RF Converters Enable Multiple Wideband Applications

This webcast will focus on the advantages and flexibility that RF data converters bring to a radio designer, especially with the higher data rates that recent advances in converter technology have enabled. Radio applications such as wireless infrastructure, cable headend transmitters, radar, and instrumentation can all be implemented and simplified through the use of RF converters. Examples of transmitters using RF DACs will be shown.

Daniel E. Fague is the director of systems application engineering in the High Speed Products Group at Analog Devices. He received his B.S.E.E from Gonzaga University in 1989 and his M.S.E.E. from the University of California at Davis in 1991. He joined Analog Devices’ Wireless Handset Group in 1995 where he focused on handset radio architecture design, including direct conversion radios, for GSM, EDGE, CDMA, and Bluetooth. Prior to that, he worked for five years at National Semiconductor doing radio architecture design for DECT and PHS. Since joining the High Speed Products Group in 2011, Dan has focused on RF converter development. He holds seven patents and has published more than 30 articles and papers.
