The Wonderful World of Nonlinearity: Modeling and Characterization of RF and Microwave Circuits

DML 2014-2016 Jose Carlos Pedro

Instituto de Telecomunicacoes, Universidade de Aveiro, Aveiro, 3810-193, Portugal

Tel: +351 234377900


Despite the many studies that have been undertaken to understand the wonderful world of nonlinearity, most undergraduate electrical engineering programs are still confined to linear analysis and design tools. As a result, the vast majority of microwave designers still cannot profit from the...


Everything You Can Do With Vector Nonlinear Microwave Measurements

DML 2016-2018 Patrick Roblin

The advent of nonlinear vector network analyzers (NVNA) has stimulated the introduction of new paradigms in microwave engineering for (1) the measurement, (2) the modeling and (3) the design of nonlinear microwave circuits such as microwave power amplifiers and oscillators.

This talk will...


Towards Greener Smartphones with Microwave Measurements

DML-E 2015-2016 Dominique Schreurs

Member and Past Chair, DML 2012-2014Div. ESAT-TELEMIC, K.U.Leuven, Kasteelpark Arenberg 10, Leuven, B-3001, Belgium

Tel: +32 16-321821

Today's smartphone handsets offer a wide range of functions (phone, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, .) to customers, although are still perceived as expensive and energy consuming (requiring a daily recharge). The aim of this talk is to show how microwave measurements impact smartphone design. By...
