Upcoming Webinar - "Fundamentals of Millimeter-Wave Frequency Generation and Synthesis in Silicon", Presented by Prof. Payam Heydari


 "Fundamentals of Millimeter-Wave Frequency Generation and Synthesis in Silicon", Presented by Professor Payam Heydari, University of California, Irvine will be held on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at 12:00 PM EST. 

This webinar talk will present mm-wave frequency generation using lower-frequency PLLs followed by frequency multipliers, and make a case in favor of this technique to be employed for large transceiver arrays. Finally, a new perspective and design philosophy on mm-wave/THz frequency synthesizer design for the purpose of maximizing output power and frequency tuning and minimizing phase-noise will be provided.
