Traditionally, wireless and RF communications has been one of the last bastions of analog engineering. With the advent of low cost digital, high speed integrated circuits, this too has become part of the digital domain. Although information transmitted today is largely digital high frequency signals whether digital or analog always behave like analog signals so having fundamental knowledge of this high frequency behavior is key.

Attendees Will Learn:
• An introduction to the process of how to transmit signals over the air; a discipline typically called RF Design
• Analysis such as functional design, link budgets, frequency conversions and transmitter/receiver design
• Tools typically used in analysis, simulation and testing
