European Project ADVENT (EMPIR initiative)

ADVENT "Metrology for advanced energy-saving technology in next-generation electronics applications"
September 2017 to August 2020
European Project EMPIR : European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research
Project Number : 16ENG06

The roll-out of 5th generation (5G) telecommunications across Europe by 2020, and the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) with 50 billion connected devices, will significantly increase energy demand due to the continuous power consumption of the electronic devices needed to deliver these technologies.

ADVENT will provide traceable measurements of power, power losses and emerging electronic materials properties, to aid the development of new materials and more efficient electronic components. The results will enable European industries to optimise devices and systems designed for 5G and IoT applications requiring ultra-low power, more energy efficient operation.

ADVENT is coordinated by Laboratoire national de métrologie et d’essais (LNE) with partners : European Metrology Laboratories (Germany, UK, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Norway), PME (Electrosciences, UK) and Laboratories in France (CEMES-CNRS, UPEM, IEMN), UK (U Liverpool, U Surrey) and Spain (UPC).
