ESoA course on Industrial Antenna Design for radar and 5G at IMST, April 17th to 21st 2023

this is the first call for the European School of Antennas (ESoA) course on Industrial Antenna Design which will be held in Kamp-Lintort at IMST, Germany from April 17th to 21st 2023.

Focus of the course:

The design of antennas for commercial applications like mobile phones, laptop computers, WLAN mobile devices and antennas for automotive communication and 5G systems is driven by many more issues in addition to the antenna concept. In such industrial projects the antenna design is one part in the whole development chain. Therefore, the antenna designer has to collaborate with teams from many other disciplines like mechanical design, compliance testing, etc. in order to achieve a adequate product. During the design of the product, the antenna designer should be able to anticipate the influence of possible changes in product specifications and being flexible to adapt the antenna concept to the next design step. Furthermore, the designer has to ensure that the design is reliable and cost efficient. As last point the designer has to present the solution to the customer.

This course on "Industrial Antenna Design" aims to prepare the participants for this kind of work. The course will cover lectures, practical work and team-based project work using state of the art design tools and applications.

This year’s edition of the "Industrial Antenna Design" course will focus on the design of an antenna module for joint communication and sensing using modern beamforming ICs.

A rough outline of the course:

Industrial antenna design fundamentals (lectures):

  • General issues of industrial antenna design
  • Challenges in automotive antenna design
  • Array antenna design for 5G/6G
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Efficient EM design

The project (Practical Assignment & Project work):

  • Design of an array antenna module based on project specifications
  • Work in a project team on a project schedule
  • Design and build prototypes according to different phases of the product
  • Measure the performance of your own antenna prototype
