Webinar Overview

With the increasing adoption of millimeter wave RF communications and near terabit-speed optical communications, silicon germanium (SiGe) technologies are in greater demand today. What strengths does SiGe offer above RF CMOS or SOI technologies? This webinar will explore several different markets, including 5G communications, RADAR, LIDAR, optical communications and high-speed copper interfaces, to understand why they are increasingly adopting SiGe again.
