Language of instruction: The course will be given in English


The course is intended to give a general knowledge in radio frequency applications, especially those which are common in radio communications. The fundamentals are introduced without penetrating the electronics or design details. The different parts are treated as functional blocks defined by their physical properties. This will give a basic understanding of the radio receiver or the cellular phone but also the requirements put on the used circuits. Thus Basic Wireless Communication Technique is a compulsory course for those who later want to specialise as radio frequency designers.
