Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Aim

The aim of the course is to treat the main ideas, methods, circuits, and components of microwave engineering from a system perspective, and thus give the overview system understanding needed for a wireless hardware engineer.

Content

The course consists of three main blocks of system engineering:
1) Low level system design ( block schematic ) of receivers and transmitters for wireless communications and radar: block schematics, the superheterodyne principle, systems, sub-systems and building blocks.
2) Link budget design of wireless communication and radar systems: noise, propagation, channel properties, modulation, dynamic range, etc.
3) Wireless communication systems: access principles (e.g. TDMA, FDMA, CDMA), cellular systems (e.g. NMT, GSM, UMTS ( 3G ), GPRS, Bluetooth, WLAN), GPS, transponders (IFF, tagging
