EDM-Lab - Laboratory of Electronic Design and Measurement for RF and Industrial Applications


 The Laboratory of EDM group is dedicated to the electronic circuits assembly, test, and measurement. Many of the instruments are dedicated to RF and microwave applications, making it a fully equipped microwave laboratory equipped with VNAs, signal synthesizers and analyzers. Moreover, power applications at lower frequencies down to DC are covered with the presence of oscilloscopes, sensors, and thermal conditioning. In more detail,  the laboratory equipment includes:

  • Vector Network Analyzers up to 110 GHz; Vector Signal Generation and Analysis up to 6 GHz; Spectrum Analyzer up to 26.5 GHz; 
  • Oscilloscopes (up to 2.5 GHz of analog BW and 20 GSa/sec of max sample rate), and other digitizers boards; Signal Synthesizers (CW up to 50 GHz) and Arbitrary Waveform/Function Generator (up to 2 GSa/s); 
  • Thermally-controlled probe station; power DC supplies and bias systems; microwave slide screw tuners up to 50 GHz; microwave lab components: RF amplifiers, mixers, couplers, calibration kits, test fixtures, and filters; 
  • Clean Room (10.000 class, 22 sq), for RF characterization and manufacturing processes to be carried out in clean environment (e.g. bonding, brazing), test-board assembly room, drilling and milling machine for PCB manufacturing, through-hole plating, and hybrid integrated circuit design; 
  • CAD Room for final projects and teaching support to courses; 
  • Software Tools for circuit and electromagnetic simulations: Keysight Advanced Design System, Microwave Office, LabView, Matlab, MultiSIM, Linear Technology LTspice, Sonnet, Keysight Momentum, Cadence OrCAD.
