In this course, students examine RF and microwave circuits appropriate for wireless communications and radar sensing. The course emphasizes the theoretical and experimental aspects of micro-strip design of highly integrated systems. Matrix analysis and computer-aided design techniques are introduced and used for the analysis and design of circuits. Circuits are designed, fabricated, and tested, providing a technically stimulating environment in which to understand the foundational principles of circuit development. Couplers, modulators, mixers, and calibrated measurements techniques are also covered.

Course prerequisites: 

525.423 Principles of Microwave Circuits or 525.420 EM Transmission Systems.
