RF System Design
Following the ‘Primer on RF Design’ course, this class focuses on system-level issues. We discuss several important design considerations including noise, non-linearity, distortion, sensitivity and dynamic range and their impact in selecting the appropriate system architecture. The course also covers common receiver architectures including superheterodyne and direct-conversion receivers.
