Back for 2016! Join us for RF Bootcamp on Wednesday, on 25 May!

In recent years, the idea has been discussed to add a new session to IMS which would provide an introduction to RF basics, targeting newcomers to the microwave world, such as new engineers fresh out of school, engineers changing their career path, and college students looking to gain practical experience. RF Boot Camp is that session!

RF Boot Camp
Wednesday, 25 May 2016
Moscone Center, Room 309


The format of the RF Boot Camp is similar to that of a workshop or short course, with multiple presenters from industry and academia presenting on a variety of topics including:  

  • Network Analysis
  • Modular Instruments
  • Signal Generation and Analysis
  • RF Simulation Fundamentals
  • Impedance Matching Fundamentals
  • Introduction to Simulation-Based GaN PA Design
  • Understanding Basic RF Analog Receiver Design and Analysis.

RF Boot Camp will be a three-quarter day course and will be held on Wednesday, 25 May 2016.  To provide the best possible experience, registered attendees will have the opportunity to visit the vendor exhibit hall after the course, as well as attend that evening’s industry hosted reception.  In addition to presentations and discussions, test equipment will be on hand for demonstrations and visualization.
