Unik teknologi gör gestkontroll mer exakt
Att kontrollera mobiltelefonen med en enkel handrörelse är den senaste tekniknyheten för mobilanvändare. Men för att ta konceptet med rörelsestyrd teknik från en rolig gimmick till verkligt användbara funktioner krävs mer exakta radarsensorer. Nu...
EU-samarbete sporrar till bättre forskningsresultat
Visst innebär det mycket arbete att koordinera ett stort EU-projekt med många partners, delrapporter och utvärderingar. Men det är värt det, tycker både Margareta Johansson och Lars Erik Wernersson som koordinerar var sitt projekt.

Compensating for the users interaction with their cell phones
All cell phone users know that you sometimes get a better connection by turning in another direction or by keeping the phone a bit from the body. This ?shadowing? is one of the challenges that Jonas Lindstrand addressed in his PhD thesis. Another...
?I have always loved science and these days it has mainly been the science of electronics. What really made me make this choice, a PhD in engineering is a way to maximize your chance, to live anywhere you desire and you also have a great potential to keep working with something you really love. As a PhD-student, I could do research that is very rare in the industry and it also helped me in my development as a person, which I think is the most important?, Jonas Lindstrand says.
?The challenge, how hard it actually was to get some of the circuits to work as intended, and also the complexity of the circuits and their theory. The most interesting to me is the future. We are more or less in one of the forks in the road for wireless communication so far, and it is mainly the release of 5G and together with new higher frequency bands in the mm-wave spectrum. In academia, mm-wave circuits for consumer products have been researched for the last 15-20 years. Now finally a commercialization has started to happen.
?I think that some of the measurement practices I used for impedance tuner is used today, I must add that they might have been used long before I used them, but to my knowledge, I had not seen them before we published them?, Jonas Lindstrand says.
?I will continue to work for a Lund start-up called BeammWave AB, the company mainly works with integrated mm-wave circuits for 5G consumer products, and as a matter of fact, I will dedicate all my office hours with them after the defence of this thesis?, Jonas Lindstrand says.
Workshop in Lund on Connected Systems and Circuit Design

On September 19-20, the annual Lund Connected Systems and Circuit Design Workshop 2019 will be held in Lund. More than 150 participants gather at Grand Hotell and at Campus LTH in Lund to listen to invited speakers and fresh research results in the area.
New for this year is a greater focus on connectivity.
?This event is certainly a highlight for researchers and industry in active in silicon and wireless connectivity. Participants from global industrial players, start-ups, and international researchers will gather for two days in Lund, being the silicon hotspot in Scandinavia?, says the Co-director Joachim Rodrigues, from EIT and one of the organisers.
