BSAC Technology Seminar - Radio Frequency Microsystems for 5G and IoT-Inspired Front End Signal Processing

Seminar | July 31 | 12-1 p.m. | 540 Cory Hall

 Prof. Songbin Gong, Assistant Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering

 Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center

Recently, 5G and IoT have sparked great research interest in developing the next generation front ends that can meet the more stringent requirements on performance, frequency scalability, bandwidth, power consumption, and spectral utilization efficiency. This talk will discuss several new types of RF microsystems that can enable either conventional signal processing functions (e.g., filtering and impedance transformation), or new ones (e.g., RF correlation and non-reciprocity) with unprecedented performance specifications for 5G and IoT applications. Specifically, the most recent developments on MEMS resonators, transformers, chirp compressors, gyrators, and circulators will be first presented and followed by the discussions on overcoming the remaining technology bottlenecks in their paths to commercialization.
