Instructor profile Daniel G. Swanson Jr.

Daniel G. Swanson Jr.

SW Filter Design, Boulder, CO, USA

Daniel Swanson received his BSEE degree from the University of Illinois and his MSEE degree from the University of Michigan.

He has designed broadband amplifiers, YIG tuned oscillators, dielectric resonator oscillators, VCO's, thin-film filters, and high Q mechanical filters for various companies.

Mr. Swanson and his partner Robert Wenzel formed SW Filter Design to develop microwave filter design software and robust filter optimization engines for single filter and multiplexer optimization. Their expertise areas include advanced synthesis techniques and EM simulation of planar and 3D filter structures.

Mr. Swanson's filter design activities include military, wireless, and communications applications. He is a fellow of the IEEE and is a past chairman of the MTT-8 Filters and Passive Components Technical Committee. He is on the editorial board for the IEEE MTT-S Transactions and IEEE MTT-S Microwave and Wireless Components Letters. Mr. Swanson is the primary author of Microwave Circuit Modeling Using Electromagnetic Field Simulation, published by Artech House. He has published numerous technical papers, given many workshop and short course presentations, and holds two patents.

Mr. Swanson has been a member of the Continuing Education Institute-Europe faculty since 1998.
