Chandigarh, Feb. 2: Chandigarh, Feb. 2: Ultra Wide Band (UWB) systems, with their main passive components–the antenna and filter–are gaining world-wide popularity in modern communication era, particularly for short and medium range communications.
Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North-Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh. made this observation when he visited the Chandigarh based Semi Conductor Laboratory (SCL) of the Department of Space on Sunday.
Dr. Singh said that the inherent accompanying challenges of rapid scientific advancement in modern communication technology will be to cater to a wide range of frequencies and at the same time also develop mechanism for rejection of undesired frequencies. Obviously, this aspect would require further research in order to meet requirements in the fields of Space, Defence and other applications, he added.
Lauding the work being done in the Chandigarh laboratory under the Department of Space, Dr. Singh said that this is perhaps the first establishment of its kind in the country which is researching and developing semi-conductor with the objective of implementing the new concept of UWB on Silicon Substrate.
Director, Semi Conductor Laboratory, Chandigarh, Surender Singh explained to the Minister various new innovations being developed to increase the speed of performance.
