MicroApps

 

The sixth annual Microwave Application Seminars (MicroApps) at European Microwave Week 2016 (EuMW 2016) will be presented in London, UK from Tuesday, October 4th through Thursday, October 6th, 2016.

Exhibitors at the Symposium are invited to submit technical presentations describing state-of-the-art products, design techniques and processes of interest to the RF and microwave community. Papers should be prepared for verbal presentation, as well as electronic distribution, to EuMW attendees.

The intent of this open forum is for Exhibitors to highlight products and techniques useful to engineers in their day to day design work. Be sure to plan your visit to the MicroApp Auditorium when you are touring the Exhibit floor.

 

Highlights

  • MicroApps features a wide range of practical application papers describing novel products and processes.
  • Keynotes are presented by leading industry persons.
  • All MicroApps sessions are held on the Exhibition floor at the MicroApps Auditorium.
  • Exhibition Only Badges or Conference Badges enable complimentary access to all MicroApps sessions.
  • A complimentary USB containing the papers presented will be available as well as bottled water.

SPECIAL SESSION
New Possibilities with 60GHz Sensing Technologies

Uwe Rüddenklau, Infineon
Jaime Lien, Project Soli, Google ATAP

 

Project Soli, by Google ATAP in partnership with Infineon, developed a new interaction sensor for fine gesture sensing using 60 GHz radar technology. The sensor can track sub-millimeter motions at high speed and accuracy, enabling new paradigms of touchless gesture interaction. The Infineon-designed Soli chip can be produced at scale and built into small devices and everyday objects such as a smartwatch and home audio speaker. In this presentation, Infineon and Google representatives will discuss some of the challenges and successes of this project.

KEYNOTE
Load Modulation in Microwave Circuit Design: Past, Present and Future Applications

Dr. Steve C. Cripps, Cardiff University

 

Microwave circuit designers conventionally think of impedance transformation as being achievable only through the use of matching networks which use various passive reactive elements. The active alternative, which uses an injected co-phased signal to achieve the same ends, is little used, other than in power-managing RFPA topologies such as the Doherty and Chireix outphasing configurations. Recently published work by the author?s team have demonstrated that active load modulation can be used in a much wider range of microwave circuit applications. This talk will summarise this burgeoning field and illustrate some specific cases where active load modulation has been used to implement reconfigurable wideband amplifiers.
