ECE 3113: Introduction to RF Circuit Design

ECE 3113: Introduction to RF Circuit Design A Term 2013


Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Worcester Polytechnic Institute Prof. Reinhold Ludwig Last update: October 10, 2013 Calendar | Weekly Schedule | Projects | Homework | Exams

ECE 3113:

This course is designed to provide students with the basic principles of radio frequency (RF) circuit design. It concentrates on such topics as fundamental concepts of transmission line theory, high frequency circuit behavior, designing tuning and matching networks and power flow considerations for analog systems as encountered in cell phones, base stations, transceivers (Bluetooth), and wireless LAN (WLAN) equipment.
