Humboldt University of Berlin

The Joint Lab facilitates future oriented mutually beneficial cooperation between HU-Berlin and IHP. For the benefit of both institutions their resources and competences are put together. The main research areas pursued in the joint lab are Wireless Broadband Communication Systems, Localization and Ranging as well as Model Based Design.

In the framework of the DFG Priority Program SPP1655, we work together with our partners on the DFG-Project with the acronym "maximumMIMO". The focus of this project is on increasing the spectral efficiency using massive MIMO technology in conjunction with high-resolution phased array antenna topologies. The aim is to achieve a data rate of 100 Gbit/s in a wireless point-to-point connection over a distance of more than 100m.

The BMBF-Project PreLocate successfully finished in summer 2014. At the "Fachtagung KMU-Innovativ" in Berlin in November 2014, the results were presented jointly by the partners InnoSenT GmbH, HU-Berlin and IHP to a large audience. In the project, we developed a demonstrator operating in the 60-GHz-band. The demonstrator allows wireless data transmission at a rate of 5.1 Gb/s and simultaneous distance measurements between two transceivers with a precision of about 1 cm. At the WPNC2014, the demonstrator achieved the "Best Demonstrator Award".


The BMBF-Project proposals PROWILAN, ParSec and Deal were submitted in 2014 in the context of the call on "Reliable wireless Communications in Industry" (Industry 4.0) and all three were positively evaluated. All three new projects have started in the first half of 2015.
