▣ Date: 2:00 ? 3:00 pm, Friday, October 27, 2006

▣ Venue: Wooribyul Seminar room in KAIST Electrical Engineering B/D (E-3)

▣ Speaker: Charlie Persico, Senior Vice President of Qualcomm

▣ Organizer: KAIST Department of Electronic and Computer Science, BK21 group - Department of Electronic and Computer Science

▣ Point of Contact: Professor Hyun-Wook Park (82-42-869-3466), BK project office (82-42-869-8502)

▣ Title: Introduction of Qualcomm and Future Directions in RFIC Design for Mobile Phone Applications

Abstract:

There are several challenges (and opportunities) in the future for integration, performance and cost for RFIC design in mobile handsets.  The current level of integration relies on a total system solution to deliver cost effective and highly integrated chipset. The market needs on low end are for low cost to support emerging markets. On the mid and high end needs focus on size (sleek, stylish phones) and performance (data rates, battery life, roaming). In addition, handset manufacturers NRE and time to market pressures need to be addressed.

These market forces will require innovation in:

- passive component elimination (eg SAW filters)

- power reduction

- multimode-multiband, configurable radio"s

- concurrent operation with other wireless peripherals

- mobile handset receive and transmit diversity
