Time Duration: 9:00am to 5:00pm
Location: Bangalore
Venue: To be announced

Course Description

This 5-Day workshop addresses the following key areas: Practical hands on how to RF system design and simulation using ADS”, Introduction to Modern wireless communication systems, Linear circuit design covering LNA and Filter, Non-linear circuit design covering RF Power Amplifier using LDMOS and GaN Transistors in CW / Pulse mode operation and High efficiency / Broadband Doherty PA.

RF system design to cover Analog and digital modulation schemes, Architectures, Multiple Access methods, TDD and FDD schemes, System-level specifications , transmitter and receiver parameters, analog and digital functional blocks, RF system architecture examples. Critical block-level specifications and impairments (e.g. noise, P1dB, IIP3, IIP2, gain, bandwidth, phase noise and spurs), system level performance metrics (e.g. BER, EVM, modulation type, sensitivity and selectivity)

Laptop with ADS / SystemVue software installed will be required for each participant for hands on session. Temporary licenses will be issued in advance to each participant.
