VHD - VHD (very high data rates) - High Speed Air-Interface and IC Architecture for Contactless Smartcards and NFC

Project: Research project

Project Details


The project VHD breaks the actual limitations of contactless smartcard and NFC (Near Field Communication) applications in terms of low transaction time. Therefore radically innovativetransciever concepts on the one hand side as well as new IC architectures on card ad reader side will be investigated, opening up an enormous new variety of next generation applications - e-passports with a variety of biometric data, e-health cards or multimedia applications for NFC will be enabled. The aim of a 10 times reduced transaction time leads to a variety of challenges and necessary solutions wich are far beyondthe actual state of the art technology. Thus a full system approach, which includes integrated transceive structures as well as new card and reader architectures, is chosen. The main focus of research is therefore dedicated on analog transceiver concepts, integrated digital signal processing needs as well as card and reader architecture under the constraints of ultralow power and low die-size. Besides the technical feasibilityand integration on silicon, it is aim todrive standardization forward which is indispensable for a successful product development for future markets.
