On Tuesday June 6, Empower RF’s CTO , Paulo Correa, will be presenting the "Multi-Use Interoperable RF Amplifier" topic to an audience of IMS attendees at the Exhibitor Workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. in Room 318/319 of the Hawaii Convention Center.

In this workshop, Correa will define and evaluate power amplifier architecture for modern multi-mode applications, including the importance of key parameters, systems design considerations (hardware and software), operational mode settings, effective utilization of system wide components, performance trade-offs and forward looking/capabilities (future proofing).

Real world examples and data will be shown from a single Empower RF Next Generation COTS amplifier simulating several application specific scenarios using pulse mode, frequency hopping and multi-tone/multi-carrier modes respectively. These “use cases” provide an ideal context to discuss why this amplifier architecture has both input and output detectors and why this is necessary for user selectable Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and Automatic Level Control (ALC).
