Webinar Overview

Webinar description:
Known by various names, the port tuning design methodology allows rapid tuning and optimization. While usable in nearly any EM analysis to some degree, Sonnet’s perfectly calibrated internal (co-calibrated™) ports allow a designer to tune a layout response with circuit theory speed at nearly full EM accuracy. This technique is demonstrated using Agilent ADS. If you are not yet using this methodology, in one form or another, this presentation is extremely important to see.

Presenter bio:
James Rautio is the president and CEO of Sonnet Software, a company he founded in 1983 and the leading supplier of 3D planar high frequency electromagnetic analysis software. He is an adjunct professor at Syracuse University and a fellow of the IEEE. Dr. Rautio began his career at General Electric, working at the Valley Forge Space division and Syracuse Electronics Laboratory. At GE he developed microwave design and measurement software and designed microwave circuits on alumina and GaAs. He received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Cornell, a master’s in systems engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Syracuse University.
