The Paderborn university participates in the Meteracom project with the System
and Circuit Technology (SCT) group at the Department of electrical engineering
and information technology. The SCT group is located at the Heinz Nixdorf
The Circuit and System Technology group headed by Prof. Christoph Scheytt
deals with RF systems, Silicon Photonics, fiber optics communications, RFID,
high speed ADC/DACs and mm-wave radar systems. At the Institute, an ultra-low
phase noise opto-electronic frequency synthesizer is developed for the
THz-radio link. In addition, an ultra wideband sampler using silicon photonics
technology platform is under development.
In the Meteracom project, the SCT group
contributes with its expertise in frequency synthesizer design, RFIC and EPIC
design in fully silicon and silicon photonics technology platforms and
characterization of the RF systems.
