RF System Design
Learning Objective:After successfully completing this class, students will be able to
- Describe and articulate the basic design principles of RF modules and transceivers.
- Describe and articulate common transceiver architectures.
- Use tools and analysis techniques to estimate the impact of non-linear effects, noise and interferences on transceivers.
