5 units – Fall Quarter
Lecture: 3 hours
Laboratory: 3 hours
Discussion: 1 hour
Prerequisites: EEC 110A, EEC 130B
The study of Radio Frequency and Microwave theory and practice for design of wireless electronic systems. Transmission lines, microwave integrated circuits, circuit analyis of electromagnetic energy transfer systems, the scattering parameters.
Expanded Course Description:
The focus of this part of the course is on the 3 hours of laboratory per week. Students work in groups of two to analyze, test and design microwave devices and systems. The projects include the following:
Agilent Advanced Design System (ADS) is used for analysis and design of circuits and components.
Engineering Design Statement:
The course teaches analysis and design of R.F. and microwave components such as various types of microwave transmission lines including microwave integrated circuits. Design of matching networks is covered. Each of these topics is covered in the laboratory assignments where design guidelines are given, but not design details.
