Roadmap FocusiNEMI, along with several industry and academic partners, is developing the 5G/6G mmWave Materials and Electrical Test Technology Roadmap (5G/6G MAESTRO) as part of the NIST Advanced Manufacturing Technology (MFGTech) Roadmap Program. The goal is to create a foundation of knowledge and expertise in the U.S. to support the development and manufacturing of leading edge 5G and 6G products.
MAESTRO will be a comprehensive 10-year hardware roadmap for mmWave materials characterization and testing. It will focus on the top two gaps in 5G materials development and testing as defined in various industry reports: high-speed/ultra-low loss materials (availability, testing and characterization) and electrical testing and standardization. The technology scope includes:
- Materials development
- Electrical test
- Manufacturing scale-up
- Workforce development
