New Course Focuses on SoC Issues

Instructor Orin Eliezer has developed a new course, Designing RF Transcievers in Extensively Digital SoC's which will be offered next May. Wireless consumer-market products, such as cellular transceivers, WiFi radios and Bluetooth devices, are being made available at ever reducing costs, while offering greater amounts of functionality and higher performance. This is made possible by increasing the level of integration and incorporating wireless transceivers with processors and other circuitry into a monolithic CMOS (SoC). In such environment, the transceiver architecture relies more heavily on digital logic and software algorithms when compared to traditional RF design approaches. This allows such SoC devices to leverage the benefits of the advanced nanometer CMOS fabrication processes while addressing the challenges associated with the implementation of RF functions in such environment. The constant introduction of new wireless standards, as well as the need to acco ...

NEW! Sign Up to Attend a Full Two Day Classroom Course Without Leaving Your Office

We enlisted a professional videographer to record Rick Fornes' presentation of his recent RF Fundamentals and Wireless System Design course in San Jose, CA. The entire two day presentation will now be offered as an online course this December 1, 2015- January 31, 2016. During that time, students can view the lectures and ask questions at their own pace from any location with internet access.

Starting this Fall, we are offering one hour recorded webcasts available for free to registered users on our RF Mentor site. You can register for a free account which will give you access to these tutorials as they become available.
Invitations to attend the live webcasts are sent to existing Besser Associates customers. Sign up for any Besser Associates course to be included on the invitation list for the live tutorial webcasts!

Four Online RF Technology Courses Now Available to Start Anytime

Besser Associates now offers an "a-la-carte" option for learning the material from the online RF Technology Certification program. It is now possible to register for each of the four parts of the program individually. These are available to be started any time you choose to sign up. These consist of the same lectures and workbooks from the Certification program but do not include any live webcast tutorials.

Courses Become Available On-Demand

This November will mark the tenth anniversary of Besser Associates "Web Classroom," where we have offered selected topics in a live online (webinar) format. Now, we have made these course recordings available beyond their original event dates, so you can attend the class even if you missed the original scheduled meetings. 

Besser Associates also offers courses such as the RF and Wireless Made Simple and the RF Technology Certification program that have been designed to be taken in a self-paced format.

A third, new option coming this September is a video recording of the instructor's presentation in a classroom course.
