Custom MMIC is proud to announce Paul Blount, President of Custom MMIC, will offer a webinar discussion on phase noise in monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifiers, as part of Microwave Journal’s E-Learning Technical Education Training Series. The webinar will be conducted on Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017 at 11:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT, New York, GMT-04:00).
Phase noise in wireless communications, satellite communications (SATCOM), and military radar systems has become an increasingly significant challenge to overcome. This is due to the increased use of complex modulation methods requiring low noise and low phase noise to maintain the necessary levels of bit-error-rate and error-vector-magnitude (EVM) in high speed wireless communications, and the range and velocity accuracy in frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) chirp radar or radar leveraging digital modulation-based pulse compression techniques.
Common confusion surrounds the impact of phase noise, versus amplitude noise, on system performance and where phase noise comes from in microwave signal chains. In this webinar, Custom MMIC’s Paul Blount will share important information about the origins of phase noise in oscillators, amplifiers, and frequency multipliers. He will discuss some of the current efforts being applied to the design of MMICs addressing the latest phase noise signal chain challenges.
