Microwave Frontends for Dependable Wireless Communication and Localization Systems

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


Adaptable antenna systems and microwave frontends are key elements of modern wireless localization and communication systems as they affect the overall performance and reliability. Two of the factors that can be exploited are the Polarization Diversity and scaling towards the mmWave frequency. In our approach, we study the advantages and disadvantages of each technique, therefore hardware implementations are proposed to demonstrate their impact in real world scenarios. To evaluate the performance, a two-step plan is in place, starting with the design, simulation and optimization of a Cavity Backed Archimedean Spiral Antenna (ASA) and subsequently moving to the mmWave frequency range to implement Reconfigurable Reflectarrays.
