IEEE ComSocSCV brings together the semiconductor industry leaders in the WiFi and 3G-CDMA/ 4G-LTE markets for this information packed technical meeting. Each of our esteemed speakers will present their subject matter as described in the abstracts below. A panel session with audience Q and A will follow the two presentations. ComSocSCV officer Daniel Wong, PHD will moderate the panel. The speakers will cover the technology trend (integrated technology (CDMA, OFDM, WiFi, etc..), memory size, major challenges, etc) for ICs inside broadband wireless devices (can be both basestation and subscriber), the market size, key applications and opportunities. Please join us for what promises to be an exciting and illuminating session!

1. Evolution of Wi-Fi, Michael Hurlston

Abstract: This talk will cover the progression of the Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11) market and technology over the past 10 years. Wi-Fi has moved from a data driven application set to mobile, video and even white spaces (unused broadcast TV spectrum). In addition, the WiFi technology itself has continued to evolve from 802.11b to g and on to the faster and more throughput efficient 802.11n. With those changes have come significant advances in the areas of RF design and Integrated Circuit implementations. These will be explored along with a glimpse at what the future may bring.

2. 3G and 4G Mobile Broadband Technologies and Silicon Solutions, Je Woo Kim,

Abstract: In the 3 part talk, we address the overall broadband wireless technologies and market trends. In section I, standards and technologies for the wireless broadband systems are described. 4G wish list and key features are addressed, too. In section II, mobile services, mobile broadband evolution and 3G/LTE multi-mode device strategy are discussed. For 3G/LTE multi-mode device strategy, the evolution path for data only LTE to VoLTE (voice)/LTE data is discussed. Silicon vendors, their products, features/technologies and product strategies for mobile broadband are compared in section III. The 3GPP progression path from LTE to LTE Advanced (true 4G) will also be examined.
