WMC - Full-day Workshop - Monday June 2nd 2014 - 8.00am-5.00pm - Room 21
Sponsor: ARFTG and MTT-11 Microwave Measurements
Behavioral modeling is a topic that has been researched already extensively, surely in the power amplifier areas. Different techniques have been presented and discussed in the scientific world, like large-signal S-parameters, Volterra approaches, envelope domain etc. Meanwhile some trademark solutions are changing the way industry looks at behavioral models. But still there is a lot of confusion about the role and positioning
of the different techniques.
Recently these behavioral modeling tools moved also to other areas in the wireless community, such as energy harvesting and wireless power transfer devices, software defined radio, or in a more general sense mixed-signal devices. To realize a meaningful acceptance of behavioral modeling techniques, the models should be easy to use, easy to extract and should describe the behavior of the devices and systems in the best
way possible, while being simple and intuitive.
Presently behavioral modeling seems to be a tool for the happy few who can master the modeling theory, who understands the subtle measurements and who know how to use those models properly in a simulation environment. This is exactly where this workshop fits. The workshop brings together the modeling approaches, the instrumentation for parameter extraction and the simulation environments. It will position
the different techniques against the application space, explain the capabilities and limitations. It will be possible to discuss these techniques and to have some hands on.
