ECE 435: Microwave & RF Engineering

Prerequisite: ECE 335

General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology

Review of transmission line theory. The concept of impedance transformation is presented. The characteristics of coaxial lines, waveguides, and microstrip lines are studied in detail. Propagation and impedance properties of these lines are derived. Smith charts are used for designing matching and tuning circuits. The use of S-parameters and the analysis of multi-port networks are presented. Passive multi-port devices such as microwave power couplers and dividers are described. The fundamentals of microwave and RF filters and resonators are discussed, and their implementation using microstrip lines and waveguides is also presented.
