Spotlight On RF/Microwave Software & Design
A Comparative Review Of GaN, LDMOS, And GaAs For RF And Microwave Applications

Gallium nitride (GaN) is widely viewed as a transformative technology which has enabled smaller, lighter, and more reliable RF/microwave devices than its predecessors. However, there are trade-offs to consider when selecting which technology to use for a particular application. 

RF To mmWave Design For Systems

RF-enabled next-generation communication systems and connected devices are differentiated by their performance, size, and cost. Traditionally, custom proprietary IC designs, leveraging the latest advanced-node technology, were developed to meet these product requirements.

From EDA To Hardware Implementation

Linking EDA design simulation and hardware testing can enable an easy, straightforward process flow and first-pass design.
