ECE 44100 - Distributed Parameter SystemsLecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3 Professional Attributes
Normally Offered: Each Fall
Transient and steady state behavior of transmission lines; wave guides, antennas, propagation, noise, microwave sources, system design.
To introduce the student to the main factors that must be considered in communication system design, apart from lumped circuit analysis, and modulation and information theory.
