Microwave MMIC Training Workshop

2-Day Hands on Workshop – MMIC Design – PA and LNA

Date:                           29-May-2018 Tuesday & 30-May-2018 Wednesday

Time Duration:            9:00am to 5:00pm

Location:                     IETE, Ganga Nagar, Bellary Road, Bangalore

Course Description

This 2-Day workshop addresses the following key areas: Practical hands on how to “Design of high frequency MMIC LNA and PA with simulation and analysis using ADS and PDKs”, covering LNA using GaAs pHEMT process and Power Amplifier using GaN HEMT process. The design examples can be customised for defence, 5G, wireless Backhaul applications using relevant process technologies.

 

Advanced Design System is the world’s leading electronic design automation software for RF, microwave, and high speed digital applications. In a powerful and easy-to-use interface, ADS pioneers the most innovative and commercially successful technologies, such as X-parameters* and 3D EM simulators, used by leading companies in the wireless communication & networking and aerospace & defense industries. For WiMAX™, LTE, multi-gigabit per second data links, radar, & satellite applications, ADS provides full, standards-based design and verification with Wireless Libraries and circuit-system-EM co-simulation in an integrated platform.

 

Key Benefits of ADS

  • Complete, integrated set of fast, accurate and easy-to-use system, circuit & EM simulators enable first-pass design success in a complete desktop flow
  • Application-specific Design Guides encapsulate years of expertise in an easy-to-use interface
  • ADS is supported exclusively or months earlier than others by leading industry and foundry partners

 

 

 

Laptop with ADS software installed will be required for hands on session.

Temporary ADS licenses will be provided to all

PDKs will be installed in each computer during the training session
