Dr. Karl F. WarnickCheif Scientist and Founder
Karl invented the core adaptive analog beamforming technologies at the heart of Linear Signal’s Ad-A-Beam™ family of semiconductor products and leads Linear Signal’s smart antenna technologies development. Karl is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Brigham Young University. He and his colleagues at BYU are world leaders in smart antenna (array and array feed) technologies for radio astronomy—which has many similar problems to those confronting SatCom. Their antennas have been installed on some of the world’s largest antennas including NRAO facilities in Green Bank and Arecibo. Dr. Warnick is an expert in low noise, high gain antenna technologies and in beamforming algorithms. Karl is a graduate of Brigham Young University and the University of Illinois at Champaign where he completed his PhD.
