ECE 3113 A2009 Syllabus 2 Course Objectives: This course is designed to provide students with the basic principles of radio frequency (RF) circuit design. It concentrates on such topics as fundamental concepts of transmission line theory, high frequency circuit behavior, designing tuning and matching networks and power flow considerations for analog systems as encountered in cell phones, base stations, transceivers (Bluetooth), and wireless LAN (WLAN) equipment. After reviewing equivalent circuit representations for passive components, RF diodes, BJTs, FETs, and their respective input/output impedance behavior, the course examines the difference between lumped and distributed parameter systems. Key concepts such as characteristic impedance, standing waves, reflection coefficients, insertion loss, and the scattering or S-parameters will be explained and demonstrated. Within the context of distributed circuit theory, the course will then focus on the
