Title: MMIC Amplifier Design
Date: September 17, 2013
Time:8:00 AM PT/ 11:00 AM ET/ 3:00 PM UTC
Presented by: Mini-Circuits
Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMIC) amplifiers are widely used in Giga Hertz (GHz) wireless systems. A multi-disciplinary approach is required to develop high performance, high quality MMIC amplifier products. Good understanding of compound semiconductor technologies, advanced circuit techniques, measurement methodology, excellent package and reliability testing ensure best performance MMIC amplifiers are released into the market in the shortest possible time.
This webinar offers an insight into MMIC amplifier design approaches, from semiconductor technology selection, circuit architectures, characterization and testing to final market released MMIC amplifiers. Along the way, some key differences in the approach between Mini-Circuits and typical market products will be highlighted.
