Auriga and Delft University Partner on Multi-year Research Project

February 23, 2007

Auriga Measurement Systems LLC announced that it has entered into a multi-year research project with Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. “The cutting-edge work at Delft University in RF characterization/modeling is right in line with our strategic product initiatives.

By engaging with the Delft institute, DIMES, not only will we accelerate our technology, but also give something back to the engineering community,” said Larry Smith, director of measurement systems for Auriga and project manager for this effort. Auriga hopes to have the university’s initial efforts on display at the MTT show in Hawaii this year.

“Auriga is going to be a great partner for us at DIMES,” said Leo de Vreede, associate professor in High Frequency Technology and Components. “We share a common view on application driven RF characterization tools and already in this early stage Auriga has supported us with equipment, software and expertise.

This yields an important acceleration of our research in the exciting area of dedicated measurement and model solutions for the cellular and base station market.

It also enables us to expand our already extensive characterization infrastructure with the newest equipment. Relationships like the one with Auriga are paramount to the DIMES educational program and advancements in leading the technological academic field.”
