Video recording of my presentation (Designing Phased Array Systems) during Keysight A/D Symposium 2017 (Bangalore stop), is now live on my YouTube channel:
Tutorial video mentioned in the presentation can be found here (look for video no. 33): http://www.keysight.com/find/eesof-how-to-videos
I found an article written by an unknown author which can be very helpful to MMIC and all RF/uWave designers in general.
Have a look here:
Kappa™ 438 Laminates
Kappa 438 thermoset laminates were developed for wireless circuit designers looking for a better performing and more reliable alternative to FR-4 laminates. These laminates were designed using a glass reinforced hydrocarbon ceramic system that offers superior high frequency performance and low cost circuit fabrication resulting in a low loss material which can be fabricated using standard epoxy/glass (FR-4) processes.
Kappa 438 laminates have the UL 94 V-0 flame retardant rating and are lead free solder process compatible, and offer dielectric constants tailored to FR-4 industry standard norms which facilities ease of converting existing FR-4 designs where better electrical performance is needed.

Surely looks promising……Happy Designing….!!!!
On behalf of Keysight Technologies, I would like to invite you to present a technical paper in our upcoming Keysight India EEsof Design Forum 2017.
The dates and locations for the event are as follows.
Bangalore: Tuesday, 11th July 2017 @ Hotel Vivanta by Taj, MG Road, Bengaluru
Hyderabad: Thursday, 13th July 2017 @ Hotel Taj Deccan, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad
Ahmedabad: Saturday, 15th July 2017 @ Hotel Novotel, Ahmedabad
The Keysight India EEsof Design Forum is an annual event where users come together to share their ideas and success, discuss problems and interact with application consultants from Keysight Technologies. Through such Design Forums, it is our sincere hope that together with elite design-engineers like you, we can help build a strong high-frequency design community in India.
I sincerely hope that you can participate in our Keysight India EEsof Design Forum 2017 and contribute through your presentation.

For more information:
I will be conducting this Webinar on 6th April at 11.00am – 12.30pm (IST). Look forward for your participation.
Keysight Technologies is offering free webinar on 6th April 2017, specifically designed for Signal and Power Integrity Engineers trying to accurately model their printed circuit boards (PCBs), a task that is now more challenging given today’s ever increasing data rates. During the webinar, attendees will learn about SIPro (Signal Integrity Professional) and PIPro (Power Integrity Professional) tools from Keysight Technologies.
SIPro and PIPro provide a cohesive workflow within ADS for signal integrity and power integrity applications in high speed digital board design. Specific use cases will be demonstrated, which will reveal the powerful capabilities of SIPro & PIPro.
Topics to be covered:
– Challenges of increasing speeds & complexity
– Why you need a Channel Simulator
– S Parameters for frequency and time domain data mining
– EM simulation for Signal integrity
– Fast parallel bus DDR4 simulations
– How to Analyze 100 GbE – KP PAM4 vs NRZ
– Power Integrity basics
– Power Integrity IR Drop
Location: At Your PC

In PCB designs, vias are virtually everywhere and come in a wide variety of types – signal, ground, thermal, blind, etc. No matter how the vias are classified, it is important to note that they play an important role in the PCB. This is especially true in high-speed designs. This webcast discusses the basics of high-speed PCB via design.
