This year's event will take place from June 6-8 in Honolulu, HI. As always, it boasts a strong technical program covering the latest research, development, and trends in the RF and microwave industry, along with an exhibition of the newest technologies and services available.
So take a look around this resource center. Plan your trip to IMS2017. Get a small taste of what the event will hold. And, if you go to the show, stop by and visit us at BOOTH 904. We look forward to seeing you in Honolulu!
John Schultz with Compass Technology discusses the applications and capabilities of USB vector network analyzers and “pocket-sized” VNAs from Copper Mountain Technology for materials testing.
James Martin with Diamond Engineering discusses the applications and capabilities of USB vector network analyzers with frequency extenders from Copper Mountain Technology for antenna measurements.
Bryan Walker with JFW discusses what to consider in order to make the best possible choice when selecting which programmable attenuator is right for your lab.
Michel Durr with Leti discusses some of the challenges involved in managing RF and mmWave technology design iteration, as well as some methodologies to address ongoing revisions in the technology.
Gavin Smith with NXP Semiconductors discusses the benefits of 65V transistors for applications requiring higher power systems.
Stephanie Jarno with Huber+Suhner discusses the importance of having the right cable assembly for your VNA application.
Jarrod Marshall with Analog Devices discusses advancements in 28nm converters and how they’ve impacting 5G technology.
Jon Jacocks with Empower RF Systems discusses the traditional radiated immunity test set up and how the use of “smart” amplifier technology can greatly simplify it while reducing cost.
Datasheet comparisons can at times be misleading depending on which testing methods were used, or the environmental conditions in which the testing took place. John Coonrod with Rogers Corporation explains how engineers can cut down on some of the confusion, and also covers the importance of understanding which testing methods were used to collect the data.
Chris Brown with Northrop Grumman Microelectronics discusses some of the challenges in leveraging their expertise in military technology to products for the commercial sector, as well as some of the trends he’s observed at IMS 2017.
Lawrence Wilson with Rohde & Schwarz discusses the importance of output power and signal purity in analog signal generators.
Rob Rowe with AR discusses the current state of solid state amplifier’s pace of technology, and how advancements in higher linearity, reduced harmonics, and higher power are impacting applications involving wireless communications, testing in consumer, aerospace, and automotive applications, and more.
Greg Rogers with Bliley Technologies discusses quartz crystals, their G-sensitivity, and how his company mitigates the effects of vibration on their oscillators.
C.J. Reddy with Altair Engineering discusses some of the unique challenges associated with antenna design in the age of 5G and IoT and what EM simulation software’s potential role is in addressing those challenges.
Don Pavlek with Corry Micronics discusses design considerations for high power RF switches. Watch the video to learn more about peak power, the impact of switching speeds, how the switch is packaged, and more.
Alan Ake with Guerrilla RF explains why engineers should be skeptical when a linear driver or LNA’s datasheet claims to feature unconditional stability.
Stan Oda with Anritsu discusses considerations for selecting a vector network analyzer for production applications.
Andrew Christie with Peregrine Semiconductor spoke with us about what one should consider when developing mmWave 5G solutions for applications involving fixed wireless access and access points for the densification of city areas.
At IMS 2017, Bror Peterson with Qorvo spoke with us about some of the trades that led his company to use GaN for linear FEMs for 5G phased array.
Our final video at IMS 2016 features CPI’s C-Band GaN solid state RF power amplifier module for maritime and defense radars, and high performance weather radars.
Innovation tends to lag in the power amplifier side of the system-upgrade business, and hardware systems designers may not fully understand the potential element of portability is solid state amplifiers. Jon Jacocks with Empower RF spent a few minutes with us on the last day of IMS 2016 to discuss the issue.
