Custom MMIC To Speak At EDI-Con 2017 About Phase Noise


Paul Blount will provide insights on how additive phase noise has become an increasing challenge for RF/microwave system designers

Custom MMIC has announced that president and CTO, Paul Blount, will be delivering a presentation at the Electronic Design Innovation Conference & Exhibition (EDI CON) 2017 in Boston, Massachusetts titled 'Conquering Phase Noise in Radar and Communication Systems'. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, September 13th in room 108 from 10:20 - 10:50.

Blount, also a lead engineer with Custom MMIC, will provide insights on how additive phase noise has become an increasing challenge for many RF/microwave system designers. He will explain how various components in a signal chain outside of the oscillator, can contribute to phase noise, and how different semiconductor technologies impact a components phase noise.

He will share details on how key component selections can be made to optimise the phase noise performance of a system and will introduce attendees to a new line of low phase noise amplifiers, or LPNAs, being developed by Custom MMIC.

These new amplifiers are used in solving radar range and velocity resolution challenges, along with limiting bit-error rate and throughput reductions in high-speed wireless communications.

His presentation will complement a technical brief, available from Custom MMIC's website, "Addressing Phase Noise Challenges in Radar and Communication Systems."

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.
