( Information carriers ) Resonant Circuits ( LC, sinusoids ) Impedance Matching ( Z IN =Z LOAD ) Amplifiers ( Classes: A, B, AB, C, and D ) Filters and Mixers ( LP, BP, …, f shifters: keys to radio ) Transmission Lines ( Characteristic impedances ) Oscillators and Synthesizers ( Reference frequencies ) PLLs, VCOs, ( Keys to clean signals ) Modulation ( AM, FM, PM ) Directional Power Meters ( VSWR, two-way signals ) 3 Swartz 05/12/29 ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Lecture 1: ECE 488 Topics (Cont.) Impedance Inverters ( Lumped and other types ) Balanced Amplifiers ( Up the power with parallel units ) 2-Ports ( Z, Y, S, and other parameters ) Noise ( Sources, noise figures ) TR Switches and Antennas ( Radar applications ) TV ( NTSC and HDTV ), and really big Radars Ethics ( Standards of right and wrong ) Baluns and Waveguides ( Some samples ) Detectors and Demodulators ( AM, FM, PM ) Digital Transmitters and Receivers ( The new wave ) 4 Swartz 05/12/29 ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Lecture 1: Should Digital Engineers take 488? An Intel story! High-speed digital circuits exhibit “RF effects”! Between chips! Inside the chips! RF effects: Delays – the speed of light matters Pulse dispersion (distortion) Signal reflections Digital engineers are needed for these RF circuits: Designing “digital” radio receivers Designing “digital” radio transmitters Designing “digital” filters Designing “digital” compression circuits (HDTV) Remember, the real world is analog! 5 Swartz 05/12/29 ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Lecture 1: ECE 488 Logistics Recommended Textbook: Radio-Frequency Electronics (2 nd Printing) by Jon Hagen · Reprinted versions available from Cornell Campus Bookstore · Originals from amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, etc. Lectures: 205 Thurston Hall , MWF: 11:15 – 12:05 Labs: 239 Phillips Hall , Monday: 1:25 – 4:25 , 6:30-9:30pm , Wednesday : 1:25 – 4:25pm First Lab: Monday, February 2 : 1:25 – 4 :25pm Course Web Site: blackboard.cornell.edu Missed Handouts Special Handouts Announcements Homework solutions 6 Swartz 05/12/29 ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Lecture 1: Credits Dr. Jon Hagen : for the textbook, extra problems.
