IC Challenges for 5G
Professorassigned by the China Recruitment
Program of Global Experts (1000-plan)
Director of ASIP Lab, Beijing Institute of Technology
Dr. Dake Liu is the chair professor for Computer engineering of Linköping University, Sweden. He is the state expert of China, professor assigned by China recruitment of global expert (1000 plan). He is currently the director of ASIP (Application Specific Instruction-set Processor) Lab (co-lab with Synopsys), Beijing Institute of Technology. He spun off Coresonic Sweden acquired by MTK and FreehandDSP Sweden acquired by VIA. His research interests are ASIP for SDR, communication systems, and medical micro systems.
5G mobile communication system offers ultrahigh bandwidth, low latency, and higher spectrum efficiency as well flexible accesses.
At the same time the hardware implementation will be a great challenge. There have been much research on system algorithm level. However, there is so far no research on IC implementation. Available FPGA based kernel circuits cannot expose sufficient system design challenges. UND will be the next growth point for OEMs. The knowledge on the related hardware cost is thus essential. The seminar will expose IC related challenges for OEMs, semiconductors, and researches.
