Self-Driving Vehicles to Make Debut on UC San Diego Roads in January

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

The University of California San Diego will turn its campus into a test bed for self-driving vehicles starting in January 2018.

The project will be implemented in stages. The first will be to put self-driving mail delivery carts on the road. The carts will run on algorithms developed by UC San Diego researchers who are part of the Contextual Robotics Institute. Backup drivers will initially ride in the carts as a safety measure.

Keysight Technologies, University of California San Diego Demonstrate the World's Fastest 28 GHz 5G Band, Bidirectional Phased-Array

Thursday, June 1, 2017

Record-setting 8 Gbps data rate achieved using bidirectional 64-element link with phased-array beam-pointing capabilities—supports applications in 5G, aerospace and defense

Highlights:

  • The demonstration made use of University of California (UC) San Diego transmit/receive phased-array chips with a noise figure less than 4.6 dB
  • Uses TowerJazz high-performance SiGe BiCMOS SBC18H3 process
  • Benefits from Keysight software and hardware for signal generation and analysis

TowerJazz and UC San Diego Demonstrate Best in Class 5G Mobile Transmit-Receive Chips with Greater than 12 Gbps Data Rates

Thursday, February 23, 2017

NEWPORT BEACH and SAN DIEGO, Calif., Feb. 23, 2017 – TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, and the University of California San Diego, a recognized leader for microwave, millimeter-wave, mixed-signal RFICs, and phased arrays, demonstrate for the first time a greater than 12 Gbps, 5G phased-array chip set.  This chip set demonstrates that products can be fabricated today to meet the emerging 5G telecommunications standards for the next wave of worldwide mobile communications. The chipset operates at 28 to 31 GHz, a new communications band planned for release by the FCC.

Transparent window coatings that keep buildings and cars cool on sunny days. Devices that could more than triple solar cell efficiencies. Thin, lightweight shields that block thermal detection.

These are potential applications for a thin, flexible, light-absorbing material developed by engineers at the University of California, San Diego.

5G at 60 GHz sets data rate record at 2 Gbps at 300 m, 4 Gbps at 100 m

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Keysight Technologies with the University of California San Diego have announced the longest bidirectional phased-array link in the 60 GHz band. At a link distance of 300 m, the 32-element array achieved a data rate of greater than 2 Gbps over all scan angles up to ±45 degrees.

Data rates were 4 Gbps at 100 m and 500 Mbps at 800 m over most scan angles. Initial tests by a leading wireless provider suggest the system can deliver content to eight homes at a time at up to 300 m.
