      The goal Introducing characteristics and engineering concepts of microwave passive components and subsystems. Training students to design microwave passive components and subsystems. Training students to analyze and design microwave passive subsystems using s-parameters.
      The outcome Students will gain skills to design microwave passive components, by the use of contemporary CAD programs, through the following phases: design of the ideal and real model, layout of the printed circuit board, verification of the laboratory prototype by measurements.
