 Central aim of organisation
Research and teaching in the fields of RF, microwave, and mixed signal circuit engineering

 Briefly describe your organisation
In the field of theoretical and applied research the Microwave Engineering Group at the Institute of Electrodynamics, Microwave and Circuit Engineering (EMCE) is active in the frequency range from DC to 70GHz. The group combines its expertise in microwave with a strong background in signal processing. Research covers 2.5D/3D electromagnetic field simulation, RF/microwave circuit and system design, measurement systems, and antenna design/measurement.

Typical application fields are:
- Passive UHF RFID: channel emulation and localization/ranging
- Power amplifiers: High linearity, high efficiency, load-pull systems, switched mode power amplifiers
- Material characterization: PCB substrate materials, anisotropic media (free space and conducted)
- System design: Dedicated measurement systems, airborne radios
- Antennas: Design and measurement of antennas up to 40 GHz

Besides RF/microwaves the group also has a broad experience in other topics, allowing for complex system designs:
- CAD/CAM engineering
- Microcontroller, RTOS
- FPGA, Digital Signal Processing
