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