Date: 12 December 2011
Time(s): 10.00 - 14.30
Venue: Analog Devices, Raheen Industrial Estate, Limerick
Radio Access infrastructures are moving toward the integration of electronics into masthead product/systems. There is a growing focus on the size, efficiency, flexibility and a power aspect of component solutions for these next generation radios; innovative solutions are required. Questions to be addressed in this SIG Event include:
1. What is the role of broadband reconfigurable radios?
2. How effective is MEMs Switching in future solutions?
3. What are the likely future PA architectures to meet next generation applications?
