The first batch of chips from Carpete Technologies are here.
The first batch is ready to be used.
The new technology will enable the home to process information at speeds of up to 100 megabits per second and to communicate wirelessly with smart devices, according to Carpetee.
The chip will also be used to provide data connectivity between the car’s cameras, sensors and the internet.
“We have already taken a big step forward by introducing the first chips with a new class of chip technology called 5G,” Carpetree co-founder and CEO Dr Tim Bales told BBC Sport.
“The 5G technology is a big leap forward and it will bring unprecedented power and performance to the home.”
What is 5G?
5G is the latest generation of mobile broadband technology, which is being developed by carriers to help them compete against the likes of Apple and Google.
It uses new radio frequency technology to transfer data at up to 1Gbps.
The technology is used by millions of homes across the world, and is expected to make up half of all new wireless connections by 2020.

The UK’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is working with Carpetae on the project.
“This is a great milestone for the home and the British economy,” said BIS chief executive Paul Gove.
“It’s also a great demonstration of how important 5G will be for the future of our society.”
Carpete has developed the technology using research it has conducted in the US and Europe.
The company says the chips can “transform the way people live and work” and offer the benefits of modern wireless technology.
The 5GHz chip, which was first developed by Carpetes own semiconductor company, is also being used in the car industry, with the chip enabling cars to drive more efficiently.
Carpetea’s chips are made of aluminium and silicon.
The company is now looking to commercialise the chips by 2021.
“If this project goes ahead, the first commercialised product will be in 2023,” said Dr Bales.
The chips are designed to be flexible and capable of working with a wide range of sensors and features, including cameras, audio, air conditioning, lighting and the latest digital technology.
This is the first time the technology has been used in a commercial application.
“What this is all about is being able to work with the sensors in the home, the cameras and the sensors, and be able to get to a point where the data is able to be processed at such speeds,” said Carpetees co-founders Dr Tim and Dr Tim.
“For us it is a really big milestone because this is the time where we have the most exciting opportunities for 5G in the future.”
What are the advantages of using the chips?
The chips will enable people to process data at speeds that are comparable to those of 4G technology, allowing them to process text and emails at speeds up to 10 megabit per second.
However, these speeds are limited by the limitations of the technology, according Carpetere.
“Our technology is designed to handle the most common scenarios and there is only so much power that you can put into the chips,” said Mr Bales of Carpetech.
“There is a limit to how much power you can use and how fast you can operate them, and we think we have solved that problem by making them so flexible and powerful that you needn’t need to be a supercomputer to use them.”
You can run a system that is as simple as a couple of metres long and you can do it in a car or you can run it in the kitchen or in the garage.”5G will enable us to do these things more efficiently and in a way that is a lot more cost-effective.”
What will the new chips cost?
The technology can be used for everything from the video game console to the televisions that connect to the internet, said Dr Barres.
“To get from here to there, it is like being able in 10 seconds to get your hands on a fridge that you will have to get in the supermarket,” he said.
“In the future we will be able go into a supermarket and get a food item that costs 10 times as much as the one we buy in the store.”
The chip is expected be available to consumers in the next few years, with Careptech’s chip being used to connect
