19D071MPK - Microwave Passive Circuits
|Microwave Passive Circuits
|Electrical Engineering and Computing
|Type of study
|Lecturer (for classes)
|Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
|Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
|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.
|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.
