The expansion in the mobile communications sector is progressing steadily. Many metrological challenges are associated with the approval procedures for new cell sites and operation frequencies. The primary objective of is to comply with the legally specified emissions. In order to nevertheless ensure excellent network coverage, the propagation characteristics in the vicinity of the cell and the structural attenuation values of the site must be precisely [...]

Radar systems not only allow the measurement of speeds and distances, but can also be used for the contactless measurement of various parameters of the target. These include, for example, the layer thickness of workpieces and foils, but also the continuous monitoring of vibrations of machines in operation. This allows deviations from normal operation to be detected at an early stage to avoid outages and damages. […]

Due to the decreasing costs and size of radio frequency (RF) components, radar systems have become very attractive for several applications in many different fields. Moreover, combining high resolution, low power consumption and operation in harsh environments makes them outperform conventional sensors. In this article, a radar system is presented that is developed with the low power and ultra broadband [...]

What we stand for

An increasing number of sensor and communication technologies rely on high-frequency systems for non-contact measurements or data transmission via radio. We are convinced that there are still countless applications in which high-frequency technology or high-frequency sensor technology offers a significant improvement on the current state of the art. Sykno was born from the idea of making […]
