Please join us for two provacative panels at EDI CON USA 2017 covering High Performance GaN Technology and 5G mmWave Systems & Test. I will be moderating these - should be an interesting and lively discussion with some of the best experts in the field.
“The Ferrari of amplifiers – How can we maneuver around the current challenges facing high performance GaN”
Sept 12th, Tues 4:30-5:30, Frequency Matters Theater (exhibition floor)
This panel session will explore the challenges and solutions for high performance GaN amplifiers including substrate choice (SiC versus Si versus diamond), packaging and thermal issues, space qualification, high efficiency design techniques (envelope tracking versus various outphasing techniques) and reducing overall SWAP-C.
