PREPERM® On AWR Design Forum Tour

Want to know how to improve antenna performance? Join the PREPERM® and AWR Design Forum tour! The AWR Design Forum (ADF) is an annual, free-to-attend event which brings together the NI AWR software community of users to learn, network, and collaborate on the design issues facing today's microwave/RF circuit/system designers.

We demonstrate how you can improve performance, reduce size and optimize design with RF PCB Design software and the right material choices.

Premix presentation at the events

Why you need new dielectric materials to succeed in the 5G race?

To obtain the envisioned 1000-fold capacity increase of next-generation wireless networks, 5G needs many new frequency bands, smaller cells as well as denser frequency reuse. These requirements put totally new demands on the materials used in the base stations and mobile devices.

Since the material losses increase with increasing frequency, it is not crucial to consider the dielectric losses on Sub-6 GHz frequency bands, but this is not true at mmWaves. A high- and low-loss material, which at 2.4 GHz might give almost the same performance, will be very different at 70 GHz in favor of the low-loss material.

The frequency reuse necessitates improved MIMO antenna systems, which in turn needs materials with stable and tightly controlled dielectric properties as well as consistent performance in all use conditions and good moldability. To achieve this, accurate processes are required in quality control and in characterization of the dielectric properties. Also, material properties at mmWaves is mandatory when designing RF components at these frequencies.

In this presentation, effects of material losses are shown in very concrete ways via industrial examples.

M.Sc. (Chem. Eng), B.Sc. (BA & Econ.) My background is in chemical engineering and business development. I aim to understand my customers’ needs holistically to deliver them a best-fit solution. Even though I am in sales, I try to under-promise and over-deliver. Let’s #makehappen!

Xisheng Cong

Sales Manager, B.Sc (electronic material), M.Sc (optical fiber communication), MBA (project management and marketing)
I have a long working experience in a global telecommunications company. Understanding cultural differences is one of my strengths.  I am constantly searching for new business opportunities for high frequency material  and always willing to take up new challenges. My passion is to develop the optimal solution together with the customers - which makes them happy and satisfied!

Dr. Jan Järveläinen

Business Development Manager, D.Sc. (Tech)
I take care of new business opportunities, such as 5G, radars and EMI shielding, and try to solve challenges related to customer applications. I am also passionate about material measurements, tech blogging and marketing. Previously I have worked as a researcher at Aalto University studying mmWave propagation for 5G scenarios.
