Our Exciting Opportunity

Embedded Power at Lindholmen develops Power products for most of the Ericsson ICT product portfolio including 5G. By writing detailed specifications, Embedded Power uses external suppliers for design and manufacturing (Black Box development) of custom-made power solutions. The range of products goes from AC and/or DC driven converters/inverters, power distribution units to Lithium battery products and optimized chargers for those. The products are intended for global use and operate from 100 W to power systems up to 20 kW. The power systems are the engine of the telecom infrastructure and a prerequisite for the Networked Society.


Goal with master thesis

To increase mobility and coverage for 5G and beyond the use of Airborne Radio Base Stations is explored. The deployment scenarios are completely new for Mobile Telecom and the traditional Telecom Industry. Reuse or new design of electronics at high altitude (few meters to 20km) comes with needs of new design rules and understanding of how regulations apply.


Following should be covered in the Master Thesis

  1. Explore the applicable regulatory requirements to certify a product for Airborne use
  2. Compared to existing power HW design solutions; what are needed changes to consider (clearances, creepages, component choices, etc.)
  3. Power Architecture. What type of Power Supply/Charging alternatives and architectures are expected/used for the airborne alternatives?


Working methods

Theoretical analysis and literature studying. Also measuring on balancing equipment can be considered.



  • Education: Master of Science in Engineering
  • An eager interest in power products/area
  • English skills (fluid), both oral and written needed
