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.
