Project detail


Following the ‘Primer on RF Design’ course, this class focuses on system-level issues. We discuss several important design considerations including noise, non-linearity, distortion, sensitivity and dynamic range and their impact in selecting the appropriate system architecture. The course also covers common receiver architectures including superheterodyne and direct-conversion receivers.


Week 1: Non-linearity in RF Systems

Week 2: Noise and Interference

Week 3: System-level Design

Week 4: Receiver Architectures

Week 5: Selected Topics on Adaptive RF Communications
