RF and Microwave Receiver Design

Course Overview

Learn how to design 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. For a limited time only, we will provide a free copy of our SpurFinder and TunerHelper receiver design software programs ($258.00 value) to all course participants.
