RaMP: RF and Microwave Packaging conference, 16th April 2015 at the Weetwood Hall Conference Centre – Leeds

November 29, 2014

One Day Technical Seminar - RaMP

Following the sucess of RaMP in Edinburgh in 2012 and San Diego in 2014, IMAPS-UK in partnership with IMAPS-US & IMAPS-Europe is pleased to announce RaMP 2015, a one-day Conference on the topic of Packaging of RF and Microwave devices, hosted at the Weetwood Hall Conference Centre, Leeds, United Kingdom.   In addition, there will be an “RF/HF Design, Test & Verification Workshop” hosted by the University of Leeds on the 15th April, which delegates of RaMP can also register to attend. Further details on this and other co-located events will be added to our website shortly.

RF components and systems present significant and unique challenges. Careful considerations over substrate, materials and processes are required in order to meet cost, power, thermal, signal integrity, operation and performance specifications. The continual requirements to improve these parameters as well as the introduction of novel techniques and applications at ever expanding frequency ranges are putting increasing demands on design and packaging engineers.

This seminar will bring together engineering and scientific experts from the worlds of academia and industry to discuss the latest RF and microwave packaging technologies and applications as well as a platform to highlight current commercial issue and needs.

Summary of Technical Programme:

RaMP Technical Conference will feature Keynote talks and technical presentations on the latest developments, technologies and capabilities, in addition to a high-impact session and poster displays from UK research. The schedule is also designed to provide ample opportunity for networking with fellow delegates from leading organisations and institutions and to allow time to review the tabletop displays from exhibiting Companies. The four Session topics will include: Design Modelling & Test, Technologies, Materials & Applications:
