Objectives:After successfully completing this module, students will be able to characterize the fundamental processes in the high-frequency and microwave fields, as well as the associated circuit technology and their applications. They have gained an understanding of the most important passive and active components of high frequency technology and know the methods to specify them. Moreover, they understand the architecture of modern transceiver circuits and can describe them (e.g., by noise figure, intermodulation, bandwidth, ...).
Course contents:RF applications, passive components of high-frequency engineering, noise in RF circuits, signal-to-noise ratio, noise figure, conduction theory, conduction and passive linear microwave circuits, scattering parameters, nonlinear behavior, frequency conversion and mixing, transmitter and receiver architectures (superheterodyne receivers, Zero -IF, Low-IF), electromagnetic radiation, antennas, application of HF simulation tools (eg ADS, CST, Feko)
