EE 414 Microwave Engineering


3 cr.


EE 314 or equivalent.

Course Description

Fundamentals of modern microwave engineering with emphasis on microwave network analysis and circuit design. Microwave transmission lines, including waveguide, coax, microstrip, and stripline. Microwave circuit theory, including S-parameters, ABCD matrices, equivalent circuits, and signal flow graphs. Upon completion of this class the student will be able to analyze and design passive microwave circuits and components such as matching networks and microwave resonators, power dividers, directional couplers, and filters. Modern RF & microwave CAD such as ANSYS HFSS, ANSYS DesignerRF, Advanced Design System (ADS), and MATLAB will be used to emphasize and to help in understanding important concepts of the course. The primary methods of assessing student learning are homework assignments, exams and design projects.
