Learning experience and innovation walk hand in hand during either the daily mission or a specific job; it is part of an innovation culture triggered by something in your genes and your mind, sometimes 24 hours a day.

Ampleon proudly looks back on 50 years of leadership in RF Power and the many innovations during this time. As such, the company has always supported 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 European Microwave Symposium 2020 Student Design Competition in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The final date of the day of our Student Design Competition is not known yet. It will take place on Tuesday 12 or Wednesday 13 January 2021.

This competition is open to all students who are interested in the power amplifier concept and wish to participate.

For more information about the competition , visit the official EuMW page or download the competition brochure. Deadline to submit is 1 December 2020.
