Welcome to the Centre for Integrated RF Engineering

The Centre for Integrated RF Engineering (CIRFE) was conceived through the establishment of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Industrial Research Chair on Radio Frequency (RF) Engineering in 2000 at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of Waterloo.

CIRFE has a research group consisting of over 25 PhD and MASc graduate students, research engineers, and postdoctoral fellows. It houses a state-of-the-art RF test and characterization laboratory, and a clean room.
