An Insider's Look At The IMS2012 Technical Program
By Paul Kruczkowski, editor
To get some insight on what to expect from the Microwave Week technical program, I contacted Raafat Mansour, the technical chair of IMS2012. We discussed the record number of papers submitted this year, the hot technologies that will be represented in the technical program, and some new and interesting elements you should definitely check out.

RF Globalnet's IMS2012 Pre-Show Newsletter: Part 2

This newsletter continues our pre-show coverage of the IMS2012 International Microwave Symposium, taking place from June 17 to 22 in Montréal. Here you will find just some of the technologies and products being featured this year, in addition to booth numbers and show news. Remember, if you are attending the show, stop by and visit us at booth 3113 where you can register to WIN THE NEW iPad in RF Globalnet's IMS2012 giveaway. See you in Montréal.

Must-See Products At IMS2012

Wideband, Hybrid Power Amplifier Modules
AR's new line of wideband, hybrid power amplifier modules (HPMs) cover the 4- to 18-GHz frequency range; and are the result of combining Microelectronic technology with the latest developments in thin-film substrates. These hybrid modules require a single DC voltage source and are 50-ohm cascadable building blocks with output powers up to 5 watts.
