EETAC coordinates the UPC activities onto the European Project ARTEMOS

The professors Jordi Mateu and Carlos Collado from the Department of Signal Theory and Communications (TSC) coordinate the UPC activities onto the European Project ARTEMOS (Agile RF Transceivers and Front-Ends for Future Smart Multi-Standard COmmunications ApplicationS).

This project aims at developing architecture and technologies for implementing agile radio frequency (RF) transceiver capacities in future radio communication products.


These new architecture and technologies will be able to manage multi-standard (multi-band, multi-data-rate, and multi-waveform) operation with high modularity, low-power consumption, high reliability, high integration, low costs, low PCB area, and low bill of material (BOM).


ARTEMOS is a large-scale project co-financed by ENIAC with a total cost of 40.934.495 €. The project runs for 36 months from 1st April 2011 to 31st March 2014.

The consortium consists of 38 partners including all major European players in wireless and communication hardware. It has a perfect mix of large companies (such as Intel Mobile Communications, ST- Ericsson, Thales Communications and NXP Semiconductors), SMEs, institutes and universities. Budget-wise the industry accounts for 60%, SME for 15 %, and research and universities for 25 % of the total budget. The total of 38 partners are spread over 12 countries. Every partner will be working on a leading edge technology, covering a key function within one or more wireless communication building blocks. Also the complete industrial supply chain is covered from simple components and antennas to frontend modules, transceivers and baseband chips as well as a cell phone manufacturer to complete the full application.  In particular UPC will be involved in Work Packages 2, 3 and 5 for:

  • WP2: Enabling Active Building Blocks for Agile RF solutions
  • WP3: Tunable passive front-end solutions
  • WP5: Methodology & Simulation Tools
