Introduction to radio frequency systems. RF design, specifications, S-parameters, gain, noise, stability, matching concepts, small signal amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, power amplifiers, system-level design. Students use CAD tools such as ADS and other industrial tools to design class project.
After completing the course, the student will be able to
• describe different components of a RF system and their principles of operation,
• Apply different RF concepts and techniques used in RF/microwave design,
• Design RF/VLSI passive structures (impedance matching networks, combiners, etc.),
• Design number of active RF/VLSI circuits,
• Use commercial circuit simulator tools (ADS, Cadence),
• Use commercial (IBM Corp.) component libraries and transistor models,
• Use commercial EM solver (Momentum), and
• Design a class project.
