  2. Considerations In Choosing The Ideal Semiconductor Vendor For Your 5G Applications
    6/14/2018

    Michael Zeihl, Vice President and General Manager of MACOM, took time out of his afternoon at IMS 2018 to talk to us about choosing the optimal semiconductor vendor for 5G applications. To help avoid costly mistakes and time delays, a vendor should have a wide range of available technologies, deep application knowledge and understanding, and the capability to collaborate at all stages of a product’s production process. Check out the video for more information.

    Have you wondered how you can stand above the rest to be hired at an engineering firm? What qualifications are often overlooked in the interview process? This morning at IMS 2018, Wendy Shu, Vice President at SAGE Millimeter, talked to us in detail about what firms are looking for when hiring new engineers. Check out the video for the top three overlooked qualifications that firms are looking for in candidates.

  5. Challenges In Upgrading TWTs To The Newest Solid-State GaN Technologies
    6/14/2018

    GaN provides opportunities for solutions with wider bandwidth while reducing the need to replace TWT amplifiers with solid-state amplifiers. This afternoon at IMS 2018, Apet Barsegyan from Integra discusses solutions for the challenges in upgrading current TWTs in high-power radar and pulsed applications to the newest solid-state GaN HEMT technologies.

  6. How To Simplify Designs And Maximize SWaP-C With Positive Gain Slope Amplifiers
    6/14/2018

    A common problem in wideband systems is the roll-off of components as they go higher in frequencies. Christopher Gregoire from Custom MMIC discusses how to simplify the designs for these wideband systems, and maximize SWaP-C in all applications with the use of positive gain slope amplifiers.

  7. The Future Of RF System Amplifier Architectures
    6/13/2018

    Engineers are often challenged with the limited linearity associated with high power amplifiers. So where do these issues get solved? Instead of using traditional solutions like adding waveform generators or multiple broadband amplifiers, new super-linear amplifier technologies will be able to reduce harmonics, eliminate the external filter and its insertion loss, and save on time and money. Watch this video with George Bollendorf from Empower RF to learn more about what this new amplifier architecture will look like, as well as the benefits it will offer for many different applications.

  8. Product Video: 1-Port VNA Solutions For Multi-Port Measurements
    6/13/2018

    This afternoon at IMS 2018, Brian Walker from Copper Mountain Technologies illustrates the use of 1-port VNAs to make multi-port measurements for LTE and 5G applications that have multiple antennas and frequencies in one package.

  9. 5G Testing: Challenges And Solutions
    6/13/2018
