SUCCESS Workshop in May 2013

The SUCCESS consortium announces the final workshop which will be held in Karlsruhe on May 16, 2013.       

This workshop covers the complete design and development process of a low-cost, surface-mountable millimeter-wave radar sensor, starting from a system perspective, covering the IC design including innovative methods for Built-in-Self-Test and System-in-Package-Testing, and treating a low-cost package design with integrated antennas. Different prototypes of integrated millimeter-wave sensors are presented and potential application scenarios are discussed. The workshop includes a hardware demo of the integrated sensors.

The workshop will be held at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Karlsruhe, Germany. The compositon of the SUCCESS consortium will guarantee an interesting mixture between both academic research and industrial applications. The registration fee is 200€. Please register by contacting Mr. Benjamin Göttel.

Travel to Karlsruhe:

The workshop will take place in building 50.41 of KIT. It is easy to reach by tram with stop at station "Durlacher Tor". There is also a parking spot right next to the building. Please see the campus map.

For most of the international visitors, it is best to fly to Frankfurt, then take a train to Karlsruhe HBF ( Karlsruhe has a good and efficient tram network that you can use to reach KIT (



We have reserved a certain amount of single rooms in different hotels. You can book these directly using the following link:

Please see the city map for the location of the train station, the hotels, and the workshop.
