RF and Microwave Device and Circuit Research at UCSD-Wireless Technology for the 21st Century

November 7, 2003
Dr. Lawrence L. Larson, Director, University of California San Diego Center for Wireless Communication

In order for wireless technology to continue its remarkable development, new RF and microwave device technologies and circuit approaches will be required. These include development of ultra-efficient high power amplifiers, smart antenna structures, ultra-wideband transmitters and receivers, and low-cost millimeter wave transceivers. This talk will summarize the ongoing developments at the UCSD Center for Wireless communications in this area, with particular attention paid to novel device and circuit topologies that provide dramatic improvements in high-frequency performance.
