Laboratory

The Millimeter-Wave Electronics Group has measurement capabilities from the device/chip-level to the antenna and system levels. Test infrastructure includes vector network analyzers, spectrum analyzers, digital sampling oscilloscopes and more.  The antenna anechoic chamber is equipped to carry out measurements to 40 GHz. We use state-of-the-art computer-aided design tools for simulation of circuits (ADS, Cadence, Mentor Graphics) and electromagnetic structures (Ansys HFSS).  CMOS, silicon  germanium BiCMOS and gallium nitride HFET integrated circuits are fabricated at various foundries around the world through multi-project wafer (MPW) runs. Planar antennas and passive circuits are fabricated in-house using an LPKF numerically-controlled PCB milling machine and waveguide antennas are fabricated at the McLaughlin machine shop at Queen's.


Antenna Testing Service

We offer antenna measurement services to third-parties on a contract basis.  Please direct inquiries about our chamber's measurement capabilities and availability to saavedra@queensu.ca
