About us

The Wireless Communications Research Group was established in 1998 to investigate new lines of research that can be transferred to industry. Our research on wireless communications is a recognised world leader in the advanced design of circuits and subsystems from RF through Microwave to Millimetre-wave frequencies for 4G, and 5G wireless communications, WLAN, WPAN, UltraWideBand (UWB), wireless sensors, Internet-of-Things (IoT), M2M and biomedical applications.
