Some of the quintessential challenges of our time are finding new energy resources to sustain our consumption while preserving the trickle of resources we have left, reducing the cost of our healthcare using remote health monitoring, environmental sensing to reduce the impact of climate change and producing enough crops while preserving natural resources. Wireless communication systems have been making inroads in addressing some of these challenges. They also enabled a myriad of innovative solutions in the areas of autonomous driving and wideband communications.

In this talk I will review some of the basic concepts in radio frequency (RF) engineering, and present real-world examples of how wireless communication solutions resolve some of the highlighted challenges.



Hyman Shanan is a senior staff design engineer with the Millimeter-Wave Communications Group at Analog Devices, where he is currently involved in the architecture and design of wireless communication systems for satellites, defense, RADAR, land-mobile and low-power radios. He is also involved in the design of advanced RF frequency synthesizers and oscillators. While working at Analog Devices, he received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the National University of Ireland, Cork. Dr. Shanan has over 20 issued and pending US patents for the design and architecture of wireless communication systems. He was awarded the Analog Devices Innovation Award, the Analog Devices Performance Award, the Analog Devices Ireland Technical Conference Best Paper Award and the IEEE AT&T Labs Student Enterprise and Outstanding Design Awards. He serves as a reviewer for various IEEE journals and conferences.
