Henderson Office Phone 972-883-6454 Email Address [email protected] Office Location ECSN 4.620 Office Hours Monday/Wednesday 3 – 4 pm or by appointment Other Information Course TA: TBA Course Pre-requisites, Co-requisites, and/or Other Restrictions EE4368 or equivalent Course Description This course goes beyond an undergraduate RF course to develop the ability to apply RF design fundamentals to a variety of passive and active microwave circuits. Knowledge of the electromagnetic properties of materials, RF diodes, transistors, the Smith chart, high frequency scattering parameters, transmission line analysis and system level computations will be used to design real-world RF and microwave components. Microwave CAD tools will be employed to enhance the understanding between theory and practical application. EERF 6311 RF and Microwave Circuits (3 semester hours) Analysis and design of RF and microwave circuits. Topics include impedance matching, network theory, S-parameters, transmission line media (waveguide, coax, microstrip, stripline, coplanar waveguide, etc.) and passive component design (power dividers, couplers, switches, attenuators, phase shifters, etc.). Industry-standard microwave CAD tools will be used. Student Learning Objectives/Outcomes Objectives Outcomes Ability to analyze and design various RF transmission line media a, b, c Ability to analyze and design RF matching networks for complex impedances a, b Ability to design RF/Microwave passive and active components a, b, c, d, e Ability to create and present a report on a design project d, e, f a.

    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.
