Many devices rely on wireless interconnectivity. This course forms a five day advanced course that covers RF and microwave hardware design, at the theory, circuit, modelling, layout and enclosure levels, to produce working hardware designs. The course includes both theoretical and circuit aspects, as well as the practical considerations of real components and circuit layout.

Key subjects covered

Course scope

The course will describe the theory, device models and design techniques required to develop most of the major building blocks in modern RF and microwave transmitters and receivers. Subject areas include: passive and active component models, impedance matching, small signal amplifier design, mixers, low noise oscillator design, filter design, PCB design, EMC aspects, enclosures and shielding, modulation and power amplifier design. The course also provides an opportunity, through laboratory classes, to apply this theory to the design and construction of low noise amplifiers, low phase noise oscillators and filters using either lumped or distributed circuit techniques

Who should attend

Graduate engineers who are new to the field of RF and microwave engineering or engineers who require a broadening of their design skills. The course encompasses both lumped element and distributed transmission line design techniques. The course assumes a basic knowledge of analogue circuit design.
