LED & Lighting / RF & Wireless Design Forum – Cambridge – March 24th

As normal attendance is FREE and includes parking, wifi, refreshments, lunch and much more….

This Forum will follow a proven formula of AM Technical Presentations, PM Technical Workshops, with all day networking and desktop exhibition area, agenda for the day as follows:

~ AM Technical Presentations ~

Overview of latest leading I/Q Mod, De-Mod, Mixer and Synthesiser products from Linear Technology

The presentation will show examples of new market leading wireless devices from Linear Technology Corporation, including key specifications versus competition in each of the mixer/modulator and synthesiser arenas.

Using Coilcraft Design Tools to Demonstrate Effects of Inductance Value in a Buck Converter

Using Coilcraft Design Tools, this presentation will demonstrate the feasibility of using a lower inductance solution compared to the theoretically calculated value in a buck converter design.  It shall be shown that using a lower inductance value allows the buck converter to operate in higher ripple conditions with the respective losses discussed.

The aim is to find the best compromise with respect to efficiency, response time, stability and physical size using different inductor technologies.  This will be demonstrated using different magnetic materials.
The effects of ambient temperature will also be presented.

RF Design Tools and Support from Analog Devices:

An interactive workshop showcasing the RF Design tools and local support available from Analog Devices and EBV Elektronik.
The recent acquisition of Hittite Microwave Corporation complements ADI’s RF and signal conversion expertise with Hittite’s strength in RF , microwave and millimeter wave technology.

Analog Devices supports its broad RF-IC portfolio with a comprehensive suite of design tools, reference designs and local support. Tutorials with examples will be provided on ADIsimRF and ADIsimSRD Design Studio.

The complete ADI RF portfolio is now available through EBV Elektronik supported by the local EBV RF Specialist Ian Greenshields.

Homing in on the LTC5599 low Power IQ Modulator as one specific example of Linear Technology’s leading capabilities:

The LTC5599 is a 30MHz to 1.3GHz, lowest power I/Q modulator on the market today. Its 2.7V to 3.6V supply voltage range draws only 28mA current, exacting a power consumption that is less than 60% of competing solutions. The device is ideal for battery-powered transmitters operating in the VHF, UHF, Land Mobile Radio, 700MHz LTE and 902-928MHz ISM frequency bands. The LTC5599 offers outstanding -52.6dBc sideband suppression and -51.5dBm carrier leakage – without calibration and it has very low -156dBm/Hz noise floor with 20.8dBm OIP3 enable superior transmitter dynamic range performance.
