Several Besser Associates instructors are actively involved in the upcoming International Microwave Symposium this June in Baltimore. Their activities are briefly summarized below. If you would like more detailed information, the best place to get it would be from the show program, which is available as a PDF file.
Steve Cripps will be receiving the distinction of IEEE fellow for his contributions to broadband and high-efficiency RF power amplifiers. Dr. Cripps is also participating in several tecnhincal sessions on RF PA design, linearity, behavioral modeling and baluns. Be sure to review the outline for his upcoming course with John Wood on PA linearization in Boston.
John Wood will be contributing to workshops on RF power amplifier linearization and modeling, as well as serving as chairman for a technical session on GaN power amplifiers. In addition, he has contributed a paper on transistor modeling and served on the technical paper review committee.
Earl McCune will be participating in a workshop on reconfigurable, multi-standard low power applications of wireless technology. Dr. McCune will also present a course on digital signal formats for Besser Associates this summer, featuring his recenly published book on the same topic.
Ali Darwish is co-chair for a technical session on GaN and LDMOS linear power amplifiers, in which is is also presenting one of the papers. He is co-chair and one of the presenters for a focus session on microwave engineering around the world. He serves on the technical paper review committee, as well as acting as a regional coordinator. Dr. Darwish has two upcoming courses this year with Besser Associates. He will present a course on MMIC design this summer in San Jose and another course on RF power amplifier design in Dallas this November.
Waleed Khalil is the chair of a technical session on wide tuning range oscillators as well as acting on the technical program committee. We are offering his course on phase noise and jitter via two three-hour sessions in the web classroom environment this October. He will also present a course on RF CMOS design this fall in Dallas.
Ed Niehenke is one of the organizers for workshops on medical and biological sensors and systems and GaN MMIC design. He is a co-chair for a technical session on advances in mmwave and THz technologies. He has acted as a consultant to the technical program and steering committees as well as serving on the technical paper review committee. His updated course on transceiver architecture design will be added to the schedule of course offerings this December in San Jose.
We hope you get a chance to make it to the show. Besser Associates will be on the exhibition floor at booth number 1707. See you there!
