Course handbook

Description

This course considers advanced analogue electronics design with a particular emphasis on radio frequency (RF) electronics. Both theoretical and practical aspects of RF electronic circuits are considered. A major component of the course is a project, where students are required to design, test and construct an electronic circuit.
