EE 60558 - Section 01: Microwave Circuit Desgn & Meas (CRN 12135)
Long Title: Microwave Circuit Design and Measurement

Course Description:
This course is an introduction to microwave circuit design and analysis techniques, with particular emphasis on applications for modern microwave communication and sensing systems. An integrated laboratory experience provides exposure to fundamental measurement techniques for device and circuit characterization at microwave frequencies. Students will develop an enhanced understanding of circuit design and analysis principles as applied to modern microwave circuits, as well as become familiar with design techniques for both hand analysis and computer-aided design. An appreciation for basic measurement techniques for characterization of microwave devices, circuits and systems through laboratory experiments will also be developed. Fall.

Instructor's Description of Course » Fay, Patrick » EE  60558 - Section 01:  Microwave Circuit Desgn & Meas (CRN 12135)
This section presents the instructor's preliminary design of the course. It is intended to help students gain a general sense of what the course will be like.
Course Objectives
Learn circuit design techniques for high frequency electronic circuits typical of modern wireless communications and sensing systems.
Become familiar with laboratory characterization of devices and circuits at high frequencies. This is quite different than oscilloscope-based methods.
Learn to use computer-aided design software for the design of high-frequency circuits.
Design, build, and test a high-frequency circuit design in the lab.
