Unformatted text preview: RF Circuit Design Lecture 1 Introduction Course Materials • Textbook, website is currently unavailable, but a CD of all MATLAB files comes with the text. • Windows account for access to MATLAB • PAWS semester book – materials (syllabus, homework and project descriptions) – email (announce HW due dates, test dates, student questions and answers) – grading scale – real time grade book, please monitor grades for accuracy Introduction to RF • RF is short for radio-frequency, describing the “high” frequency nature of the system. • Techniques for analyzing circuits at high frequencies (KVL, KCL) are not accurate! They don’t work! • We need to use a different approach. The tools are important to master before one can design RF circuits. RF applications • wireless communications – cell phone – pocket computers with mobile internet • global positioning systems (GPS) • satellite broadcasting • pc peripherals operating above 1 GHz • wireless LAN’s • high speed computing (bus systems, CPU) Communications Basics • communications is simply to passing of information from one place to another • there a number of things to consider: – information can be analog or digital (EE 3120) – different types of information to send • voice, text (narrow bandwidth) • video (wide bandwidth) • data (atm, credit card) – information must be processed and placed on a carrier...
