Custom MMIC, a leading developer of performance driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) is pleased to announce Dr. Charles J. Trantanella, Chief Scientist at Custom MMIC, will be presenting at EDI CON USA 2016 on September 22 with his talk at 9:00 a.m. entitled, “Reaching New Heights in Mixer Linearity with GaN MMIC Technology.”

With over half a dozen technical articles in trade publications including Microwave Journal, Microwave Product Digest, and the conference proceedings of the International Microwave Symposium, Dr. Trantanella has championed a number of high value design contracts including Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grants from US governmental agencies. He has helped generate over 120 custom and commercial products including digital phase shifters, switches, mixers, and frequency doublers. Dr. Trantanella has over 22 years of MMIC design experience, during which he revolutionized the use of spiral baluns in double balanced mixers as well as passive frequency doublers, thereby creating two of the most successful product lines in the MMIC industry. 

Dr. Trantanella’s will be held Thursday morning from 9:00 – 9:30 a.m. in Room 202 of the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Trantanella will cover implementation of GaN substrates in various mixer topologies as well as showing breakthroughs in linearity for these topologies including Cold FET, Balanced Diode and Single-Ended FET.
