RF Technologies for Next-Generation 5G and Optical Communications Systems

The increasing frequencies and data rates required for next-generation communications hardware, whether 5G wireless or 400-800 Gbps optical, are driving more demanding performance from the circuits and components that make up these systems. Technology options and trade-offs must be carefully evaluated to develop the highly optimized chips needed to keep pace with the performance, features and function these systems must deliver. This webinar will review available silicon and gallium nitride process technology options and identify advantages, disadvantages and design considerations for RF semiconductor solutions in these advanced communications systems.
