Ka-band Direct Digital Conversion: Now Within Reach of Modern Data Converters

Available On-Demand
Duration: 36 Minutes

This webinar considers market trends driving renewed interest in ultra-wideband soft radios and especially a current drive to extend their performance into the Ka-band (between 26.5 and 40 GHz). Achieving such a goal is not easy. It requires careful consideration of system architecture, deploying the right semiconductor process technologies and importantly considering integration approaches that can no longer rely simply on the scaling benefits of Moore’s law. This is pertinent for space-based applications, but equally has far-reaching implications for ground-based wireless infrastructure.
