What will you be doing?
The design-cycle of an on-chip RF transformer is normally time-consuming as it requires multiple iterations of (manual) layout adjustments and EM-simulations.
By using the optimizer within the Keysight ADS software in combination with ADS’s Momentum EM-simulator, this process can be enhanced.
For this purpose a macro is required that you will build. This macro should adjust the RF transformer’s layout as function of its design parameters, such as the number of windings and inner diameter.
This macro will preferably be implemented in ADS’s AEL programming language and should be tested within the design environment.
The duration of this internship is at least 3 months.
What do we require of you?
What can you expect of your work situation?
You will perform this assignment in the department of Radar Technology. We are a passionate and creative group of professionals (60 people) dedicated to the specification, development and evaluation of innovative, high-performance MMICs, miniaturised and integrated RF subsystems, antennas and front-ends.
The department is at the heart of novel, game-changing radar system and signal processing concepts for the military, space and civil domains.
