Suggested text: Microwave Transistor Amplifiers 2nd Edition, Guillermo Gonzales, Prentice-Hall, 1997.
Planar active microwave circuits, diode and transistor characteristics, mixers, amps, oscillators, and frequency multipliers. Students will design circuits with CAD tools, fabricate in clean room, and measure performance in the lab. Graduate-level requirements include extra problems involving more challenging concepts and in-depth knowledge of the material.
