Today, Jake Schodowski started his job at Atlanta Micro, an up-and-coming local company that specialized in RF devices and designs (up to 40 GHz). Jake performed some excellent work with NASA and nGimat on a space-based Ka-band array design. It should be noted that nGimat (pronounced N-Gee-Mat, short for engineered nano-materials) was a GT-based startup in the 1990s based on applied nano-materials.
The GTPG is continuing work with mm-wave arrays, although this is becoming an increasingly difficult area to staff due to the short “shelf-life” of RF engineers with mm-wave experience. Industry cannot get enough of these types of students at the moment.
