School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Cornell University ECE 4880: RF Systems Fall 2015 Lecture 08/31/2015 Reading Assignments: 1. T. H. Lee, The Design of CMOS Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits , 2 nd Ed , Cambridge, 2004. Chap. 3 Lecture Flow: Three topics for electromagnetic review: LC resonator for impedance analysis Conjugate impedance match From Maxwell equations to the distributed and lumped transmission lines RLC resonators Maxwell’s equations are the physical truth describing the geometrical aspects of the electric and magnetic field profiles, subject to the boundary conditions and sources (net charge, current and magnetic dipole). Circuits, as in simulation program with an integrated circuit emphasis (SPICE), are topological descriptions of the voltage and current of the circuit nodes (integration of the equi-potential planes as the Maxwell’s equation solution, which will become clearer in the plane wave propagation example). R, L and C are 0D, 2-terminal circuit elements, when the physical implementation can be approximated by the topological description of two circuit nodes: V = ZR or v = iR i L j dt di L v L j Z L v C j dt dv C i C j Z C 1 Passive elements are very often used in RF design for filtering, impedance match and resonating circuits.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
