ECE 595D - RF and Microwave Wireless ComponentsLecture Hours: 3 Lab Hours: 1 Credits: 4
Experimental Course Offered: Spring 2008 and Spring 2009
Prerequisites: ECE 441 or graduate standing Concurrent Prerequisites: FOR SPRING 2008, STUDENTS MUST ALSO REGISTER FOR ECE 595E
This course is an introduction to the high frequency portion of wireless systems. The course will utilize both electromagnetic and circuit theory combined with a measurement laboratory to give students a grasp of the concepts necessary to understanding high frequency wireless systems. Microwave software will be used to design components focusing on the antennas, passive components, active circuits, and packaging of wireless systems. Noise, propagation, and modulation will also be introduced to put the relevance of the component design in the context of a wireless system.
