Course Description:

Design, fabrication, and testing of active RF and microwave devices. These devices include detectors, power and low-noise amplifiers, local oscillators, frequency multipliers, mixers, and a culminating assignment to design asuperheterodyne receiver. The theory covered to develop and characterize these devices include impedance matching, scattering parameters, quality factor and bandwidth, stability, gain, noise figure, and nonlinear effects. Students will become proficient in simulating designs using Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS).
