Abstract:

Fifth generation cellular communications standards (5G) target Gb/s data-rates, pushing the industry beyond to use frequencies above 26 GHz. To maintain acceptable link budgets with sufficient antenna apertures, arrays are typically required at these frequencies and electrical beam steering is needed to retain spatial coverage. CMOS FINFET’s represent an ideal technology match, given the high level of integration required; however, power amplifier design is challenging in this technology. Fortunately, due to the array gain and distributed power among many power amplifiers, the power output required per PA is moderate. This talk will focus on how to design such power amplifiers in FINFET technologies suitable for high levels of integration on a multi-transceiver die.

Bio:

Christopher Hull received his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1992. He joined Rockwell Semiconductor Systems in Newport Beach, CA in 1992. In 1998 Chris joined Silicon Wave in San Diego, California, In 2001, Chris joined Innocomm Wireless, which was subsequently acquired by National Semiconductor. . In May, 2003 Chris joined the Wireless Networking Group of Intel, in San Diego, California. And In June 2005, Chris moved to Hillsboro Oregon. In 2013, Chris spent1 year on international assignment in Munich, Germany to work closely with his colleagues from Intel Mobile Communications on 4G cellular transceivers. Since May 2015, Chris has been working as Director/Sr. Principal Engineer for Intel Labs.
