El Segundo, California – June 28, 2017
The gift of a seat at the popular Bits to Waves: Building
a Modern Digital Radio in One Day workshop, which features
NI AWR Design Environment, inspired
Wilson Chung, a senior at California Polytechnic University Pomona to produce more than 100
microstrip circuits, including antennas, amplifiers, couplers, phase shifters, and more, for
his senior project. The workshop, presented by Dr. David S. Ricketts, a professor of electrical
engineering at North Carolina State University, is offered at select IEEE conferences throughout
the world and teaches basic theory of modern digital radios as well as the RF circuits and
systems used to build them.
"It was an educational experience for my student to learn, design, build, and fabricate
a piece of PCB circuitry for an RF circuit. It also gave him the opportunity to learn more
about modern RF modem circuits and thus opened more pathways for him," said Gerald Herder,
professor at the Cal Poly Pomona College of Engineering. "Chung and his project partner went
for on-site job interviews for microwave electronics positions immediately after graduation
and both received employment offers."
