Leti experiments with 5G networks at MINATEC
Leti convinced France’s telecommunications regulator ARCEP to issue a license for the institute to run a six-month trial (H1 2017) at 3.5 GHz with a bandwidth of 40 MHz.
The frequency could be the first to be released for 5G network rollout, and Leti wants to use it for multiservice transmission tests on the MINATEC campus. A base station was installed at a high point on the campus and three mobile terminals will be used to emulate smartphones.
The researchers working on the project will start by tackling how to enhance the signal waveform and decode it at the receiver. In...
A majority stake in Tronics is a golden opportunity for Epcos
Tronics Microsystems was founded in 1997. Can you tell us how it all came about?
During the 1990s, Leti had developed innovative sensor technologies for several manufacturers looking to create products like accelerometers and pressure sensors using these technologies and penetrate new high-growth markets. At the time, I also wanted to seize the opportunity. So I founded Tronics as a Leti spinoff.
What has helped to make Tronics so successful?
The primary factor is without a doubt technology. Tronics has leveraged Leti research and patents to manufacture its MEMS. However, Tronics also managed to build a team of engineers combining manufacturing know-how...
