Recent Submissions

  • Singh, Nishant; Stander, Tinus; IEEE International Microwave and RF Conference (2015 : Hyderabad, India) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-12)
    A simulation study of a high-Q resonator in a commercial 130nm SiGe BiCMOS process for E-band frequencies is presented. The resonator is a planar quarter-wave microstrip resonator that uses a HBT based negative resistance ...
  • Stander, Tinus; IEEE International Microwave and RF Conference (2015 : Hyderabad, India) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-12)
    On-chip EM modeling at mm-wave frequencies requires design methods that incorporate the layout and verification macros of IC EDA tools with parameterized EM CAD. We propose a novel, flexible design flow for 3D EM modeling ...
  • Sinha, Saurabh; Stander, Tinus; International Conference on Radioelektronika, (23rd : 2013 : Pardubice, Czech Republic) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-04)
    Gigahertz transverse electromagnetic (GTEM) cells are used extensively in industry for testing the impact of defined E-fields on devices sensitive to electromagnetic interference. Compared to anechoic chambers, GTEM ...
  • Osuch, P.J.; Stander, Tinus; International Conference on Actual Problems of Electron Devices Engineering (APEDE) (2014 : Saratov, Russia) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2014)
    A design method for distributed element on-chip post-production tunable group delay equalising networks is presented. It is shown that a number of adjustable Darlington C-sections can be used to equalise the group delay ...
  • Smith, James N.; Stander, Tinus; International Conference on Actual Problems of Electron Devices Engineering (APEDE) (2014 : Saratov, Russia) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2014)
    A tapered ridge transition between coplanar waveguide and substrate-integrated waveguide is presented. The taper is implemented through staircase metallization across 10 layers of conventional RF substrate with sidewall ...
  • Stander, Tinus; International Conference on Actual Problems of Electron Devices Engineering (APEDE), 2014: Saratov (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2014)
    A comparative simulation study of planar 94 GHz resonators in a typical BiCMOS BEOL stack-up is presented, with the effect of chip passivation included. It is shown that Q-factors of between 3 and 15 can be obtained, ...
  • Sinha, Saurabh; Bhana, V.B. (Vishal); Stander, Tinus; International Conference on Radioelektronika, 23rd : 2013 : Pardubice, Czech Republic (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-04)
    A mm-wave BiCMOS back-end metallization switched delay line frequency agile filter is presented. Miniaturization of the delay lines is achieved by using slow-wave propagation modes on shielded CPWs, with a standard ...
  • Sinha, Saurabh; Stander, Tinus; IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) (2013 : San José, California, United States of America) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013)
    The IEEE is currently planning an extensive workforce development (WFD) programme through its volunteer and associated networks. Together with environmental scans, potential learning areas and contributing partners are ...
  • Stander, Tinus; Sinha, Saurabh; International Conference on Radioelektronika (23rd : 2013 : Pardubice, Czech Republic) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013)
    Maximum gain from combining multiple high-power signals is achieved by equalising both the amplitude and phase of the combination. Achieving in-phase and equal amplitude power combining with amplifiers of unequal gain and ...
  • Sinha, Saurabh; Stander, Tinus; Du Preez, Jaco; International Symposium on Electrodynamic and Mechatronic System (SELM) 2013 : Opole-Zawiercie (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-05)
    Microwave heating as a means of inactivating pathogenic micro-organisms in commercially produced food products in sterilization and pasteurization processes is discussed in this paper. The physics of a microwave heating ...
  • Stander, Tinus; IEEE Africon (2015 : Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-09)
    The Ka-band is considered a viable band for future 5G backhaul links. Planar filters in this frequency range have low aspect ratios for substrates thicker than 10 mil, since the required 50 Ω line width becomes comparable ...
  • Stander, Tinus; IEEE Africon (2015 : Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-09)
    With an ever increasing number of broadband applications in sub-Saharan Africa, mm-wave point-to-point networking has the potential to fill a niche in communications network architectures. Widespread adoption of this ...
