The third Interlligent UK RF and Microwave Design Seminar, entitled RF, microwave and millimetre wave design techniques towards 5G systems will take place at the Møller Centre, Cambridge, UK, on Thursday 18 May. The event aims to build on the success of previous events to highlight key topics in the industry. Experts in the field will focus on one of the most exciting frontiers of today’s wireless technology – design considerations and practical measurement challenges for broadband millimetre wave systems.
Millimetre wave technology is the new frontier for 5G ultra-fast mobile communications and 60 GHz WiGig, enabling a range of exciting new use cases and enhanced performance capabilities.
Moving up to mm-wave frequencies requires the RF engineer to deal with new design and measurement challenges, due both to the specific propagation characteristics of millimetre wave signals and to the very wide instantaneous bandwidths that may be involved. This year’s seminar aims to address these unique challenges.
