Direct RF technology is setting a new standard for performance with modern wireless communication and electronic warfare systems by enabling SWaP-C, enhancing system capabilities with higher data rates, and increasing flexibility in signal processing. However, the advantages of direct RF processing may also mean trade-offs in your design architecture.

In this seminar, the second in a series of three, you’ll learn more about the advantages of direct RF compared with traditional superheterodyne systems; where direct RF is today and its technology roadmap; and the possibilities direct RF presents to the embedded industry.
