InterDigital to Collaborate with Columbia University on National Science Foundation Research Grant

September 23, 2014 / NSF, EARS, Spectrum / Posted By: Stephanie Stocker

Three professors from Columbia University, in collaboration with InterDigital’s Dr. Ariela Zeira as the industrial principal co-investigator, have been awarded a $750,000 three-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Enhancing Access to the Radio Spectrum (EARS) Program for a project titled “Low-Power, Multi-Tiered, Shared-Spectrum Access Terminals using Compressive Scanning and On-Top-of-CMOS BAW Filter Banks.”

This project will evaluate challenges that exist in a multi-tiered, shared-spectrum access communication system. The research will focus on using tier-3 cognitive radio terminals to dynamically leverage spectrum that is being underutilized at the time. InterDigital’s industrial partnership will provide the research professors with real-world application expertise and system integration knowledge.
