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
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.

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….!!!!
