Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is a higher education and research organisation with about 8000 employees, 18,500 students, and a total annual budget of about 700 million Euros. KIT was established on 01/10/2009 as merger of Universität Karlsruhe (founded in 1825), one of Germany’s leading research universities, and Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe (founded in 1956), one of the largest research centres in the Helmholtz Association.

The Institut für Hochfrequenztechnik und Elektronik (IHE) is one of the 13 institutes of the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Founded 50 years ago the IHE performs research in nearly all fields related to microwaves. Presently the IHE has 2 full professors, 2 part time professors, 6 administrative staff members and 18 research assistants. In close cooperation with industry as well as state funding organizations the IHE is working on technologies for a large variety of applications, e.g. wireless communication systems, electromagnetic sensors, ultra wide band systems, automotive radars. Three scientists from the IHE will be part of this project.

Tasks in the project:

  • Development of the 120 GHz antennas for integration into the package

  • Design and optimization of the inter-connect between antenna and MMIC

  • Performance tests of all packaging components especially the antennas and inter-connects

  • Leader of work package 3 (package & antenna design)

  • Millimeter wave measurement support for the packaging group

  • Radar system design

  • Support for development of the testability concept


  • Radar modulation schemes and system design

  • Antenna design

  • Microwave & millimeter wave circuit design

  • Microwave packaging technologies

  • Electro-magnetic simulation

  • Microwave material measurement

  • Microwave and millimeter wave measurement techniques
