IEEE WAMICON Announces the 2017 Technical Program with Speakers from Anokiwave, GlobalFoundries, Keysight, National Instruments, Qorvo, University of Colorado-Boulder and University of South Florida

COCOA BEACH, FL - April 4, 2017 - The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Wireless and Microwave Technology Conference (WAMICON), today announced updates to the technical program. The conference, which will focus on power amplifiers, semiconductors and software for 5G wireless communications and the Internet of Things (IoT), will take place from April 24-25, 2017.

The two-day program has two parallel technical tracks, covering topics such as active circuits, measurement techniques, passive devices, power amplifiers, antennas, wireless communications, reconfigurable devices, and an interactive forum. See below for a list of highlights from keynote speakers, panelists, and tutorials.

Keynotes

  • The impact of Silicon as an emerging technology for 5G Circuits and System Solutions, Paul Colestock, founding director and currently head of the Exploratory Design Group at GLOBALFOUNDRIES
  • PA Design for Future Wireless Systems, Zoya Popovic, Distinguished Professor Hudson Moore Jr. Endowed Chair of the Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder
Panel Session
  • The Push and Pull of Technology Solutions for 5G - 5G represents a strong, yet still not completely defined, market pull for new and cost effective technology solutions. This pull is driving the push for advances in semiconductors, circuit design, test and simulation, heterogeneous integration and packaging. This panel will allow speakers to present their perspectives on the push and pull of the solutions required to realize the promise of 5G for practical applications.

About IEEE WAMICON: WAMICON is an annual Wireless and Microwave Conference held in Florida. WAMICON started life as an outcome of industry/academic exchange between the University of South Florida (USF) Electrical Engineering Department's Center for Wireless and Microwave Information Systems (WAMI Center) and a number of both local and national companies involved in microwave and wireless engineering. The conference began in 1999, to bring together academia, industry, and government to discuss advances in wireless and microwave technologies.

IEEE WAMICON Announces the 2017 Initial Corporate Event Sponsors

COCOA BEACH, FL - February 21, 2017 - The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Wireless and Microwave Technology Conference (WAMICON), today announced sponsors for the 18th annual event which will take place in Cocoa Beach Florida. The conference, which will focus on power amplifiers, semiconductors and software for 5G wireless communications and the Internet of Things (IoT), will take place from April 24-25, 2017.

This year's platinum sponsor is Mini-Circuits, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of RF/IF and microwave products from DC to 40 GHz for commercial, industrial, and military applications. With design, manufacturing and sales locations in over 30 countries, Mini-Circuits offers 27 product lines comprising over 10,000 unique models as well as custom designs. Mini-Circuits products are used in a wide range of wired and wireless communication systems including telecommunications, CATV and broadband/optical networks, defense, aerospace, test and measurement, medical and diagnostic and more. "We are long time supporters of IEEE WAMICON because the RF and MW conference brings together industry, academia, and government experts in our field, in a collaborative venue. We are especially interested in this year's event focus on the role RF components will play in 5G and IoT," said Ted Heil, sales and marketing manager at Mini-Circuits.

Jim Assurian, exhibition and sponsor co-chair for WAMICON, business development manager for Reactel added "We are thrilled to see Mini-Circuits return as the platinum sponsor. In addition, both Keysight and Wolfspeed, A Cree Company, returned as gold level sponsors of the conference. They have supported our conference and educated attendees for well over a decade now. I think that is a testament to the quality of the conference and our network." Our 2017 returning silver sponsors are Harris Corporation and TTE Corporation. We are also very proud to announce that Qorvo, a provider of innovative and high performance RF solutions for advanced wireless devices, defense radar and communications, is a new silver sponsor to WAMICON 2017.
