The objective of this course is the design of electronic circuits, which are used in telecommunication systems. Specifically, the following issues are discussed: Electrical noise theory and layout design to minimize noise. High-frequency amplifier design (maximum gain design, minimum noise design, stability issues). Design of nonlinear elements, multipliers, mixers and power amplifiers. Nonlinear analysis theory, harmonic balance technique, Voltera series. Oscillator and modulator/demodulator design, phase locked loops (PLL). Digital transmitter/receiver design. This course also includes the design of electronic telecommunication circuits using appropriate CAD tools.
