High Frequency Devices Group (GDAF)

The main R&D activities of the group are related to radiofrequency (RF) and microwave technologies. Specifically, they focus on linear/non-linear modelling and characterization of microwave active devices and circuits, the design of hybrid and monolithic microwave integrated circuits, and the design of RF circuits for radio communications.
