Technical Education Webinar Series
Title: Comparing RF Technologies for Next-Generation 5G and Optical Communications Systems
Date: May 16, 2019
Time: 8am PT / 11am ET
Sponsored by: GlobalFoundries
Presented by: Mike Peters, Deputy Director, SiGe Product Line at GlobalFoundries
The increasing frequencies and data rates required for next-generation communications hardware, whether 5G wireless or 400-800 Gbps optical, are driving more demanding performance from the circuits and components that make up these systems. Technology options and trade-offs must be carefully evaluated to develop the highly optimized chips needed to keep pace with the performance, features and function these systems must deliver. This webinar will review available silicon and gallium nitride process technology options and identify advantages, disadvantages and design considerations for RF semiconductor solutions in these advanced communications systems.
Mike is the Deputy Director for the SiGe product line at GlobalFoundries, responsible for managing differentiated RF process technology offerings that enable innovative semiconductor solutions for 5G/mmWave, optical and wireless communications applications. He has more than 30 years’ experience in the semiconductor industry, with a focus on RF and wireless communications devices and process engineering, marketing and Foundry Services. Prior to joining GlobalFoundries in 2018, Mike held senior technical and marketing positions at Qorvo and TriQuint. Mike holds a Master’s Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from UC Santa Barbara, an MBA from Marylhurst University and attended the Stanford Executive Institute.
