The course will introduce three basic building blocks of microwave engineering viz. microwave transmission system, passive circuit components at microwave frequency and microwave active devices. The lectures would try to emphasize the need to understand the blocks in somewhat detail so that key design concepts behind a microwave network are grasped. The course would lay the foundation for further exploring the vast area of microwave engineering analysis and design.
The course will introduce design principles of RF and microwave filters and amplifiers. The lectures would try to emphasize on the need to understand the key concepts behind a microwave filter or amplifier design so that the students themselves can design a microwave filter or an amplifier. The course would lay the foundation for further exploring the vast area of microwave engineering analysis and design.
