Intended learning outcomes

The course gives students practical knowledge of the system design of radio frequency circuits for wireless communication. Students learn systematic design methods for recipients and transmitters used in wireless communication systems, such as 3G, 4G, WLAN and Bluetooth. Several aspects at the system level are presented, which requires basic knowledge of radioelectronics circuits. The aim of the course is that the student should learn the design principles of radio frequency systems for current radio standards and existing physical constraints. After the end of the course, the student is expected to:

  • analyze adio system and its physical layer (PHY) given specifications from different radio standards,
  • transform the system specification to performance requirements for radio circuits for different architectures,
  • verify an RF front-end for the required performance using professional software tools

Course content

Basic radio system design and design trade-offs for various radio architectures. Analysis and design of receiver and transmitter systems. Radio circuits and baseband issues. Performance evaluation. Project and design work with professional tools.

Teaching and working methods

Lectures, laboratory work, seminars, and project assignment.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
