Technical Education Webinar Series
Title: High Performance Surface Mount Devices for Wideband mmWave Systems
Date: May 16, 2023
Time: 8am PT / 11am ET
Sponsored by: RFMW and Nuvotronics
Presented by: Dr. Bill Rhyne, Product Line Director, Component Products, Nuvotronics
Radar, Electronic Warfare (EW), and Communication Systems require high-performance wideband components. Typically, there is a tradeoff with wideband components between high performance and the use of surface mount technologies (SMT) that are easier to integrate into the overall system. In this webinar, we will present PolyStrata® technology which offers a unique three-dimensional additive manufacturing approach to building mmWave systems and components. We will share the basics of this technology and show how it can be applied to designing high-performance wideband components, such as filters, hybrid couplers, and directional couplers. We will show how this technology enables self-shielded surface mount devices that can be attached using conventional SMT assembly processes. Additionally, we will discuss how this technology scales to support high volume applications and how it can offer unmatched performance while dramatically improving ease of use while reducing size and weight.
Dr. Bill Rhyne is Product Line Director of Component Products at Nuvotronics where he is commercializing PolyStrata® Technology for new space applications, 5G and 6G applications, advanced mmWave packaging, mmWave radar, and EW applications among others. He has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from North Carolina State University and has worked at Texas Instruments, Motorola, Laird Technologies, and RFMD (now Qorvo). His previous work has included phased array radar systems, optoelectronics, RF and microwave semiconductors, multi-chip modules, and electronic materials.
