RF Systems

RF Systems are bringing innovation in wireless and radar systems technologies to the next level. The team focuses on developing key systems technologies from MHz to sub-THz frequency range in emerging 5G/6G and radar/imaging/sensor applications.

Research focus

  • Massive MIMO 5G (sub-6GHz and mmWave) transceiver frontends
  • Design of mmWave and sub-THz RF integrated circuits (PA, PLL, Phase Shifters, LNAs, Mixers) in advanced silicon technologies
  • (Ultra)-low power RF circuit design and wire­less power transfer (WPT)
  • Radar sensor signal process­ing including machine learning and sensor fusion
  • Inter­fer­ence reduc­tion and coex­is­tence of heterogenous wireless systems
  • Agile analog/RF IC design
  • RF ICs for secure wireless networks
  • System architecture and analysis of phase-array/MIMO RF front-ends

 

Research Competencies

  • RF, mm-wave and sub-THz integrated circuit design in cutting edge CMOS (bulk, FinFET, SOI) and bipolar technologies
  • Wire­less proto­cols and stan­dards (RFID, 802.15.3, LTE (incl. NB-IOT), 5G, ...) knowledge for transceiver design and testbed communication development
  • RF and mmWave PCB Design
  • A complete set of integrated circuits CAD tools are available to support systems, circuit and device modeling as well as design of SoC ASICs
  • The access to silicon technologies are enabled via Europractice production service
  • Equipped laboratory for testing integrated circuit proof-of-concept prototypes (RF and mmWave frontend building blocks) on PCB
  • Virtual proto­typing, measure­ment and testing

 

Applications

  • mmWave and sub-6GHz transceivers for 5G base station massive MIMO antenna arrays
  • OTA testbed for radar and 5G mmWave communication devices
