Title: Design Considerations for High Dynamic Range Receiver Subsystems

Date: September 27, 2023

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: RFMW and Marki Microwave

Presented by: Harley Berman, Applications Engineer, Marki Microwave

At the heart of any communication system is a receiver– a modular system that allows one to detect, demodulate, and digitize signals with high selectivity, sensitivity, and linearity. Such a system can be broken down into easily digestible subsystems: RF Front end, Signal Conditioning, Frequency Conversion, LO generation, and Analog Front End. System level targets for dynamic range and sensitivity can drive decisions around frequency planning and the choice between frequency conversion stages versus direct conversion architectures. Selecting the appropriate architecture and subsystems, understanding how these subsystems work in isolation, and developing intuition about how they work with each other is the magic of receiver design! Join us for this webinar where we will discuss tradeoffs, frequency planning, and how to select hardware for a high dynamic range receiver.

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.
