The purpose of this course is to teach senior students in electrical engineering the basic principles of radio-frequency circuit design and to illustrate how such circuits are used in communication systems.
CAD Software (HP Microwave and RF design systems) is used in the laboratory.
Design, construct, match, and test a crystal oscillator and a radio-frequency amplifier operating at approximately 50 MHz; noise measurements; laboratory notebook required; instrumentation: vector impedance meter, spectrum analyzer, network analyzer, synthesizers.
vector impedance meter, spectrum analyzer, network analyzer, frequency synthesizers.
Engineering Science: 2 credits or 50%
Engineering Design: 2 credits or 50%
The goals are to introduce students to circuits and systems employed for radio communication, and to provide an introduction to methods for analysis, design, and experimental measurement and characterization of communication circuits and systems. This course includes a laboratory section.
A. By the time of Exam No. 1 (after 19 lectures), the students should be able to do the following:
B. By the time of Exam No. 2 (after 36 lectures), the students should be able to do all of the items listed under A, plus the following:
14. Derive the 2-port Z, Y, h, ABCD, or S-parameter matrix for a given network.
C. By the time of the Final Examination (after 41 lectures), the students should be able to do all of the items listed under A and B, plus the following:
33. Understand the definition of Spurious-Free Dynamic Range (SFDR) and determine SFDR for a receiving system. (a)
34. Understand and analyze the operation of a passive switching mixer implemented using 3-winding transformers and diodes. (a)
35. Understand and analyze the operation of active mixers implemented using BJT and MOS transistor switches. (a)
