The Japanese manufacturer of semiconductors ROHM today announced a joint project with specialists from the University of Osaki over the prototype of a new chip capable of transmitting record 1.5 gigabits of data per second using only one radio channel. True, a new Japanese chip works in a rather difficult to use terartz microwave radiodiapasone. The tergers range is a radio wavelength range with a frequency of 100 gigaigers to 10 teragerz. Japanese experts say that the creation of radio transmitting devices in the terartsevsky range has its pros and cons of. The first includes the possibility of creating very productive communication devices working ten times faster than modern WiFi or LTE networks. However, the flip side of these advantages is a small length of the spread of such waves, so it is almost impossible to create transmitters who will work at a distance of kilometers from each other here.
Rohm does not say anything about how their radio transmitter can work, but the company declares that the new chip is not only able to transmit huge arrays of information without wires, but also has small sizes, as well as a low price. The company says that their terager’s transmitter costs only $ 1.30, which corresponds to the price of a chip operating at a speed of 100 megabits.
It should be noted that earlier in Japan they already represented equipment for working in the terartsevsky range, but the previous product samples worked only at a distance of 20 cm.
