Title: The Journey to LTCC Components for Millimeter Wave Applications
Date: September 10, 2019
Time: 8:30am PT / 11:30am ET
Sponsored by: Mini-Circuits
Presented by: Aaron Vaisman, LTCC Product Line Manager, Mini-Circuits
Low Temperature Co-Fired Ceramic (LTCC) has been a proven technology for the implementation of miniature RF components under 6 GHz for over 20 years. LTCC components offer desirable performance over a wide range of operating frequencies, power levels and environmental conditions. Their repeatable performance, scalability and low cost have made them a successful and popular solution for applications with high-volume production requirements. Until recently, known constraints of LTCC technology have limited its adoption for applications at higher frequencies. This workshop reviews the traditional constraints of LTCC technology and explores how recent advances in material science and circuit topologies combined with advanced material characterization and simulation tools has enabled the development of cost-effective LTCC components with excellent performance up to 60 GHz.
Aaron Vaisman B.Sc. degree from Universidad de los Andes, Colombia, 2007; M.Sc. from Columbia University in the city of New York, 2009. Mr. Vaisman is the LTCC Product Line Manager at Mini-Circuits where he has previously held several design positions since he joined the company in 2010. As a designer, he has been mainly involved in the design of both: connectorized and surface mount passive components in diverse technologies such as LTCC, MMIC, Thin-Film and PCB. His primary areas of interest and research include Millimeter-Wave passive components and interconnects, network analysis and synthesis techniques, EM simulation techniques, measurement uncertainty and statistical analysis. His design experience ranges from HF to V frequency bands, and he has been awarded three patents in some of the above mentioned fields, with others pending approval. As a the LTCC product line manager, Mr. Vaisman has, among other things, been guiding the investment in the technology’s development, shaping the pipeline and creating the roadmap of products resulting in market share growth, leadership and relevance of its offerings.
