Konrath was born in Niedersohren/Germany in April 1958. He
received the Diplom degree in electrical engineering at the
University of Applied Siences in Koblenz, Germany, in 1981.
his studies he worked on high power amplifiers in the VHF
September 1981 he joined AEG Telefunken AG (later Bosch
Communications GmbH and Ericsson GmbH). There he worked in the testing area of
manufacturing of Radio Link Systems and subcircuits. In 1983
he joined the Microwave Oscillators Lab., a department of
Radio Relay Systems Product Group. His main area of research
has been the development of microwave oscillators, sampling
phase detectors as well as complete PLL-VCO-modules for
digital radio systems. Special oscillator requirements for
digital transmission have been a focal point of interest.
he received the
Award of The EuMC Microwave Prize for his work “Fully
Integrated 18-20 GHz Phaselocked DRO Signal Source For Digital
Radio Systems Using Chip And Wire Technology“ at the
European Microwave Conference.
Since 1993 he developed complete hybrid microwave transceivers and
gallium arsenide VCO-MMICs in the 18-26GHz frequency range. In
1996 he started to realize the vision of planar ring
resonators as replacement for DROs in digital radio systems
together with Dr. Martin Schallner.
For their related publication with the title "Fully Automatic
Laser-Adjustable Planar Ring Resonators as Replacement for
Dielectric Resonators" both received the MIOP Microwave
Prize in 2001.
For their innovative research & development work on this field both
received the EEEfCOM Innovation Prize within the section large
industry in 2002.
Currently Willibald Konrath works in the "Automated Microwave
Factory" team which develops sophisticated assembly & test processes
for microwave hybrids on highly automated inline assembly
robots. TESAT offers this "Microwave Hybrid Manufacturing
Services" to external customers since 01.01.2009. By May
of 2021 the factory production counter exceeded 100.000
1st of October 2021 Willibald Konrath will be a private
individual enjoying life riding his E-bike.
