5 units – Winter Quarter
Lecture: 3 hours
Laboratory: 3 hours
Discussion: 1 hour
Prerequisites: EEC 132A
Passive RF and microwave device analysis, design, fabrication, and testing for wireless applications. RF and microwave filter and coupler design. Introductory analysis and design of RF and microwave transistor amplifiers.
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:
Analysis and design based on use of “Touchstone” and in-house programs.
Engineering Design Statement:
The course teaches design and synthesis of RF components including lowpass RF filters, directional couples and bandpass RF filters utilizing microstrip media. Introductory analysis and design of dielectric resonator based components. Corresponding laboratory projects are given.
