Geplaatst op: 31-10-2019 | Solliciteren voor: 02-01-2020

ASTRON is the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy. Its mission is to make discoveries in radio astronomy happen, via the development of novel and innovative technologies, the operation of world-class radio astronomy facilities, and the pursuit of fundamental astronomical research.

The ASTRON Research & Development division is responsible for the technical program. The program focuses on innovative instruments for existing telescopes as well as on developing technologies for future observing facilities.

The Radio Group develops and designs phased array antenna systems for new radio telescopes. Key technology areas are: Modeling and design of very wideband antenna arrays, design and characterization of RF blocks such as low-noise amplifiers (LNA’s), beamforming networks, and development of new radio telescope concepts.

General description of the area for the assignment:

  • Antenna development
  • 3D – prototyping of new antenna concepts
  • RF circuit design such as filters, differential amplifiers and beamformer circuits
  • RF over fiber, Optical beamforming
  • Automation of RF measurements

You will broaden your view on RF technology and instrument development. During your project work, and having a hands-on experience you will learn and experience a lot.

We are looking for a motivated learner having:

  • HBO - electronics 3rd, 4th year or,
  • TU – (micro) electronics, (Space) system engineering
