Workshop on RF IC and Verilog-A by Cadence

 

 

Dates 10-13 February 2014

Introduction
This is an introductory level 4-day workshop designed for students and engineers who are interested in learning about RF Integrated Circuit (RFIC) Design and modeling using Verilog-A using Cadence EDA tools. Detailed information about the various types of RF analysis techniques and an overview of analog modelling are covered in this workshop.

 

Who should attend?
This workshop assumes basic understanding of electronic circuits. Thus professionals, professors and students involved in RF integrated circuit design should benefit immensely from this course. Moreover a professional designer who wishes to learn about RF IC Design and modeling in Verilog-A can also attend this course.
