[Not offered in 2021]

Credit points: 3
Year: 2021
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Science and Engineering

Wave propagation. Transmission lines: characteristic and input impedance, lossless, lossy and distortionless lines. Smith Chart, impedance matching. Introduction to filter networks, practical frequency responses, terminations, frequency and impedance scaling and transformation of low-pass types to high-pass, band-pass or band-stop types. Butterworth, Chebyshev, Cauer-Chebyshev and Bessel filter types. Passive and active filters including ladder structures, cascaded biquad sections, active ladder simulation and switched capacitor filters. RF filters: coupled resonator LC, helical, cavity, dielectric and ceramic filters. Phase locked loops and their applications. Frequency synthesis.
