IMS 2010 MicroApps: Diversity in Microwaves
The Microwave Application Seminars (MicroApps)—scheduled for the Anaheim Convention Center, May 25-27, 2010, as part of IEEE-IMS/MTT-S—are a series of concise technical presentations given by exhibitors that are distinct and separate yet complementary to the IEEE technical sessions.
MicroApps are engineering topics of interest to the microwave community and cover new products, noteworthy state-of-the-art components, emerging technologies, and novel manufacturing and design techniques that incorporate the exhibitor’s products and technologies in an application-centric setting.
This year’s program is the most successful yet, offering more than 57 presentations on a diverse range of topics that include hardware, software and components, and come from more than 30 different firms from Germany and Switzerland to Japan and Australia as well as the United States. The papers have been categorized into seven areas of interest this year to allow for both breadth and depth of coverage in and around any one topic:
- high power
- software and signal processing (signal integrity, electromagnetics and amplifier)
- component modeling
- phase noise
- wide bandwidth
- test equipment and measurements
This year, Wednesday admission to the exhibit floor and also to the MicroApps Symposium is free. This means even more can take advantage of the special talks that day, which include a keynote presentation, “X-parameters: The Emerging Paradigm for Interoperable Characterization, Modeling and Design of Nonlinear Microwave and RF Components and Systems” by Dr. David Root of Agilent Technologies Inc. Attendees can also grab a glass of wine Wednesday evening at the industry-hosted reception and enjoy the talk by well-known industry expert Dr. James Rautio titled, “A Tutorial on Silicon Spiral Inductor Ground Return Effects on RFIC Design.”
MicroApps sessions are open to everyone, thanks to sponsorship by Agilent Technologies. The MicroApps theatre is conveniently located in the midst of the exhibits at Booth 524. The complete and up-to-date MicroApps symposium schedule can be found in the IMS Program Book or online at the IMS2010.org website. A MicroApps CD of all the presentations will be available for free to all, and those who are unable to attend in person will be able to view the virtual presentations online at the IEEE website.
Come to MicroApps, learn and enjoy. We look forward to seeing you at Booth 524 during the week of May 25th.
