Master Thesis Student for the topic »Design of an Antenna Array for 5G Communication«
Fraunhofer IZM Berlin
Erlangen, Germany
vor 4 Tg.

One of the key innovation factors of fifth generation communication ( 5G ) is the extension to millimeter wave (mm-waves) frequency region in order to meet the demand for exponentially increasing data rates.

However, steerable high gain antennas are required to overcome the increased path loss at mm-waves and to ensure exact beam alignment between communication partners.

In this work a steerable antenna array for base station application has to be designed in order to enable possible illumination of one 90 -sector with an overlapping beam scheme.

For the array elements excitation with variable phases and amplitudes dedicated chips are provided that need to be wired / connected properly.

The scope of this work includes :

  • Literature research in phased array design and mm-wave 5G communication
  • Antenna element design for 26.5 -29.5 GHz
  • Antenna array design and layout (including beam-steering scheme)
  • Implementation and measurement of antenna array in anechoic chamber
  • The thesis can be written in English or German.
