PSEC Events

The Council sponsors or operates several events throughout the year. We invite you to participate. Please have a look at our calendar below to see upcoming events.

  • Mentor Nights – We hold several of these events throughout the year at local colleges. It is an opportunity for students to interact with the local engineering community to learn about the breadth of engineering disciplines that are practiced here.
  • Engineering Banquet – Held every year in February during Engineers Week. This is the event where the PSEC presents the Engineering Awards.
  • Engineering Fair – Held every year in February at the Museum of Flight. This is a chance for youngsters to come out and see what engineering is all about and show off their engineering projects.
  • Officers Workshop – Another annual event where the many member societies of the PSEC discuss what we are doing and how we can work together.

The calendar below lists events sponsored by the PSEC and includes the live calendars of several of our member societies.

If you are a PSEC member society and would like to see your events calendar added, please contact the site administrator at webmaster@pseconline.org

  • IEEE - Advanced RF Front-End and Transceiver Systems Design Overview for Carrier Aggregation based 4G/5G Radios 

    Date: August 13, 2019 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM


    Description:

    Abstract:
    Over the past few years, there has been an explosion in the mobile data usage due to increasing number of tablets and smart phones. To support such demand, wider transmission bandwidths are needed, and hence, the technique of Carrier Aggregation (CA) has been introduced in 4G cellular systems. This enables scalable bandwidth expansion beyond the single LTE carrier by aggregating two or more LTE component carriers of similar or different baseband bandwidth, which can be chosen from the same (intra-band) or different (inter-band) 3GPP frequency bands. Furthermore, CA is supported by both FDD and TDD modes, and this offers the optimum flexibility in the way the spectrum is utilized and how the network scheduling is configured. In order to push towards 5G data rates (>1Gbps), leveraging more antennas and transmitting more bits per symbol to increase spectral efficiency requires the use of MIMO and higher-order modulation techniques. This presentation focuses on discussing the RF system architectural challenges for LTE-Advanced and sub-6GHz 5G NR based user equipment (UE) radio, and the resultant increased complexity in the radio due to the use of CA, MIMO, and higher order modulation techniques; furthermore, concurrency and coexistence scenarios with other radio access technologies (RAT) are considered in how they further add to the complexity of the RF frontend and to its linearity requirements.
