The objective of this course is to provide learners with a good understanding of fundamental techniques in RF circuits for wireless communications. Analysis and design of a variety of passive RF and microwave circuits, including microstrip line circuits, power dividers, couplers and filters will be discussed.
This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Information and Telecommunication Engineering
- FlexiMasters in Information and Telecommunication Engineering
On completion of the course, the learners should be able to:
Microstrip Line and Network Parameters
Review of transmission line theory. Network parameters such as Y-, Z-, S- and ABCD-matrices. Analysis and design of microstrip line circuits.
Even- and odd-mode analysis of parallel coupled lines. Analysis of Wilkinson power dividers/combiners, branch-line couplers, coupled-line and rat-race couplers.
Distributed-element filters on TEM-wave transmission line. Richards' Theorem and Kuroda identities. Filter design theory on coupled resonators. TEM-wave filter synthesis design. Design and implementation of parallel coupled-line bandpass filters.
For aspiring engineers and Information technologists who wish to improve their knowledge and skills in the broad area of communication engineering.
