- General Description of a Receiving and Transmitting System.
- Circuit Design
- Electrical Filters and Impedance Matching Networks. Low Noise Rf Amplifiers.
- Oscillators and Rf Power Sources. Mixers.
Analysis and design of RF circuits and systems for communication, with an emphasis on CMOS monolithic implementation for which nonlinear response must be included. Transceiver architectures, analog and digital modulators, radio-frequency mixers, voltage-controlled oscillators and noise considerations, frequency synthesizers and other advanced components for telecommunication circuits.
The course incudes labs that are designed to strengthen concepts from class with actual examples. Project – can involve literature survey and design of a RF building block (PLL, mixer/PA, LNA/mixer, etc). Circuit designs will be simulated by computer tools as ADS and Virtuoso.
