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 active RF and microwave circuits, including detectors, mixers, frequency multipliers, control circuits and RF receiver 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:
Detectors and Mixers
Detector operating theory. Detector sensitivity. Detector circuits. Balanced, double-balanced and image-reject mixers. Impedance at the fundamental and harmonic frequencies. Single-gate and dual-gate FET mixers.
Passive multiplier using diodes. Diode multiplier and harmonic generation circuits. Active multipliers using FETs. Balanced FET doublers. PIN switches. Single-pole double-throw switches. Switched-line phase shifters. Loaded-line phase shifters. Attenuators.
For aspiring engineers and Information technologists who wish to improve their knowledge and skills in the broad area of communication engineering.
