Student Project: Low-power ultra-wideband and narrowband dual-mode transmitter. 

What you will do

UWB transceivers are becoming increasingly important in our connected world. Many applications require low power-consumption because of the battery-powered operation. However, these applications still require versatility to enable multi-standard support and configurability to be optimized for different usage scenarios. In this project, you will do:

  • Literature studies on state-of-the-art UWB and NB transmitters,

  • Background study on transmitter designs in IMEC,

  • Architecture study and proposal,

  • Circuit implementation,

  • Layout and post-layout simulation,

  • Thesis writing and documentation,

  • In the case of high-quality design: making design into a test-chip which will be produced (tape-out).

What we do for you

As a world-best research institute, we are the center of excellence in RF research. You will receive supervision from world-renown researchers in the field of UWB and narrowband radios. You will collaborate with experts in the fields of radio system design, RF IC design, application and software development. You will get the opportunity to experience all steps of a research project, from architecture design to chip fabrication and possibly measurements.

Who you are

  • You are an MSc student.
  • You are available for a period of 9-12 months.
  • Good analytical skills (e. g. Mathematical skills)
  • Good CAD skills (e. g. MATLAB/Cadence)
  • Knowledges of designing CMOS circuits
  • Knowledges of RF systems
  • Structured way of reporting, both orally and written
  • Motivated student eager to work independently and expand knowledge in the field.
  • Good written and verbal English skills
