National Instruments UK & Ireland and AWR invite engineers, researchers and technicians to discover the latest RF and Microwave technologies, techniques and applications at a free one-day event. The RF and Microwave Symposium will take place on 24 September in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, and on 26 September at NI UK & Ireland Headquarters in Newbury, Berkshire. Throughout the day, delegates will learn how to optimise spectrum analyser measurements, implement phase-coherent MIMO systems and introduce real measurements alongside simulation in the design process.
Entitled Applying Modular Instrumentation to Reduce the Cost of Test, the keynote presentation will explore how NI’s modular, software-defined RF platform can help to lower the total ownership cost by reducing the number of legacy instruments needed, aiding in the insertion of new technology and reducing sustainment costs.
The symposium offers delegates a choice of two tracks tailored to specific interests: Wireless and Communications or RF and Microwave. Delegates choosing the Wireless and Communication track will gain first-hand insight into how they can use automation to solve challenging problems in the RF and wireless industry. In addition, delegates will review key technology enhancements and test challenges associated with new standards such as IEEE 802.11ac and LTE Advanced.
The alternative track focuses on microwave, RADAR, RF and signal intelligence, with topics including the design and simulation of RADAR systems and PXI technologies for RF record and playback. Delegates will also learn valuable tips and tricks for capturing and demodulating off-the-air signals.
