After completing this course, the student can explain the propagation of electromagnetic waves. The student can perform circuit analysis and can explain its limitations for RF electronics. After completing this course, the student also recognizes basics about antennas and RF measurements and is able to apply this knowledge on application examples, such as RFID.

This course introduces some common passive microwave components. The project work includes design, fabrication, measurement, and documentation of a simple microwave component (directional coupler, power divider, hybrid, or filter).
