PhD Call

Power amplifiers for millimeter-wave & sub-Terahertz transmitters
  • High-efficiency (PAE, drain-efficiency) as well as high output power
  • Concept and (co)-design including class-E power amplifier, differential hybrid, modulator, on-chip antenna, and phase-shifter
  • Model based framework for co-optimization of technology, circuit, and application
  • Circuit design in most-advanced nano-scale CMOS technologies
  • Measurements of the developed transmitter circuits

SAL mmWave RF

Silicon Austria Labs is perfor­ming cutting-edge re­search in its world-class mmWave RF Lab and Re­search Unit RF on the physical layer of RF systems for future 5G/​6G (UE, front and back-haul), and milli­meter-wave imaging/​sensing/​radar appli­ca­tions.

In the domain of mmWave/​RF SAL colla­bo­rates closely with the Johannes Kepler Univer­sity Linz and leading industry part­ners on e.g. RF/​milli­meter-wave trans­ceiver archi­tec­tures robust in terms of inter­fe­rence und coexis­tence, recon­fi­gurable RF systems for trans­cei­vers and RF/​milli­meter-wave front-end modules (archi­tec­tural reuse and/​or resource sharing), and large-scale phased-array antennas and beam­for­ming struc­tures, which are targe­ting milli­meter-wave and sub-Tera­hertz commu­ni­ca­tions (5G, 6G), radars and imagers.

In support of the design activi­ties the mmWave RF Lab is equipped with the best in-class test infra­struc­ture covering the GHz and low THz frequency range.
