Organization profile

Introduction / mission

We are creating a coherent, integrated approach to wireless systems, from the propagation of radio waves up to and including optical and wireless access networks. Our goal is to push boundaries and explore new applications of wireless technology.

Highlighted phrase

Multidisciplinary, application-oriented research into wireless technologies

Organisational profile

The CWTe is a collaboration of five research groups of the Electrical Engineering department of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e): Electromagnetics (EM), Integrated Circuits (IC), Signal Processing Systems (SPS), Electronic Systems (ES) and Electro-optical Communication (ECO). We focus on four programs: Ultra-High Data-Rate Systems, Ultra-Low Power and Internet-of-Things Communication, Terahertz Technology, and Radio Astronomy.

Together, these programs cover a range of topics such as antenna design, wireless power transfer, data conversion and RF circuit design, signal processing, communications baseband algorithms, and optical and wireless access network design.

We continuously develop a vision for each of our programs, their applications and supporting technologies. Our horizon extends, at this moment, to 2028. It includes a regularly updated roadmap of the enabling technologies that will be needed. Based on this, we define the research direction and identify the areas where collaboration with other disciplines and partners will be required.

The Ultra-High Data-Rate Systems program covers network architectures and system design for high-speed, high-capacity wireless communications. We aim at solutions for pushing data rates toward terabits per second. The Ultra-Low Power and Internet-of-Things Communication program focuses on the spectrum and energy efficiency of the IoT, such as ultra-low-power circuitry and protocols. Our goal is to develop enabling techniques for massive and dependable energy-efficient communication networks. The Terahertz Technology program is working on the next step to realize miniaturized and affordable terahertz systems. It will be these systems that will bring the wealth of terahertz applications from the laboratory to the real world where companies, medical centers and consumers will profit from the special detection and imaging properties of this frequency range. Our Radio Astronomy program focuses on designing the next generation of radio telescopes. The universe has never been properly mapped at low frequencies (below 30 MHz), and this research contributes to a space-based radio telescope with the goal to look deeper into space.
