Course Syllabus Course Information Course number EERF 6395-001 Course title RF/Microwave Systems Engineering Term Fall 2011 Days & Times Mon/Wed 2:30 – 3:45 pm Classroom ECSN 2.120 Professor Contact Information Professor Dr. Randall E. Lehmann Phone number 972-883-6429 Email [email protected] Office location ECSN4.616 Office hours Tue/Thur 3:00-4:00 pm or by appointment Other information Course TA to be announced Course Pre-requisites, Co-requisites, and/or Other Restrictions EE4368 or equivalent Course Description This course will review various RF and microwave systems, such as cellular, point-to-point radio, LMDS, satellite, RFID and RADAR. Topics include: system architectures, noise & distortion, antennas & propagation, transmission lines & network analysis, active & passive components, modulation techniques and specification flowdown. Students will work in teams to design a radar or communications system, including preparing a high level specification and flowing down design parameters to each RF component of the transmitter and receiver, locating suitable commercially available components and then performing a complete transmitter or receiver analysis of the system using CAD tools. Student Learning Objectives/Outcomes Objectives Outcomes Ability to apply fundamental RF principles to design and analysis a,b,c Ability to analyze how noise and distortion affects system performance a,b,c Ability to create practical system block diagrams or architectures c Ability to develop realistic specification flow down for an RF system c Ability to analyze performance of cascaded RF components b,c,d,e Ability to communicate the results of design and analysis of an RF system f a. an ability to understand concepts in theory of electrical engineering b. an ability to understand concepts in applications of electrical engineering Course Syllabus Page 1

    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.
