LG Electronics showcases 6G systems at tech conference


Korean tech firm LG Electronics has showcased future 6G technologies at the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2022.

At the conference, which took place in South Korea’s capital Seoul last week, LG displayed its 6G communications technologies, including Full Duplex Radio transmission and reception tech that maximizes frequency efficiency, and a power amplifier device, jointly developed with the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), for the wireless transmission and reception of 6G THz data.

“Based on its advanced 6G and AI tech, LG will continue to strengthen its capabilities in various fields such as 6G communications, smart mobility, metaverse and robotics to take the customer experience to new heights,” said Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO at LG Electronics.

LG Electronics had previously showcased as-yet-unstandardized 6G technology during the 2021 Korea Science and Technology Exhibition, recently held at KINTEX in Ilsan, South Korea.

During the event, LG unveiled a power amplifier for 6G for the first time.

This is the same amplifier that was used by LG during its 6G demo in Berlin in August 2021. At that time, LG Electronics said it has successfully demonstrated the transmission and reception of wireless 6G terahertz (THz) data over 100 meters in an outdoor setting.

6G systems do not technically exist because they have not yet been standardized, but terahertz frequencies — beyond millimeter wave — are being researched to be part of future systems.
