About us

With 80.000 talents working in 68 countries, we are one of the biggest high-tech employers in the field of safety and security. In the Netherlands, where 2000 employees are based, we are located in four cities: Huizen, Delft, Eindhoven and Hengelo (HQ). Together with an extensive ecosystem of knowledge partners, customers and suppliers, we work on radars for naval vessels, cyber security solutions, transportation systems, communication equipment for land forces, cryogenic cooling solutions, research & development for radar tech (in collaboration with TU Delft).

Thales Nederland BV (TNL) develops and produces radar systems. Within the Technical Unit RF radar front-ends are developed. This includes antennas, transmitters, signal generators and receivers and FPGA programming and embedded software. Besides product development, innovative technology studies are carried out in this field.

About the assignment

Switched Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) are used to power the receiver and transmitter electronics in the radar RF front-end.

In a previous assignment a labview application has been developed for validating the performance of the SMPS in an automated test setup. This reduces overall test time and maximizes the information obtained during the proto/qualification testing. Easy adapting for multiple SMPS configuration is already implemented, based on the equipment available in the lab. Now further extension of the program is needed.

Foreseen activities are:

  • Extension of the LabVIEW application, with additional automated measurements,
  • Verification and debugging of the LabVIEW application on an existing SMPS design,
  • Report the activities, design procedure and results in a detailed report with manual.
