Description:
This webcast will introduce the concept of phased array and why its useful. We'll next look at trade-offs between Analog and Digital Beamforming. Then we'll begin to focus on Analog Beamforming and advances in Semiconductor Technology and ICs that are making these solutions higher performance, simpler to implement and more cost effective.

During this webinar you will learn:
- Phased Array Basics
- Benefits of Analog vs. Digital Beamforming
- Advances in ICs used in Analog Beamforming

Who should attend:
People that are interested in designing phased array antennae. Applications include Military Radar, Satellite communications, etc.

Speaker:
Keith Benson spent much of his early career at Hittite Microwave designing ICs used in RF wireless electronics. He then moved to manage a team of IC design engineers focusing on wireless communication links. In 2014, Hittite Microwave was acquired by Analog Devices where he became the Director of RF/MW Amplifiers & Phased Array ICs.
