Mitsubishi Electric Develops Intelligent Wireless Communication Technology Supported with Artificial Intelligence

Is expected to help reducing IoT device sizes and power consumption

TOKYO, February 14, 2018 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it has developed the world's first wireless communication technology capable of automatic optimization using its Maisart* proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced digital technology to enhance both performance and capacity. In tests, the amplifier has been proven to achieve double the normal gain and improve power efficiency by 20 percentage points compared to conventional systems. Furthermore, the transmitter can use various wireless communication access-mode standards while transmitting up to three arbitrary operating frequency bands simultaneously on a single circuit. This novel technology, which incorporates Mitsubishi Electric's proprietary AI and all-digital technologies, is expected to significantly reduce the power consumption, improve the miniaturization and support the globalization of multiband IoT equipment for multiple communication standards and regulations.

Details

1) The technology, which uses a proprietary AI algorithm to intelligently control and automatically optimize the input signal and multiple voltage controls of the amplifier, can be applied for both high and very low output power. The result is reduced power consumption in communication equipment compared with amplifiers operated with conventional technology. Under the current hardware configuration, Mitsubishi Electric's AI amplifier can support frequencies of up to 3.8GHz, which is suitable for use with 5G.
2) Mitsubishi Electric's all-digital transmitter technology uses software control to simultaneously support up to three arbitrary operating frequencies and communication standards on one circuit. It replaces the conventional analog transmitter with a simplified solution - an innovative programmable digital encoder that can be easily reconfigured with AI and software-defined radio.
