About this course:
This course covers the concept, design and application of microwave systems and devices. The course starts with an introduction to the various microwave systems such as wireless communication and networks. It then covers the fundamentals of microwave design, the wave equations, transmission line and waveguides, and microwave network theory (Z/Y/S parameters, ABCD matrices). As part of microwave design, the course covers Smith Chart, CAD design tools, impedance matching techniques, microwave resonators, power splitters, couplers, equivalent circuits of microwave devices, amplifier design, stability, and VSWR requirements.
