Research & Development

The high frequency engineering group belongs to the Institute Industrial IT - inIT of Technische Hochschule OWL. It concentrates mainly on the development of wire-based and wireless communication systems with an emphasis on the physical layer of the transport model.

  • Coexistence Improvement of industrial wireless technologies with cognitive means.
  • Characterization, simulation, and emulation of radio channels
  • Customer specific developments of radio communication systems
    covering the whole range from the antenna up to the digital interface.
    Approaches based on WLAN, Bluetooth, ZigNee, NanoNet.
  • Antenna developments and device integration.
  • Investigation of device emission and radiation hazard of radio waves
  • Radio network planning
