Lab: Radiofrequency Measurement Technique I

Modern transmitters and receivers are made up of many basic building blocks, e.g. Modulators or demodulators, oscillators, phased locked loops, operational amplifiers, filters, amplifiers, transistor mixers or antennas. Each component has a decisive role in the overall system. Therefore, engineers have to have a good knowledge of these components and this will be transmitted to the students in the laboratories of high-frequency technology.

Students learn the theoretical foundations of a range of high-frequency systems. They deepen their knowledge on the basis of practical investigations and measurements on experimental setups. The students document their examinations in written protocols and are able to evaluate the results obtained qualitatively.
