Student project: Full-Duplex Front-End for FMCW Radar

2 dagen geleden

We have achieved good success on radar solutions, e. g. the record-low power radar for vital signs and occupancy sensing, presented at ISSCC 2019*.

To continue our success, we will develop key components of radar that provides small system form factor while keeping low power consumption.

In such design, A single-antenna Frequency-Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) RF front-end design with high TX-RX isolation is promising.

  • What you will do

    FMCW radars are preferable in terms of high resolution and low sensitivity. However, due to its duplex manner, TX-RX direct coupling (spillover) is a key concern, and it is closely related to the system form factor, e.

    g. the physical distance between TX and RX antenna and the efficiency of antennas. To minimize both the coupling and form factor, a single-antenna, full-duplex radar front-end with high TX-RX leakage suppression will be investigated in this project.

  • Literature studies on state-of-the-art FMCW radar and TX-RX leakage suppression.
  • Understanding both analog and digital / system design methodologies.
  • Architecture study and proposal.
  • Circuit implementation.
  • Layout and post-layout simulation.
  • What we do for you

    As the world-best research institute, we have completed the unprecedented researches in Ultra Low-Power (ULP) RF transceiver field and presented in top-level conferences and journals.

    With the student project, you will gain the top-quality level of integrated circuit design experience.

    Who you are

  • You are a Msc / Bsc student.
  • You are available for a period of 12 months.
  • Good analytical skills (e. g. Mathematical skills).
  • Good CAD skills (e. g. MATLAB / Simulink / Spectre / ADS).
  • Knowledges of designing CMOS circuits.
  • Knowledges of RF systems.
  • Entitled to do an internship in the Netherlands.
  • Motivated student eager to work independently and expand knowledge in the field.
  • Good written and verbal English skills.
