ELEN422 - RF/Microwave Engineering II
Course Code: ELEN422 Course ID: 4609 Credit Hours: 4 Level: Undergraduate
This course expands upon the knowledge gained in ELEN421 RF/Microwave Engineering I. It introduces active microwave components and the cascading of components to form microwave circuits, sub-systems, and systems. Topics include amplifiers, mixers, receivers, frequency synthesizers, modulators, wireless systems and typical figures of merit such as gain, noise figure and third order intercept point. At the end of this course, you will have an understanding of the key concepts and basic theories associated with microwave circuits and systems. NOTE: This course requires the student to purchase additional materials that are not covered by the book grant. Please refer to the Course Materials section for additional details. (Prerequisite: ELEN421)
