We are currently under intense pressure to deliver hardware within very tight schedule constraints. Unfortunately, this means we will have to temporarily suspend the RF and Microwave Courses until further notice.
If you would like to be placed on the list to be notified when future courses are available, please send us an e-mail and we'll add you to our list.
Thank you for your patience, and we hope to see you at a future course!

This 3 day* course is an introduction to the exciting field of RF and Microwaves. It is intended for engineers, managers and technicians who need to be introduced to the particular aspects of RF and Microwave signals and the associated testing and measurement procedures. Includes hands on lab exercises utilizing common equipment and test setups.
*This 3 day course includes 1 day of RF measurement lab exercises. If conditions exist where test equipment is unavailable during the scheduled course dates, the course will be shortened to 2 days for $1150.
This is a 3 1/2 day course covering many aspects of RF and microwave receivers from a system design viewpoint. Understand the receiver requirements and how to flow the requirements to circuit design level and back. A must for anyone involved in specifications, receiver design, RF circuit design, and microwave system development. The material applies to all types of receiver design, from commercial wireless designs to defense-related RF and microwave systems. An example receiver design will be followed throughout the course and includes hands on use of computer software to aid the development process.
There are at least 10 classes of RF Power Amplifiers, and several combinations of these classes. This 2-day course provides a detailed explanation of the various classes of RF Power Amplifiers, and where each class is used in today's wireless designs. Amplifier Classes A through S are defined and clearly explained, including the advantages, disadvantages, applications, and circuit topologies for each Class. If you are involved in using or designing RF Power Amplifiers for today's wireless designs, then this course will help you use the right Class of RF Power Amplifier for the right application.
This is an introductory course in actual design, providing what is needed to design competitive devices for the wireless field. It covers fundamental principles and techniques essential for the linear design of matching circuits, filters, and amplifiers. Students alternate between lectures and hands-on simulations of the circuit techniques presented, providing them actual design experience. Without this course, an engineer could spend years before acquiring the design perspective to be gained in just 5 days of this training.
In this short course the fundamentals of analysis, design, and modeling of phase lock loops will be covered without intimidating mathematics. Phase noise and how it affects system performance, for both analog and digital modulation formats will be discussed. Phase lock loop frequency synthesis finds uses in a myriad of wireless applications - from local oscillators for receivers and transmitters to high performance RF test equipment. The various components that make up the phase lock loop design; including oscillators (crystal, voltage controlled), dividers, phase detectors will be examined and interaction among the various pieces will be discussed. Real world problems such as power supply noise, shielding, grounding and isolation will be covered throughout the course.

We have received many requests from people who were not able to attend our most recent Wireless Design Courses. So we have decided to offer the option to purchase the course notes for some of our standard courses. The lecture materials themselves are very good quality. However, some of the lecture notes do not have the wording around them as in a text book to explain all the information that is provided in the classroom. What we will do is sell the course materials, and include up to 1 hour of phone consultation with our instructors along with the course materials. The phone consultation would be provided in case you would like us to answer any questions about the notes. Our pricing would be as follows:
Course notes are copyrighted and cannot be copied and/or distributed without our permission.
Course Notes: $250.00 (Includes 1 hour of phone consultation, and Lecture Notes). Shipping and Handling are extra.
Course Notes: $350.00 (Includes 1 hour of phone consultation, Lecture Material, Problem Statement, and Problem solution). Shipping and Handling are extra.
