  • Type: KO Conversatorium
  • Format: Presence

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to perform successful basic measurements in the fields of network analysis, spectrum analysation, and RF power measurement. When describing RF phenomena, they are able to switch from time domain interpretation to frequency domain, and vice versa.

Subject of course

Basic functional principles and basic measurements with spectrum analysers, network analysers, digital storage oscilloscopes, rf-oscillators, and frequency counters. Discussion of the worst mistakes in rf measurement setups. Three main items: spectrum measurements, measurements of the reflection coefficient, and noise reduction by bandwidth limitation. Discussion of the relevant phenomena in the time domain, and in the frequency domain, respectively.

Teaching methods

Basic experimental measurements with RF measurement equipment focusing the main items of the course. All experiments are easy to understand on the knowledge level of bachelor courses Telecommunications and Wave Propagation, and after discussion and preparation in the lab group.
