ECE 323 Microwave Measurements Laboratory

Advanced topics in microwave measurements: introduction to state-of-the-art microwave test equipment (Vector Network analyzer, spectrum analyzer), power spectrum and noise measurements, calibration, S-parameter and impedance measurements, methods for measuring the dielectric constant of materials, Low Noise and Power amplifier measurements, Non-linearity measurements, near-field and far-field antenna pattern measurements, Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design and fabrication, Introduction to Microwave and Antenna CAD tools. Followed by a project that includes design, analysis, fabrication and testing of a microwave subsystem.
