TC-20 HF-VHF-UHF Technologies and Applications Committee

Mission Statement

RF and microwave engineers use different components (e.g., MOSFETs rather than GaAsFETs), and RF engineering has a number of unique applications such as communications, RF heating (plasma), medical imaging (MRI), HF radar, ligthting, wireless power transfer and RF ID.
However, many techniques (power amplifiers, low-noise receivers, couplers, signal synthesis) are analogous and wireless communication is a major application for both.
Equally important is the attitude that the application of theory has to be tempered by practical limits imposed by stray capacitance and lead inductances. The interests of microwave and RF engineers thus have much in common.
MTT-20 provides a focal point for work that was previously scattered among the publications of seven or more different IEEE societies and numerous trade journals.
IEEE publications have the advantage of peer-review, wide dissemination, and long-term availability.

Field of Interest

* Technology and applications with hardware below 1 GHz


The Origins
The Origins

The IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) is a transnational society with more than 11,000 members and 150 chapters worldwide. The Society promotes the advancement of RF and microwave theory and its applications from a few MHz to THz. One of the 27 Technical Committees is MTT-17, in charge of HF/VHF/UHF technology.
