Microwave photonics makes possible to have functions in microwave systems that are complex or even not directly possible in the radiofrequency domain and also creates new opportunities for telecommunication networks. Attendees will explore last trends in microwave local oscillators, photonic-based microwave frequency generation, conversion, filtering, routing and beamforming and optical interconnects, focusing on the use of hybrid integration to combine different material platforms.

Technology Explainer

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
