To design a duplexer system for high-speed UWB communications

Student project: Design of Duplexer for high-speed UWB Communications

What you will do

The need for high data rate transfer is emerging in biomedical applications, such as in brain-computer interfaces (BCI) and multimedia solutions, e. g., virtual reality . Impulse Radio Ultrawideband (IR-UWB) technology is a promising solution due to its wideband operation. A duplexer system is demanded for spectrum and hardware efficiency in such high data rate communication systems. Moreover, it enables the co-existence of connectivity and sensing, which is called “Radcom.” Through this project, we are targeting to design a wideband full-duplex system for high-speed IR-UWB. The project will cover the following activities:

  • Literature studies on state-of-the-art wideband duplexer.
  • Literature studies on applications.
  • Understanding both analog and digital/system design methodologies.
  • Architecture study and proposal.
  • Circuit implementation.
  • Layout and post-layout simulation.

What we do for you

As the world-best research institute, we have completed the unprecedented researches in Ultra Low-Power (ULP) RF transceiver field and presented in top-level conferences and journals. With the student project, you will gain the top-quality level of integrated circuit design experience.

  • You are a Msc/Bsc student.
  • You are available for a period of 12 months.
  • Good analytical skills (e.g. Mathematical skills).
  • Good CAD skills (e. g. MATLAB/Simulink/Spectre/ADS).
  • Knowledge of designing (analog /RF) CMOS circuits.
  • Knowledge of RF systems.
  • Entitled to do an internship in the Netherlands.
  • Motivated student eager to work independently and expand knowledge in the field.
  • Good written and verbal English skills.
