RF PA Design Series P4: RF Module Design using Amalfi CMOS PA
November 15, 2012
10:00 AM PT/ 1:00 PM ET/ 6:00 PM UTC
Why this webcast is important:
Designing CMOS RF Power Amplifiers is a complex task, which requires various simulation technologies. In this webcast, we will present a comprehensive CMOS Power Amplifier design methodology based on a real world example: Amalfi’s dual band PA module, AM7802. You will learn how CMOS Power Amplifiers ICs are modeled with *X-parameters, how to model laminates and packages with advanced EM simulation technologies, and how to integrate all of these results for complete module design verification.
*X-parameters is a trademark of Agilent Technologies. The X-parameter format and underlying equations are open and documented. For more information, visit www.agilent.com/find/eesof-x-parameters-info
Who should attend:
Power Amplifier Designers
Hee-Soo Lee, 3D EM Applications Specialist, Agilent EEsof EDA
Hee-Soo Lee holds a BSEE degree from the Hankuk Aviation University, Korea. He has more than 20 years of design and simulation experience in the area of RF and Microwave designs, and is currently the Applications Specialist for 3D EM solutions at Agilent EEsof EDA.
Andy Howard, Senior Applications Expert, Agilent EEsof
Andy Howard joined HP in 1985 as a development engineer designing microwave circuits. He spent a year in Japan as a systems engineer before becoming an HP EEsof applications engineer in 1993. His applications work has included simulating noise in nonlinear circuits, high-yield design techniques (design of experiments), Circuit Envelope applications, and for the past fourteen years Agilent ADS, RFDE, and GoldenGate examples. He developed the ADS Amplifier DesignGuide, and also worked on the Mixer DesignGuide. He has extensively updated the ADS Load Pull DesignGuide. He designed a high-speed prescaler IC using Agilent’s RFIC Dynamic Link, that was fabricated using IBM’s SiGe process. He is the author of the RFIC Flow Workshop. He graduated from U.C. Berkeley, B.S. E.E., 1983, and M.S. E.E., 1985. He was a visiting researcher for one year at NEC's Central Research Labs in Japan while a graduate student, and is fluent in Japanese. He has published a more than 20 magazine articles, HP or Agilent seminar papers, and application notes.
