Our Latest Thesis Offers

In our group, we offer recent and interesting topics for students looking for a final project. We are glad about prospective applicants and always offer some challenging and exciting research projects. If you are interested, please get in touch with our scientific stuff. For further suggestions, you also might check our archive (German only).

Next to topics in the area of circuit design, we also focus in modeling and CAD methodology. Therefore, we offer the following topics:

  • Analogue and digital circuit design in the Cadence Virtuoso Design Framework
  • Modelling and simulation of state-of-the-art RF transceiver systems
  • Development and implementation of CAD simulation tools
  • Hardware design and deployment of circuit boards and circuits for our measurement systems

Could we rise your interest? Please take a look at the following list of topics, come along and have a chat with our research staff or send us a message!

SIC: On-Chip Self-Interference Cancellation (SIC) in mmWave Radios
Next-generation mobile communications systems (V2V, V2X, IOT, 5G) rely on efficient high-datarate and low-latency solution as compact integrated components. Wireless full-duplex communication is a real challenge if monolithically integrated (IC), which can be solved with advanced CMOS technology and innovative RX mixed-signal circuit solutions.

Most topics and objectives given can be adjusted and combined up to individual preferences and background.

Just drop a short  stating your interest and intended direction. You will receive a response as soon as possible to set up a meeting for more detailed explanation and consulting at your convenient time.

All projects are suitable and  scalable for students interested in mixed signal circuit design, RF signal processing, and integrated chip technologies.

Important: all tasks are preceded and accompanied with intense training provided by experienced researchers and supervisors.

A thesis can comprise a subset of tasks like (non-exhaustive): general literature and theoretic studies, CMOS circuit and chip designs – from schematic, layout and tape-out, to related instrumentation and measurement tasks (laboratory work), printed-circuit board design, and hardware programming (FPGA, DSP).
