RF/Microwave Training Webinar Series

Title: Mixers and Frequency Conversion

Date: May 20, 2014

Time: 8am PT/ 11am ET/ 3pm UTC

Presented by: Besser Associates

Presenter: Allen Podell, IEEE Life Fellow

Sponsored by: Mini-Circuits

Outline:
Frequency conversion is a critical function in all wireless systems. A key component used to accomplish this is the mixer. Designers need to understand different mixer topologies and specifications in order to meet their system requirements. This webinar provides a brief overview of frequency conversion and introduces the mixer as the component used to accomplish this function.

· RF System Architectures
· How many conversions?
· How to Convert? What is a mixer figure of merit?
· Passive diode mixers versus passive FET mixers
· Monolithic silicon active mixer issues
· Comparing Mixer Specifications
· Design Overview

Presenter Bio:
Allen Podell, an IEEE Life Fellow, has designed monolithic and discrete circuits on gallium arsenide, silicon, sapphire, and plastic. With a solid foundation in device-circuit interaction, he specializes in the practical realization of modern circuit techniques. An author of over 70 technical papers, he founded three companies (Anzac Electronics, Podell Associates, and Pacific Monolithics) and he holds 60 US patents ranging from IMPATT diodes, silicon power transistors, and 3-decade bandwidth microwave components, stereo demodulators, antennas, gallium arsenide integrated circuits - and more recently, high power, wideband components. Previously, as VP of Technology at Besser Associates and later at Podell Consulting, he has taught advanced wireless design courses and provided consulting services worldwide. Allen Podell is presenting the Besser Associates’ public web class, Power Amplifier ABC's, June 16 to 20, 2014.
