Established in 2001, Wireless Communication Laboratory is a research oriented laboratory specializing in the investigation of basic RF/MW/monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) components of wireless communications as well as innovative applications. There are five main researches focuses and they are

  1. Miniaturization techniques for guided and radiated wave components;
  2. Novel pattern ground structure and its applications;
  3. Non-destructive material analysis using RF/MW;
  4. Novel phase lock loop techniques;
  5. RFIC for UV flame sensing and its fire safety applications

Besides, Wireless Communication Laboratory supports the professional wireless communication services for local government and innovative wireless applications for industries. These services include radiation safety measurement and survey and; evaluation of WLAN usage and security for example whilst the innovative applications consist of vessel monitoring using GPS/GSM/GIS, Wireless power transmission and so forth.

Microwave Office
Microwave Office is the complete linear and nonlinear solution for microwave hybrid, module and MMIC design. It includes linear, harmonic-balance, and time-domain simulation, in a single integrated environment that also features EM simulation and physical layout.
IE3D is a full-wave, method-of-moments based electromagnetic simulator solving the current distribution on 3D and multilayer structures of general shape. It has been widely used in the design of MMICs, RFICs, LTCC circuits, microwave/millimeter-wave circuits, IC interconnects and packages, HTS circuits, patch antennas, wire antennas, and other RF/wireless antennas.
XFDTD is a full wave 3D electromagnetic solver based on the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method. Applications include microwave, RF, antennas, scattering, biological EM, photonics, packaging, EMC, and specialized materials.
Complete IC design platform from function verification to physical layout for digital, analog and mixed-signal IC design.
