Microwave Engineering I: Passive Circuit Design
Microwave Engineering, 3rd Edition, David M. Pozar, John Wiley and Sons, 2005.
This course is structured to provide all students with the fundamental concepts and techniques associated with RF/microwave/wireless passive circuit design. Successful completion of this course will allow students to design and evaluate passive microwave circuits, as well as comprehend and analyze more advanced material in the field of microwave engineering. Microwave engineering is growing in importance with each passing year. It has application to the wireless industry and to high density electronic packaging for computer systems with fast clock speeds. Some common applications of passive microwave circuits include communication systems (e.g., satellite-to-ground link), mobile phones and wireless local-area-network, radar, navigation and guidance systems (e.g., GPS), antennas, radio astronomy, electronic warfare, remote sensing, and biomedical devices.
