In this project building blocks, sub-systems, and full transceivers for mm-wave applications like communications and radar will be developed. The focus will be in sub-systems for receive, transmit, or frequency synthesis implemented in advanced CMOS technologies.
Innovation will be in the convergence of radar and communication transceiver circuits and systems at carrier frequencies beyond 100 GHz, beyond 10GHz of bandwidth, to enable lowest latency and exceeding data-rates of 100Gbps considering large phased array systems.
In the course of this project, research on MIMO transceiver for integrated sub-THz sensor systems with a special focus on building blocks and integrated circuits for MIMO transceivers above 100 GHz will be done. Furthermore, next generation/alternative mmW-Sensing and -imaging concepts for alternative and situation aware modulation schemes as well as imaging concept, realizations, and algorithms will be investigated.
Research will be focused on building blocks for sub-THz-sensing applications at 120, 230, 330 and 480 GHz, respectively, focused on RX-TX separation at highest frequencies as well as array optimization under the given constraints. Innovate will be on core functional blocks, the full sensor system, array.
