Member of research group of METLAB - Laboratory of precision electrical measurements (only in Czech) 

Research interests

Metrology and high accuracy measurement of electrical quantities

  • Precision impedance measurements in the LF (DC up to a few kHz) and HF Range (around 1 MHz and higher)
  • Coaxial bridges for impedance measurement and comparison
  • Calibration of impedance standards in QHE based measurement system
  • Development and realisation of special electronic equipments for impedance calibration

Digital signal processing - implementation of various DSP algorithms on different HW platforms:

  • FPGA (Intel Altera, Xilinx)
  • Digital signal processors (Analog Devices ADSP 21XX, ADSP BF 548)
  • ARM processors(STM32Fxx family)
