Technische Universiteit Delft

The Electronics Research Laboratory (ERL) at TU Delft is an analogue circuit design group, which includes RF/MMIC microelectronic and radio transceiver design, characterization and optimization in advanced silicon microelectronic technologies ranging from WLAN to ultra-wideband and mm-wave systems. Research and development of MMICs by the ERL has been extensive and focused on applications for silicon ICs operating at frequencies from 1GHz to 94GHz.

Role in the project

TUDelft will focus on developing power amplifiers with up to 20% bandwidth and PAE approaching 20-25% for mm-wave and sub-mm-wave systems. Dedicated low-loss wideband on-chip, passives power combiners and couplers will be developed. Moreover TUDelft will provide large signal data of the developed technology in the mm-wave and sub-mm-wave bands.

 

Key people involved in the project

John R. Long: Since January 2002 he has been chair of the Electronics Research Laboratory at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. His current research interests include transceiver circuits for integrated wireless and high-speed wireline data communications systems.


Leo C.N. de Vreede: In 1999 he became an associate professor, responsible for the Microwave Components Group of the Delft University of Technology. His current interest includes RF measurement systems, technology optimization and circuit concepts for wireless systems.


M. Spirito: Since April 2008 he is an Assistant Professor with the Electronics Research Laboratory at the Delft University of Technology. His research interests include the characterization of highly efficient and linear power amplifiers and the development of advanced characterization setups for millimeter and sub-mm-waves, and the integration of mm-wave sensing systems.
