Custom MMIC To Present On Ka-Band Pulsed GaN Power Amplifier
CTO Paul Blount to speak at 2016 IEEE Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium
Custom MMIC's president and CTO Paul Blount will be presenting at the 2016 IEEE Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium (CSICS) on October 26th with a talk entitled, "˜A High Efficiency, Ka-Band Pulsed Gallium Nitride Power Amplifier for Radar Applications.'
Paul Blount founded Custom MMIC in 2006 and has served as its president and CTO since its inception. He has been instrumental in the creation of six MMIC product lines - amplifiers, switches, mixers, attenuators, phase shifters, and multipliers. In 2011, he was awarded the Army Achievement Award for his work in lowering the power dissipation of low noise amplifiers in phased array systems by an order of magnitude.
During his presentation, Blount will discuss the GaN process overview, circuit design, as well as measured results and production test data of a 6 watt, 35 GHz power amplifier in Room 3 of the Doubletree by Hilton in Austin, Texas at 4:10 p.m.
From its origins in 1978 as an international gathering for distinguished experts to present their latest results in GaAs IC technology and Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit design, the CSICS symposium now embraces GaN, InP, SiGe, nanoscale CMOS, and many other emerging technologies.

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
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.
