Synopsis

This unit is a study of passive and active electronic components and devices and how they perform at radio and microwave frequencies. Physical RF circuits are to be designed, built and tested in the laboratory and as design projects. Extensive use is made of modern RF simulation and design software.

Objectives

To educate the student about the unique nature of working at RF and microwave frequencies
To give the student the necessary analytical skills to analyse RF and microwave electronic components, circuits and systems
To teach the student to design RF and microwave circuits and systems
To give the student the skills to utilise sophisticated RF and microwave EDA software and to use RF and microwave test equipment to develop RF and microwave electronics
