ENEL 613 - RF Power Amplifiers & Transmitters - Winter 2016

This is an advanced level graduate course, dealing with the theory, design and optimizationf of RF power amplification systems for wireless and satellite communication applications. The course provides a details treatment of linear and non-linear characterization and modeling of amplifiers/transmitters from device to system level perspective. Theory of operation as well as design techniques of linear amplifiers (class A, AB, B, C), switchign mode amplifiers (class E, D and F) and balanced amplifiers are presented. Linearization and power efficiency enhancements techniques of power amplifiers/transmitters are also covered.
This course may not be repeated for credit.
