GRADING AND COURSE MATERIALS
Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)
  • 1
    This course draws on electromagnetic theory for transmission lines, device physics for linear and nonlinear transistor models, time- and frequency-domain measurements, and industrially-relevant CAD software for a comprehensive introduction to time- and frequency-domain IC concepts in the picosecond/GHz regime. The course lays the foundations of understanding and designing hardware for wireless communications systems.
    [C001]
  • 2
    Students will gain understanding of high frequency (microwave) components for communication, measurement, and sensing systems. By alternating between high- and low-level discussions, analysis and design of a wide variety of microwave elements, components, subsystems and systems, the instructor seeks to maintain rigor at the fundamental level while continuously placing these details in the context of the above-mentioned systems.
    [C002]
  • 3
    By the end of the course, students will be conversant in microwave element, component, subsystem and system terminology, understand the advantages and limitations of different design approaches, and be able to draw upon a wide range of tools, both analytical and numerical, to solve microwave circuit design problems. Each student will have proposed, designed, analyzed, and simulated an industrially-relevant component such as a coupled line filter, mixer, amplifier, oscillator, or simulation tool while presenting intermediate and final results to the rest of the class.

ACADEMIC POLICIES
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

By enrolling in this course, each student assumes the responsibilities of an active participant in UW-Madison’s community of scholars in which everyone’s academic work and behavior are held to the highest academic integrity standards. Academic misconduct compromises the integrity of the university. Cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration, and helping others commit these acts are examples of academic misconduct, which can result in disciplinary action. This includes but is not limited to failure on the assignment/course, disciplinary probation, or suspension. Substantial or repeated cases of misconduct will be forwarded to the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards for additional review. For more information, refer to https://conduct.students.wisc.edu/academic-integrity/

ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

McBurney Disability Resource Center syllabus statement: “The University of Wisconsin-Madison supports the right of all enrolled students to a full and equal educational opportunity. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Wisconsin State Statute (36.12), and UW-Madison policy (Faculty Document 1071) require that students with disabilities be reasonably accommodated in instruction and campus life. Reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities is a shared faculty and student responsibility. Students are expected to inform faculty [me] of their need for instructional accommodations by the end of the third week of the semester, or as soon as possible after a disability has been incurred or recognized. Faculty [I], will work either directly with the student [you] or in coordination with the McBurney Center to identify and provide reasonable instructional accommodations. Disability information, including instructional accommodations as part of a student's educational record, is confidential and protected under FERPA.” http://mcburney.wisc.edu/facstaffother/faculty/syllabus.php

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Institutional statement on diversity: “Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW-Madison. We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion enrich the university community. We commit ourselves to the pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and diversity as inextricably linked goals.


The University of Wisconsin-Madison fulfills its public mission by creating a welcoming and inclusive community for people from every background – people who as students, faculty, and staff serve Wisconsin and the world.” https://diversity.wisc.edu/
