Laboratory of Electronics 2

Course Description

The purpose of this course is to give the students the practical knowledge about representative RF power circuits and applications and good understanding of methods and techniques in CMOS digital circuits design. The course offers a hands-on experience about the concepts that are taught in Radio-Frequency Electronics and Digital Microelectronic Circuits.

General Competencies

The students get practical knowledge about common RF power circuits and oscillators, ability to analyse, model, design and implement adequate RF power amplifiers and oscillators. They should get acquainted with CAD tools for layout and electrical simulation of CMOS microelectronic circuit and should adopt the practical skills in layout design, circuit extraction and CMOS circuit verification needed for analysing and designing digital microelectronic circuits.
