Institute of Robust Power Semiconductor Systems

Microwave Analog Frontend Design - II

Advanced topics for the design of microwave and millimeter-wave monolithic integrated circuits (MMIC).

The lecture Microwave Analog Frontend Design - II will be offered as weekly as a face-to-face course according to the currently valid hygiene concept of the University of Stuttgart. The lecture is simultaneously broadcast as a live online course on the Internet (hybrid event). A login for participation in the web conferences will be made available on ILIAS. The live event will be recorded and made available for download as video file via ILIAS. In addition to the recordings, all lecture material such as scripts, slides, exercises and standard solutions, as well as examples of former exams will be made available for download through ILIAS.

Goal

Diese Vorlesung behandelt fortgeschrittene Themen beim Entwurf von analogen Sende- und Empfangsfrontends bei Mikro- und Millimeterwellenfrequenzen. WÄhrend sich der erste Teile der Vorlesungsreihe "Microwave Analog Frontend Design" auf den Entwurf der funktionalen Einzelstufen, liegt der Schwerpunkt des zweiten Teils auf Techniken der nichtlinearen Schaltungsanalyse, Designtechniken für die Massenfertigung, Aufbau- und Verbindungstechnik von monolithisch integrierten Millimeterwellenschaltungen (MMIC), und Pegelplanrechungen für Anwendungen in der Funkkommunikation und bei Radar. Der Dozent behält sich das Recht vor, den Inhalt des Kurses ohne vorherige Ankündigung zu ändern.
