Technical Education Webinar Series
Title: mmWave Silicon Technologies - Tackling Performance, Integration & Affordability for 5G
Date: September 12, 2018
Time: 8am PT / 11am ET
Sponsored by: GLOBALFOUNDRIES
Presented by: Shankaran Janardhanan, Director of RF SOI, FDX™ RF and RF CMOS Offerings, GLOBALFOUNDRIES
The upcoming adoption of 5G mmWave standards is driving an unprecedented upgrade cycle in connectivity hardware. RF is seen as THE key enabler for 5G mmWave applications. Products and applications made possible by RF connectivity include mobile devices, the internet of things, automotive radar, connected cars, the network infrastructure and optical modules. As 5G adoption accelerates, the industry needs to tackle the performance, integration and affordability challenges for mmWave 5G. This presentation explores these challenges, along with RF CMOS, RF SOI and SiGe mmWave technologies supporting various architecture approaches that designers can leverage for end-to-end solutions.
Shankaran is Director of Product Line Management for RF at GLOBALFOUNDRIES, and brings over 15 years of design/development, technical sales, business development, field applications engineering and marketing experience in the area of RF & Analog mixed signal systems, circuits and technologies. Mr. Janardhanan is responsible for all RF product & portfolio management, business development and investment at GF, including technologies such as RF SOI, RF CMOS and FDX-RF.
In 2015, he helped support the M&A activity that culminated in the acquisition of the IBM Microelectronics Specialty Foundry business and helped broaden the GF differentiated technology portfolio and manufacturing footprint. In his previous role at GF, he managed the RF & Power management business development and field applications organization. Prior to joining GF, Shankaran was at TowerJazz, where he had various roles in design engineering, technology and product management for RF and MEMS products, and managed the design support function.
Shankaran has an M.B.A. from University of California–Berkeley and an M.S. in electrical engineering from Temple University. Shankaran has co-authored several papers and published a number of trade journal articles and blogs and speaks regularly on the trends and developments in the RF space at conferences and consortiums across the world.
