The RFIC will offer a number of new initiatives specifically geared toward the RFIC industry for the first time in 2014. First, a new two-page industry brief format is introduced that allows the latest state-of-the-art RFIC design results to be presented, without requiring die photos and detailed schematics. There are a number of workshops focused on power amplifier (PA) design including: silicon and GaN PAs for RF and mm-wave applications, highly-efficient power amplifiers and smart transmitters, power amplifiers for software defined radios, and critical supporting circuit designs such as GaN-based power supply modulators. Workshops focused on some of the emerging technologies in RP transceivers include techniques for handling interference and self-interference, RF and wideband data-converters for transmitters and receivers, and EMC!EMI-aware design practices for reducing coupling and interference in integrated circuits.
