Radio Frequency and Microwave Techniques for Wireless Systems

Course Description

This course deals with the basic RF and microwave circuit design techniques for receivers and transmitters used in modern wireless analog and digital communication systems. The distributed circuitry theory is studied including transmission line, impedance transformation, impedance matching, smith chart, S-parameters, filters, couplers, mixers, oscillators, low noise amplifiers and so forth. The study also includes linear and nonlinear microwave circuitry simulation together with the elementary RF/microwave measurement techniques using scalar and vector network analyzers. The course objective allows the students to acquire the basic engineering technique and ability to design and; analyze the RF and microwave circuits using modern high frequency simulation softwares as wells as advanced RF and microwave testers.
