Electronic systems and antennas play a critical role in system performance and antenna and microwave design engineers have to balance competing requirements of small form factor, high power delivery, cost and high reliability.

To deliver on these requirements engineers are adopting robust electrical and electronics systems design practices. Topics covered in this webinar: antenna design, microstrip junction analysis, and thermal and voltage breakdown.
