Technische Universität Dresden

Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) was founded in 1828 and is among Germany's oldest and most renowned universities of technology. The TUD is the largest university in the region, with more than 35,000 students and 4,500 employees, including about 600 professors. The Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems at TUD was founded in September 1994 by an endowment of the former Mannesmann Mobilfunk GmbH, Düsseldorf, Germany now Vodafone). Since its foundation in 1994, the chair has published more than 500 research papers and filed more than 40 patents. Currently, more than 30 Ph.D. students are working at the Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems, involved in teaching as well as project work.

The focus of the chair lies in the area of physical layer systems research, with a special emphasis on wireless radio network problems, wireless modems and IC implementation architectures. Of particular interest are problems and solutions that are found in a trade-off between these focus areas. The research on energy-efficiency improvements at Vodafone Chair is focusing on two areas: System level/network aspects and C Hardware Architectures/ device aspects.

The team led by Prof. Gerhard Fettweis is currently involved in two major and internationally recognized initiatives on green communications: The EARTH-project on European level and Cool Silicon with a more regional focus on the Federal State of Saxony.
