This course provides circuit-level designers with the essential concepts needed to work effectively with high frequency electronics. Participants gain analytical, graphical, and computer-aided techniques to analyze and optimize RF circuits in practical situations. The course addresses linear active circuit design, focusing on stability, bandwidth, and noise considerations.
Upon completing the course, the participant will be able to:
- Describe RF circuit parameters and terminology.
- State the effects of parasitics on circuit performance at RF.
- Use graphical design techniques and the Smith Chart.
- Match impedances and perform transformations.
- Predict RF circuit stability and stabilize circuits.
- Design small signal and low noise RF amplifiers.
Professionals required to work in high frequency domains for the first time, as well as seasoned veterans, will benefit from this comprehensive overview of practical design techniques. An electrical engineering background (or equivalent practical experience) is recommended, as well as a familiarity with complex numbers.
