This is an experiential learning course.
CMPE Special Content Elective
EE Elective - Adv Level Lab
Experimental Course Offered: Spring 2010, Spring 2015, Spring 2017
ECE 31100 or equivalent
Requisites by Topic:
Basic electromagnetics; basic transmission line theory
This course is focused on the fundamentals of RF engineering. It starts by discussing the basics of RF system-level design particularly for wireless systems. Subsequently, it reviews transmission line fundamentals followed by impedance matching techniques and microwave networks. The course continues by covering design techniques of RF amplifiers, microwave filters, mixers, and oscillators. Noise and interference issues are also introduced. The course also includes a discussion on adaptive RF electronics.
