After successful completion of the course students will be able to solve a typical RF problem. Depending on the problem, this includes literature study, RF circuit design and RF measurement. Students will gain lots of hands-on experience and will learn how to use RF design tools and RF measurement equipment.

Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung

Students can choose from a list of individual topics/problems which need to be solved on an individual basis. A strong focus will be put onto hands-on topics, requiring the student to assemble an RF PCB and/or perform measurements in the lab. Depending on the chosen topic, microwave simulators (2.5D or 3D full wave EM simulators) will be used as well.

Examples for topics are (the current list of topics will be presented during the kick off meeting):

  • Butler matrix for eight antennas
  • PIN-diode-based phase shifter
  • PIN-diode-based attenuator
  • transmit/receive switch
  • 3D EM simulation of a resonator
  • picosecond pulse generation
  • EMC measurement with a GTEM cell
  • phase noise analysis of two synchronized PLL synthesizers
  • ...

Please note: Students can bring in their own topics as well - the supervisor will check if it fits the lecture.

The work will mainly be done independently. Of course, the supervisors are available for questions and support. At the end of the term you present your results to other course attendees by a 15 min presentation and hand in a report to your supervisor.


Students will perform a task, typically an RF circuit design or RF measurement problem. This will be done individually in the lab.
