This course covers the RFIC design process focusing on the RF/microwave portion of RFIC. An overview of digital circuits and digital signal processing will be given along with semi-conductor fabrication, device models, and RF/microwave design techniques using a typical SiGe process. Part of the course will involve student design projects using a CAD software to design amplifiers, mixers, etc.
