4th RF Workshop

The 4th RF workshop 2016 of the Radio Frequency Engineering Working Group of Austrian Research Association (ÖFG) was held at 17. and 18. October 2016 in the Holiday Inn / Congress Center Villach (CCV).

Organized by the Josef Ressel Center “Interact”  in close collaboration with the Institute of Microwave and Photonic Engineering (Graz University of Technology) the workshop became a successful event with more than 50 attendees from Vienna University of Technology, Graz University of Technology, Johannes Kepler University Linz and Carinthia University of Applied Sciences. Also a number of attendees from companies Intel, Infineon and Xtest reflected the practical relevance  of the RF workshop.
A broad and interesting program has been presented spanning from Self Localisation Systems, Transmitter/Receivers, RF CMOS circuits to Radar Systems, Optical Communication Systems, Millimeter Waves and Measurements and Antennas.

Three invited lectures gave a deep insight for latest R&D activities in wireless communication industry:

  • “RFIC for Next Generation WLAN – A System Approach“, S. Trautmann (Intel)
  • “Radio Front-End Architectures and Circuits for Emerging Wireless Applications”, F. Dielacher (Infineon Technologies)
  • “Multi-Mode RFDAC based TX Systems for Cellular Transceivers in Scaled CMOS Technologies”, D. Gruber (Intel)
