Course Code ETEC-205
Lecture hours per week 2
Lab hours per week 2
Course Availability: Open

This course introduces the students to radio frequency (RF) transmission in both wired and non-wired (wireless) media. From low RF frequencies up to microwaves, the characteristics of signal propagation and corresponding media properties are introduced. Numerous definitions, parameters and technical measures used in the RF field are studied, and many are calculated and measured in the laboratory. Student will also learn about cable types and specifications; basic and practical antennae; wave guide properties and selection. Mathematical, graphical and computer methods will be introduced and used to solve a variety of problems, including the analysis of two-port networks.
