ETIN50 RF Amplifier Design

Schedule

2019/2020


Schedule and Materials

The official course schedule can be found on LU TimeEdit, but it is also summarised below.

Schedule on LU TimeEdit > ETIN50 (if any difference to below, TimeEdit is the correct one)

 

Note 1: Completed preparation is your ticket to the lab session. Lab supervisors will make an attendance list while checking the preparation exercises. 

Note 2: Hand-in assignments are done individually, but labs are done in groups of two.
