Microwave Circuits Design

Course Description:

This course contains two sections. The first section provides a physical and mathematical description of wave propagation in guided structures, including: microstrip lines, striplines, and coplanar waveguides. The section also provides an overview of network Theory for N-port networks. As well, the scattering parameters and analysis via flow diagrams are introduced. In the second section, passive microwave circuit devices are studied including couplers, hybrids, power dividers/combiners, narrow and wide band matching networks, and filters.
