Terasic Hosts The Industry's First 5G Algorithm Innovation Competition
May. 22th , 2015【 Terasic Inc 】
Terasic Inc. is pleased to host the 2015 InnovateAsia 5G competition, the industry’s first university competition focused on the most advanced technology for communications networks of the future. Other than Terasic Inc, this 5G-focused competiton is hosted by Altera, Xidian University and sponsored by Huawei, Intel, and Spreadtrum.
Successfully held for 11 consecutive years, the InnovateAsia Program is not only a FPGA design competition in APAC but also is an arena to celebrate the innovations of top students.
Participating student teams are required to submit simulations and logical implementation schemes of 5G new air interface algorithm based on Altera FPGAs and the three core 5G algorithms: SCMA (Sparse Code Multiple Access), F-OFDM (Filtered-OFDM), and Polar Code.

“We see a huge potential emerging with 5G cellular infrastructure; its social impact will be even more profound than 3G and 4G, as it will drive innovation across all industries, from wireless to automotive and industrial,” said Erhaan Shaikh, Vice President & Managing Director in Asia-Pacific, Altera. “There are some very exciting technology developments, for example SCMA, energy-efficient communications, cognitive radio networks, and visible light communications. Altera is fully committed to this research initiative and, in the future, we plan to extend this 5G University competition worldwide, leveraging the power of the global research community to drive innovation.”
Continued from the success we had with previous years' InnovateAsia design competition, where we see many talented and innovative students' projects, there should be no doubt that we will see more brilliant works from 2015 InnovateAsia 5G Algorithm Competition.
