The knowledge of the problems in the field of microwaves becomes unavoidable with the explosion of telecommunications, IOT, RFID, wireless power transfer and more generally the development of electronic applications for higher and higher frequencies. The objective of this course is to introduce basic concepts useful in the analysis and design of circuits and microwave devices. The concepts discussed in this course will include understanding a telecommunications system as a whole from the electronic circuit to the transmission of waves. Application related to the course: telecommunications, RADAR, wireless energy transmission, ...
