To give the fundamentals of electronic design in telecommunications including RF and Microwave, with a practical perspective through the realization of laboratory electronic projects.
The skills acquired by students are:
- Understand the specific characteristics of designing radio frequency systems.
- Application of generic concepts of transmission lines to the design of radio-frequency and microwave circuits.
- Knowledge of the stages of development of an RF receiver and its components (filters, amplifiers, oscillators, optimization and impact on signal to noise ratio).
-Capacity to design and simulate the various constituent elements of a radio-frequency systems, either passive or active.
Armed with basic knowledge of matching impedance, students gain further knowledge on the design of filters, amplifiers and oscillators. Finally they confronted with the design of RF and microwave receivers.
Learning outcomes are the acquisition of skills for the design of the various elements of a communication system radio-frequency.
Introduction to radio-frequency communication systems. Review of transmission lines. S-Parameters and flow diagrams. Microwave network analysis: S-parameters matrix, signal flow graphs. Noise and intermodulation distortion. Filter design. Design of high-frequency amplifiers. Oscillators and frequency synthesizers. Receiver design.
Theoretical lectures and guided laboratory classes where the students are required to write a report of the work carried out, followed by an oral discussion.

Students with a special status have to do the continuous assessment component of the course. They will have access to laboratories, in order to their assignments.
Students can improve their mark of the theoretical component of the course by attending to a new exam. They can also improve their continuous assessment mark by doing a practical exam.
