Title: Optimal Simulation Techniques for High Linearity Systems

Date: February 1, 2023

Sponsored by: RFMW and Marki Microwave

Presented by: Harley Berman, Applications Engineer, Marki Microwave

Modern receiver designers are tasked with designing ultra-high linearity receivers, making s-parameter models for many components useless for final simulations. While one can build a quasi-nonlinear amplifier model from an s2p file and a datasheet, accurately simulating something like a mixer always requires a fully nonlinear model. At Marki Microwave, we aimed to solve this problem and prevent wasting time running nonlinear simulations with linear device models. Join us for this 45-minute webinar where we will build a simple receiver simulation from the ground up using small signal s-parameters, standard nonlinear models, and Marki’s proprietary physics-based nonlinear device models.

Presenter Bio:

Harley Berman is an Applications Engineer at Marki Microwave’s San Diego office. Since joining the company in 2019, his role has spanned working with mixers, multipliers, limiters and passive devices, to conducting experiments for tech notes, to datasheet characterization and applications support. Berman has contributed to the release of products across most of Marki Microwave’s product families, published seven tech notes on various products and system considerations, and hosted webinars on mixer spurs and the performance of Marki Microwave hardware in quantum information systems. Prior to joining Marki Microwave, Berman was a student at UC Santa Cruz where he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering, graduating with highest honors. While at UC Santa Cruz, he contributed to the RF payload for the school's 2U cubesat project, SlugSat.
