! Target audience: ! Graduate students in RF/analog IC/system/algorithm design fields; ! Design/test engineers in the industry; ! Thoroughly cover relevant fundamentals: ! classical materials covered in standard textbooks ! topics that are not well discussed in publications but are important to fundamental understanding; ! Somewhere between a control system course and an analog circuit design course; ECE264D Course Info: Page 3 ! Cover graduate level research topics: ! Goal: after taking this course, you are ready to do synthesizer related research; ! Recent and latest research papers will be referenced; ! Cover practical aspects; ! Important to both practicing engineers and graduate researchers; ECE264D RF Frequency Synthesizers © 2009 G. Zhang
