Technical Education Webinar Series

Title: Leveraging Silicon-on-Sapphire Performance Advantages in Power Management

Date: November 12, 2013

Time: 8:00 AM PT/ 11:00 AM ET/ 4:00 PM UTC

Presented by: Peter Bacon, Director, Systems & Architecture, High Performance Solutions, Peregrine Semiconductor Corp.

Outline:
Leveraging digital functionality to improve RF performance

  • Configuration
  • Optimization
  • Tunability
  • Feedback/Control loops
  • Real-time optimization
  • Benefits of integration, single die versus multiple
    - 1 to 1 device correlation (mfg variance and device type/behavior)

Specific applications

  • T/R setup & control
    - fast T/R switching
    - DTC based phase shifter
  • Phase shifter sub-band optimization
  • Tunable filters
  • Amplifier bias control - digital setting, analog control loop
  • Autonomous antenna impedance matching
  • # of embedded interface lines versus discrete, mixed technology components
