A University of California-Irvine team is working to develop a 6G communications chip.

“It is breakthrough technology,” according to project leader and Professor Payam Heydari. The group is trying to quadruple the speed of 5G chips, the current new standard, and could, “change the way transmitters and receivers are designed.”

The team has applied got several patents and sees potential commercialization at least two years down the road.
