Projections for 5G anticipate continued growth in the near future, especially in infrastructure space. In last two years, the first wave of expansion resulted in robust growth in the handset space. In fact, 570 million, 5G smartphones were shipped last year. Handset manufacturers such as Apple and Samsung benefitted from this expansion the most. In the second wave, other areas are expected to grow. High speed internet connection to home with 5G is one such area. Proliferation of 5G is expected in other vertical markets as well such as PCs, tablets, smart cars, smart factories and more. In this webinar, Amkor will present the current market, applications, challenges and value contributions from the packaging perspective to make 5G projections a reality.

CTO & 5G Wireless Technologist – SiTune Corporation
Marzieh has been actively involved in the development of science and technology in the field of Wireless communication for the past 18 years. She has authored and co-authored numerous papers and patents with novel fundamental ideas to improve the performance of wireless networks by designing new protocols in the medium access layers as well as new hardware implementation techniques that support and help the higher layer distribution algorithms to attain lower latency and higher reliability. This includes her PhD Thesis, papers and patents while working as a scientist and CTO as well as CPO at SiTune corporation. She has acted as Journal reviewer, Book co-author and Teaching assistant during her graduate studies and Co-founded SiTune in 2007 during her PhD years.
Marzieh has helped in developing SiTune’s successful commercialized products in terms of architecture design, research and product development. She has directly managed the R&D team and handled patents composition and submission as well as managing projects and partnerships while working on the innovation aspects of the company’s products. She is the chief architect for SiTune’s advanced products such as 5G Transceivers, DPD design for Power Amplifiers, and Full Duplex Design for DOCSIS 3.1 RF Front End. Her PhD work was based on implementation of novel communication protocols for wireless network and cross-layer design for attaining concurrency in wireless spectrum allocation. She worked at Hitachi America in 2011 for a year on protocol development for lowering power consumption in WiFi based monitoring systems. Her work across wireless communication layers from complex physical layer optimization algorithms to meticulous MAC layer protocol resulted in many publications and more than 20 patents.
With the world moving towards AI and machines capable of making tactile decisions, the need for 5G enabled infrastructure and user Equipments is imminent. 5G requires wider bandwidths, higher frequencies, and more signal power support for longer ranges in the sub-6GHz frequencies. This introduces new challenges in terms of RFIC design and manufacturing. With larger signal power requirement and power amplifiers nonlinearity and heat, transceivers should be highly linear and add pre-distortion capabilities while supporting wider bandwidths. This is when more integration is required to reduce cost and to support multiple bands. In this talk, we cover the new trends and how new high performance RFIC solutions are essential in building 5G connected networks.
SiTune Corporation is an innovator of multiple generations of state-of-the-art RF and Mixed signal System on a Chip transceiver solutions for 5G/LTE wireless infrastructure and user equipment market. SiTune products and technology are shifting the paradigm in enabling true deployment of 5G New Radios through offering a rich family of low power transceiver solution. SiTune transceivers IceWings and SnowWings are uniquely differentiated due to their superior feature sets, level of integration and lower power consumption. SnowWingsTM with digital interface and IceWingsTM with analog interface are based on the patented ultra-wide-band Hardware intelligence circuits (HICTM) Technology.
