This 1-credit-hour, 5-week course covers the fundamentals of RF design. It is designed as a first course for students or engineers with a limited background in high-frequency electronics. Engineers that need to understand "RF language" and gain a working knowledge of critical RF concepts will benefit from taking this course. Students in this course will learn basic RF tools and design principles.
By the end of this course, students will understand important RF concepts and how these are related to the design of practical RF blocks.
Note: This course, Primer on RF Design, is an essential prerequisite to the two other courses in this series: RF System Design and RF Design : Passive and Active Components. Learners should plan to complete Primer on RF Design before enrolling in RF System Design or RF Design: Passive and Active Components.
