RF & Microwave Systems

The R&D activity of the Lab is focused on the development of Microwave and millimeter wave circuits integrated into the point-to-point and point-to-multipoint digital radio systems with the following general features:

  • Frequency range: 1.4 GHz to 86 GHz
  • Channel Bandwidth up to 1GHz
  • Various modulation schemes up to 4096-QAM
  • Medium and high capacities up to 6 Gbps

Lab is mainly involved on the following areas:

  • System design: Transceiver system analysis in terms of modem capabilities, System and Circuit simulation, measurement and optimization
  • System evaluation
  • Microwave and millimeter wave design including active and passive elements (up/ down converters, LNAs, Power Amplifiers, gain control, synthesizers, VCO, switches, filters, multiplexers, couplers, combiners, circulators, polarizers)
  • Design on high frequency Printed Circuit Boards (microstrip & stripline), Waveguides (rectangular & circular) and combination of above
  • Antenna design (Flat Panel, Horn, Sectoral, linear polarization, circular polarization)
  • Test fixtures design
