Custom MMIC Chief Scientist To Speak At EDI CON USA

Charles J. Trantanella to talk about using GaN substrates in mixer topologies

Charles J. Trantanella, chief scientist at Custom MMIC, a US developer of monolithic microwave integrated circuits, will be presenting at EDI CON USA 2016 on September 22nd.

His talk 'Reaching New Heights in Mixer Linearity with GaN MMIC Technology' will cover implementation of GaN substrates in various mixer topologies as well as showing breakthroughs in linearity for these topologies including Cold FET, Balanced Diode and Single-Ended FET.

It will take place in at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts.

With over half a dozen technical articles in trade publications including Microwave Journal, Microwave Product Digest, and the conference proceedings of the International Microwave Symposium, Trantanella has championed a number of high value design contracts including Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grants from US governmental agencies.

He has helped generate over 120 custom and commercial products including digital phase shifters, switches, mixers, and frequency doublers. Trantanella has over 22 years of MMIC design experience, during which he has pioneered the use of spiral baluns in double balanced mixers as well as passive frequency doublers, thereby creating two of the most successful product lines in the MMIC industry.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
