Industry’s First 5G Algorithm Innovation Competition
Altera, now a part of Intel Corporation, announced the results of the 5G Algorithm Innovation Competition, the industry’s first awards competition to focus on aligning silicon and systems companies with the research community to create a pool of new and innovative ideas to help accelerate 5G, the fifth generation of mobile networks.
First announced in May by Altera, now the Intel Programmable Solutions Group, Xidian University, and Terasic, the 5G Algorithm Innovation Competition was sponsored by technology leaders and gold sponsors Huawei and Intel, and silver sponsor Spreadtrum, and attracted an impressive 184 teams from leading universities from a wide geographical area. The 184 teams consisted of 462 students from 76 universities in 31 Chinese cities.
Participating student teams were required to submit link-level simulations and logical implementations of three 5G new air-interface key algorithms, SCMA (Sparse Code Multiple Access), F-OFDM (Filtered-OFDM) and polar code, based on Altera FPGAs.
Student Teams Honored for Award-winning 5G Projects
Thirty teams were selected to move forward to the final competition, of which there were twenty teams awarded the inaugural 5G Algorithm Innovation Competition Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.
