Ruhr University in Bochum, Professor for Integrated High Frequency Circuits
The successful cooperation of many years with the Ruhr University in Bochum was followed in 2015 by the joint establishment of a professorship for Integrated High Frequency Circuits in the Faculty for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. This professorship is held by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Nils Pohl, the Head of the Department for Millimeter Wave Radar and Ultrahigh Frequency Sensors at Fraunhofer FHR. He and his team conduct research on integrated circuits for radar techniques, high-resolution and miniaturized radar systems, circuits for multichannel measurement systems (MIMO radar) as well as ultrahigh frequency circuits up to 300 GHz and beyond. With the development of faster, more precise and, above all, smaller radar systems which can be implemented on a single chip, he opens up fully new applications for his customers, such as autonomous driving or smartphones equipped with radar sensors.
