Dr. John Dunn
(advance registration required)
This web-based training session will give RF/microwave software designers a jump start on using new and enhanced features in Cadence® AWR Design Environment® for power amplifier (PA) design. Features to be covered that are of importance to PA designers include improved simulation, advanced load pull, new stability measurements, and enhanced graphing capabilities, as well as expanded network matching.
Specific highlights include:
- Load Pull: 4th and 5th harmonics, video band
- Stability: loop-gain measurements
- Network Synthesis: vendor parts
- Graphing Enhancements: rectangular graph load-pull results
- EM Simulation: AXIEM® DC solve
Dr. John Dunn is an EM technologist with Cadence and spearheads the AWR training programs. Before entering the commercial electronics industry, Dr. Dunn was a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder, for 15 years. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in applied physics from Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
