mmWave 5G Phased Array and Beamforming System Design

Date: Thursday, September 28, 2017

Time: 1:00 PM ET \ 10:00 AM PT \ 10:30 PM IST

Beamforming phased array systems are becoming essential in 5G and next generation communications, especially in mmWave frequency bands. This webcast introduces advanced modeling and simulation approaches for various beamforming techniques. We will demonstrate phased array system design while using practical phased arrays in working, system-level beamforming scenarios. The webcast includes a live software demo with typical configurations, weightings, and impairments that affect beam-level performance (such as nonlinearities, coupling, and element variations). We then show how to apply the arrays in communications link applications such as Verizon pre-5G system and 3GPP NR

Thermal Effects, Power Integrity and Your PCB

Keysight Technologies has scheduled a free 1-hour webcast on Thermal Analysis of the PCB and its impact on Power Integrity performance.

WHY THIS WEBCAST IS IMPORTANT

Did you know that in addition to validating the electrical performance of the power integrity on your PCB, it is also crucial to perform a thermal validation as well? This webcast introduces the thermal aspects of power integrity in your PCB designs and why it is critical to consider them. To better understand a design’s power integrity from the thermal viewpoint, it provides a theoretical background for heat transfer and overview of the thermal analysis technologies. Finally, the webcast demonstrates the importance of performing thermal analysis on PCB designs by showing a practical PCB design example.

Webinar: Tolerance Analysis for Planar Microwave Circuits

Webinar: Tolerance Analysis for Planar Microwave Circuits on December 3 at 7 a.m. or 10 a.m. PT (India time: 8.30pm or 11.30pm)

Planar filters and antennas offer the tightest integration and lowest total cost in the majority of integrated RF/Microwave systems. However, tolerance variations in materials, processing, enclosure and environment are often not properly analyzed leading to circuit or system designs that either do not consistently meet specs or are unnecessarily over-spec’d and costly. This is because the task of performing exhaustive tolerance analysis can be intimidating and you may not know where to begin. This presentation provides a framework for automating this process and is illustrated with a 29GHz microstrip filter. The resulting downloadable template provides a robust starting point for you to test your designs against suspected sources of variation and determine which ones have the strongest influence. This methodology makes "build vs. buy" and material/process selection more deterministic and efficient.

Who Should Attend:

RF/Microwave circuit and system board level engineers, planar antenna designers, RF/Microwave system engineers, engineering managers

Webinar News

Date: 22nd May 2012

Time: 11am – 12pm (IST, GMT+5.30)

Abstract: GaN devices are gaining rapid popularity for Power Amplifier design applications and one of the reasons is that GaN devices provides more reliability as compared to other competing technologies. During the webinar we shall present a design case study using RFMD GaN device & discuss a step by step procedure to design GaN PAs using ADS 2011. We shall also discuss various Load Pull techniques in detailed manner which is a very important step in designing Power Amplifiers.

Date: 19th June 2012

Topic: EM based designs using Agilent ADS and EMPro 2011

Time: 11am – 12pm (IST, GMT+5.30)

Abstract: EM simulations are inherent part of high frequency design applications. Enhancements made in ADS2011 release makes EM simulations pretty easy so that every RF designer can feel comfortable to use the power and accuracy of EM simulations in their RF designs. Also, fully integrated Finite Element Method (FEM) simulator in ADS2011 is very useful to simulate non-planar structures/assemblies without having the need to leave ADS environment and paves the way to perform Circuit/Planar EM/3D EM co-simulation with great ease. Also for certain type of complicated assemblies ADS and EMPro integration can be used pretty effectively which offer full design inter-operability without indulging into complex and time consuming process of doing file transfer between the tools etc.

During the course of webinar we shall present tips and tricks for successful and accurate EM simulations using Method of Moments and FEM simulators in ADS2011 and also demonstrate ADS-EMPro link for complex 3D structures.

Date: 24th July 2012

Topic: RF System Architecture & Budget Analysis using Agilent SystemVue

Time: 11am – 12pm (IST, GMT+5.30)

Abstract: Accurate RF System Architecture analysis is the first key step towards 1st pass design success for RF Systems. Agilent SystemVue provides all the key features to perform RF Architecture and System Budget analysis with great ease.

During the course of the webinar we shall discuss the key challenges faced by RF system designers and showcase how Agilent SystemVue handles such complicated analysis with great ease of use. We shall also discuss how to perform Digital/DSP and RF system co-simulation and tackle various potential RF & DSP integration issues so that we can troubleshoot them early in design cycle.
