Twente researcher gets half a million for research wireless




Bram Nauta researcher at the University of Twente gets half a million grant from Technology Foundation STW for his research on chips. He wins the amount of money in the context of the Simon Stevin Meester title, named after a Belgian physicist.

Nauta made in the past chip designs to smartphones that use less energy to move, to improve the signal and increase. The amount of data transport His designs led to the so-called Nauta circuit, which early this century ended up in electronics. He also regularly advises chip manufacturers worldwide and has 33 patents to his name.

Recently the professor Integrated Circuit Design came to the University of Twente in the news with an antenna that disruption frequency wireless connections to go. These devices are increasingly struggling with slow wireless connections because the frequency spectrum becomes full. If there are multiple signals on one frequency, creates disturbances and the expectation is that there is just more devices come online, making it available spectrum is even fuller.

Nauta escorted a postdoctoral research as part of smart circuits on a chip designed for an antenna with four different receivers instead of one, which is energy efficient and can be. Cheaply The antennas learning as it were to focus on desired signals and ignore unwanted signals and are expected within two years on the market, so wrote Tweakers earlier.

With the amount of money of Technology Foundation STW Nauta want to do research into “wild ideas” to improve wireless communication. This concerns in particular research on transmitters and receivers that are more resistant to interference and additionally can send data faster as reported STW Monday. It is his sixteenth project that STW honored the past seven years.

STW is a foundation that has an annual budget of millions for research. Among others, the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation stop money into the fund annually, 44 and 22 million respectively.

The Simon Stevin Meester title is one of the triennial Simon Stevin titles of STW, named after the Belgian physicist Simon Stevin . In this case, it is an honorary title that provides the foundation for prominent technical scientific researchers’ excellent connecting academic work with socially relevant issues. The money, half a million, the winner may spend her research. Nauta may take the title October 2 received during the annual conference of the foundation.
