Learning, experience, and innovation walk hand in hand. Innovation is neither a daily mission nor a specific job; it is a culture triggered by something in your genes and by parts of your mind, sometimes for 24 hours a day.

Ampleon proudly looks back on 50 years of leadership in RF Power and many innovations, and as such always supports innovative studies and students in their professional education. Being a student in electrical engineering you are about to take the first step of entering the great world of designing, creating and realizing, or in short: innovating.

We would like to support ambitious students by giving them a platform to share their innovative ideas in the field of high power RF circuits and systems.

Therefore, we are pleased to sponsor the Thrust 2 (Wideband Power Amplifier Biasing Network Design) of the Student Design Competition of the European Microwave Symposium 2019 in Paris. It will be carried out on Tuesday 1st October – 13:50 to 17:50 in the exhibition hall room A.

This competition is open to all students who wish to participate and are interested in the power amplifier concept. Students are free to use any topology, but they need to meet a given set of specifications. The winner will be the student whose network demonstrates the widest operating bandwidth.

For more information about the competition, visit the official EuMW page or download the competition brochure.
