Looking Forward

Greetings friends and colleagues! I hope that you’re enjoying the summer and getting some much deserved rest and relaxation. It seems like ages ago since many of us converged in the desert for the annual IMS. It’s always a hectic and productive week but the weather was surprisingly pleasant for May in Phoenix.

Happy April!

The sun is shining, the snow is melting and the birds are chirping. April is here and the future looks bright and busy. The next few months bring us to events in Paris (Microwaves&RF), Beijing (EDI CON), Atlanta (AUVSI) and finally to Phoenix (IMS). It’s Springtime and that means Showtime.

Showtime

With springtime just around the corner (thankfully), showtime for our industry begins to kick into high gear. Next week finds MWJ at the Satellite show in Washington, DC, IWCE in Las Vegas and IEEE EMC & SI in Santa Clara, CA. Next month brings us to the Microwaves & RF event in Paris, WAMICON in Florida and EDI CON in Beijing. In May, the annual IEEE MTT-S IMS takes place in Phoenix. That’s quite the run of events.

A Blizzard of Activity

It has been a cold and snowy week in New England, but I have had the good fortune to be in warmer climates, missing the blizzard of 2015 and enjoying the mild weather of Phoenix, Ariz. and Santa Clara, Calif. While I was not fortunate enough to get tickets to the Super Bowl, I did have the opportunity to visit the good folks at Rogers Corp. and to do some reconnaissance in Phoenix as the annual IEEE MTT-S IMS event rapidly approaches. The city has added a lot of attractions to the area around the convention center since the last time the event was here and should prove to be an excellent venue for our annual Big Game. Hopefully it will be a little cooler this time around as well. I travelled from Phoenix to Santa Clara for DesignCon, which drew a good crowd and presented some impressive new products and technologies. More on that show later.

Looking Ahead…

I recently had the pleasure of presenting at a Media Day event for a major client. It is a welcome opportunity for any person involved in sales: being able to be face-to-face with a client to present your brand and to discuss ways that your products can help the client to meet their needs.

No Summer Vacation for the RF/Microwave Industry

Summer came in like a lion for the RF/microwave industry and it’s going out with a loud roar. The merger of RFMD and TriQuint and the acquisitions of Hittite Microwave by Analog Devices and Aeroflex by Cobham made for big headlines back in June. The recent announcements of Murata’s purchase of Peregrine Semiconductor and Infineon’s purchase of International Rectifier wrap-up an action-packed season of M&A activity. How all of this will play out remains to be seen.

Tapas and Much More…

Yes, I had Tapas. And Paella. Some Sangria as well. But there was much more than good food and drink to be had in Barcelona, Spain last week during the GSMA’s Mobile World Congress event. This show has become the global event for the mobile ecosystem, and it lived up to expectations once again. International editor Richard Mumford and I spent the week meeting with some of the leading semiconductor and test solution providers in our industry, hearing about the latest news and products to hit the market. With more than 1,800 companies from 32 countries and 85,000 visitors, this show was jammed packed with people and excitement. MWC is a great example of how live events can bring people together with the latest technologies and products to drive business to new heights.
