Your tasks

Output multiplexers are used as part of the satellite load to group the high-power signals of individual channels on a common busbar so that they can be radiated with the help of the transmitting antenna. An output multiplexer for the transmission of high-power satellite signals usually consists of a plurality of channel filters, which are connected to a hollow-conductor collecting rail. The busbar consists of waveguide T-branches and waveguide lines.

  • Improving the synthesis of filters with waveguide T-branches
  • Introduction of additional T-branches with variable lengths along the busbar
  • Java-based integration in the synthesis process for output multiplexers
  • Checking the concept of a hardware setup
  • Outline of the work:
    • Theory (HF-technique) approx. 30%
    • Programming (Java) approx. 50%
    • Hardware approx. 20%


Your qualification

  • Matriculated student in the field of electrical engineering, information technology, physics or comparable
  • Knowledge in programming with Java
  • Fun in theoretical and practical work
  • Commitment, independent work and teamwork are self-evident
