The scale and complexity of research is growing at enormous rates. Using wireless systems as an example, new technologies for the fifth generation or 5G wireless networks presents researchers with unprecedented challenges to address consumers’ demand for more data. With the rapid adoption of smart and connected devices, consumers not only expect more bandwidth but also higher reliability and more ubiquitous connectivity. Against this backdrop, wireless researchers must find new ways to solve these challenges while also compressing the time from theory to widespread commercial deployment. Dr. Truchard will discuss his perspectives on the history of design, prototyping, test, and measurement, and extrapolate to the future of system level design for wireless communications systems. Key tenets are a strong cooperation between hardware and software and a focus on the product ecosystem.
