We are constantly adding and updating our course offerings. Here are some programs that have been added or significantly modified in recent months.
This course has been recently updated to include coverage of mm-wave techniques for MMIC design. Sep 26-Sep 28, 2018: San Jose, CA: Presented by: Ali Darwish
This three day course provides comprehensive information on the 5G wireless network with a focus on physical layer and air interface technologies. The course starts with a review of cellular standards evolution and the shortcomings that 5G addresses. Next we move on to describe the modulation waveforms and also look at the issues that are introduced by working with higher GHz frequency bands. Further topics include Massive MIMO, network architecture, 5G system features, and evolutionary services. May 07-May 09, 2018: San Diego, CA: Presented by: Joe Boccuzzi
This two day course provides participants with coverage of antenna, integration, test, and propagation topics associated with millimeter Wave (mm-Wave) and 5G applications. The course provides an understanding of basic antenna property definitions, antenna fundamentals and considerations, antenna types and mm-Wave propagation fundamentals. The course provides information on how antenna properties and propagation characteristics affect communication systems. Topics also covered include how to test and measure mm-Wave antenna performance. Sep 24-Sep 25, 2018: San Jose, CA: Presented by: Steven Best
This course is intended for design, application and test engineers as well as technicians wanting to learn about the fundamentals of handset RF architectures, including aspects of the radio design covering the entire signal chain from the RF input to the A/D Digital interface. The aim is understand system design methods to dissect the different radio architectures with emphasis on the physical layer (RF) for the most advanced commercial 4G-LTE and the new MIMO-5G systems. Aug 22-Aug 24, 2018: San Jose, CA: Presented by: Rick Fornes
New course based on material from Les Besser's famous RF course presented in the format of our online RF Certification courses. Lecture videos are followed by online workbook with custom calculators and numerical exercises. Coming soon - check back often or send us a message for more information! Apr 23-Oct 01, 2018: Live Web Conference, RF Mentor e-Learning: Presented by: Rex Frobenius
Successful integration of WiFi and or Bluetooth features into a product requires more than simply finding room on the board to place "off the shelf" chips. A proper understanding of how the radios work and the issues that they face will allow you to achieve a successful implementation with fewer expensive surprizes. This two day course provides a working knowledge of how the standards operate to guide your integration efforts.
