The ARMMS RF & Microwave Society is an independent professional society comprised of individuals with an interest in the design, production and measurement of devices and products operating at RF and Microwave frequencies. Two meetings are held each year in the style of a small conference and associated exhibition.  A wide range of technical papers is presented and proceedings are distributed to each delegate.  A highlight of each meeting is the Society dinner, which provides an invaluable opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues.

The Society would like to thank  RFMW and Qorvo for sponsoring the November 2019 meeting:
