Iíve been following the development of LTE and LTE-A for some time, and suggested that, as more designers need to work with MIMO, it would be a good topic for a webinar. Well, recognizing the need for more information on LTE, Aeroflex took me up on it. Shusina Ngwa, Ph.D., Product Manager, Aeroflex has agreed to answer our questions on the topic.
To flesh out the story, I also asked Chris Pearson, of 4G Americas, to participate. Iím hoping he will fill us in on where LTE is at and what the enabling technologies mean going forward.
So, how close are we to achieving LTE-A? What challenges are designers facing in terms of MIMO? What tests are required during development and before deployment?

These are some of my questions. I hope you will join us live on September 26th at noon eastern time. Please come with your questions so we can get to the bottom of where LTE is at, and how we can ensure reliable, LTE communications in our networks. Letís take advantage of having some LTE experts in the room. Or at least, virtually in the room!
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for todayís commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
