About Course

RF Communication System Design- Analog and Digital

Radio Frequency Communication System Design is an interdisciplinary course that takes students from basic radio system design through construction and demonstration of a Quadrature Amplitude Modulated radio. Students will learn the fundamentals of signal processing, pulse shaping for reduce bandwidth, noise and maximum capacity of a system. In addition, students will build microwave components such as couplers, power dividers and phase shifters using transmission lines and will also have the opportunity to build active devices such as mixers, power amplifiers, and low noise amplifiers (LNAs).
Prerequisites: Under graduate signals and system, and at least one course in undergraduate circuits and electromagnetics.
