An Indian-American assistant professor designs systems that can support the 5G infrastructure in the U.S. as part of a project funded by the country’s Department of Defense. Harish Krishnamoorthy, an assistant professor in the electrical engineering and computer engineering department at the University of Houston, has received a $ 1.7 million project.

Krishnamoorthy has partnered with New Edge Signal Solutions, a Massachusetts company that builds high-speed broadband radio frequency systems, to carry out the project. 5G is the fifth generation of wireless communication technologies. In addition to faster speeds, 5G offers more bandwidth and network capacity, paving the way for a future of self-driving cars, more connected devices and high-definition connections for virtual meetings and telemedicine.
However, the rollout in the United States and elsewhere has been hampered by gaps in available technology that could operate at the high frequencies 5G requires. Krishnamoorthy, whose laboratory focuses on power electronics, said successful adoption of 5G networks requires software customization to meet requirements.
“But first we need hardware that is fast enough and can support 5G,” said Krishnamoorthy, explaining his role in developing a more powerful 5G envelope tracking power supply capable of operating in a bandwidth of 100 megahertz (MHz) or higher.
