Receiver, Transmitter and Transceiver Architectures (RAHRF409)
This course concentrates on the blocks and characteristics of RF Wireless systems, Transmitter, Receiver and Transceiver Architectures, used blocks and functions. ADS simulations and examples are provided and a great graphical example of different Transmitter and Receiver Designs.
- RAHRF101 and RAHRF201 or a complete understanding of RF fundamentals.
RAHRF409 is a complete Receiver, Transmitter and Transceiver Architecture Design course which discussed different blocks in designing Receiver, Transmitter and Transceiver and the characteristics of each design and different approaches. Various examples are provided in the course. At the end of the course the student would have a deep understanding of the topic and is able to view, understand and analyze Transceiver blocks.
Please note this course has pre-Requisite of RAHRF101 and RAHRF201. We recommend students take those two previous courses before starting this course. This course is counted as a core course in Rahsoft RF Certificate.
