Introduction to Radio Electronics:
Introduces logarithmic scales in
radio frequency (RF) units, super heterodyne
and Zero intermediate frequency (IF) radio communication architectures,
receiver characterization, transceiver architectures, and operation of
basic radio blocks. Covers the Smith chart, Sparameters, Impedance
matching, analysis and design of RF circuit blocks including low noise
amplifiers, mixers, and power amplifiers. Discusses limitations due to
power, frequency, and nonlinear distortions.
