Centrum SIX is focused on the research of communication systems and their components to be operated in emerging frequency bands. Activities of the Centre dominantly cover:
Research of base-band layer of communication systems: (sub)millimeter-wave propagation, radiation, amplification, filtering and mixing;
Research of system layer of communication systems: mobile systems, optical systems, satellite systems, and digital TV systems;
Research of convergence of information and communication technologies;
Research of acquisition, processing and representation of communication signals to users (acoustic signals, video signals, text information and their combination in multimedia);
Research of sensing and detecting chemical and biological substances, and physical quantities to be transmitted by communication channels.
Implementation of the SIX Centre was started in August 1, 2010. The research infrastructure of the Centre will be completed in December 2012. In January 2013, the full research operation of the Centre will be started. Research will be performed in a close cooperation with partner companies.
The SIX Centre is a common initiative of the Dept. of Radio Electronics, Dept. of Telecommunication, Dept. of microelectronics and the Dept. of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication, Brno University of Technology.
