SATURDAY May 9, 2009
SCV Microwave Theory and Techniques Chapter
Speakers: Eight presentations on WiFi, WiMAX, Bluetooth transceivers
Time: Registration and breakfast at 7:45 AM; Short Course from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Cost: $75 for IEEE Members, $80 for Nonmembers ($40 for Retirees and Unemployed, free for Students and Unemployed IEEE Members) â?? includes breakfast, lunch
Place: SLAC, 2575 Sand Hill Rd, Menlo Park
RSVP: by April 25 (higher fee after)

The focus of the 2009 IEEE MTT SCV short course held at the SLAC Auditorium will be the design and implementation challenges of WiFi, WiMAX, and Bluetooth transceivers. The short course is design oriented and divided into three parts:
â?¢? Wireless standards and their translation into the architecture, budget, and functional-block specification
â?¢? Transceiver building block specifications and design
â?¢? Automatic design verification and test of complex RF and mixed-signal blocks and systems
Our guest speakers are prominent leaders from academia and industry who will be providing their own practical experience and guidance on the design challenges. This promises to be an exciting short course for all engineers and technologists interested in learning more about the wireless revolution and how it is being implemented.
â?¢? From Standards to Transceiver System Budgeting: WiMAX Architecture and PLL Design
â?¢? Embedded RF Interfaces in Deep Submicron CMOS: Challenges and Opportunities
â?¢? Many-Band Front End: LNA, Mixers, and Integrated Filters
â?¢? Mobile Power Amplifiers
â?¢? Millimeter Wave Radio IC Design: Portable, Self-Testable, Scalable
â?¢? Performance Metrics, Trends, and Limits of A/D Converters for Wireless Systems
â?¢? RF System-on-Chip Design and Verification
â?¢? New Modeling and Testing Approaches: X-Parameter Characterization
