surfaces needed everywhere and without which the whole 6G project will fail. It is, '6G Communications Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces Roadmap, Materials, Market 2021-2045'.

Learn how magnitude improvements in response time, data handling, data capacity and more are once again going to be achieved by going to higher frequency despite this meaning more hardware to handle feebler beams. The terahertz (far-infrared) chosen can only arrive at the phone in your pocket and the internet of things node in your factory if it is smartened up and redirected around obstructions by smart surfaces on buildings, billboards, ceilings and more.

This is a multi-billion dollar-opportunity for the printed electronics industry, without which these surfaces will be unaffordable. Learn how the new reprogrammable metamaterial patterning is essential in them to minimise power and cost but there is a second stage where the surfaces amplify the beam so it goes further, work unpowered devices and even charge your phone. What materials, thin film components, deposition processes? This webinar and the report have the answers.

IDTechEx will be hosting the same webinar three times in one day, so please join which ever session is the most convenient for you. Spaces are limited.

Date: Thursday 1st April 2021 Duration: 30 minutes
