- Dr. Steve C. Cripps’ Keynote: Clipping Harmonic Contours-A New RF PA Design Tool
- Source Pull and Device Performance.
- Polyharmonic Distortion (EPHD) Transistor Models.
- Load Pull.
- High-Power, High-Frequency Applications.
- Amplifier Design and Advanced Synthesis.
Hands-on Workshop –6th October:
‘From Bits to Waves: Building a Modern Digital Radio in One Day’ - In this interactive workshop it features the use of NI AWR software, participants will learn the basic theory of modern digital radios, as well as the RF circuits and systems used to build them.
- Participants need only a basic background in RF circuits, such as S-parameters and basic transmission line theory.
- Example designs will be available to ensure that everyone, from the most advanced RF designer to the student, will be successful.
- Bring only your laptop. All other materials and equipment (software and PCB fabrication-in-a-bag) will be provided.
