Baktash Behmanesh, Assistant Professor
Baktash Behmanesh is the course coordinator for two courses offered at EIT:
EITF50: Introduction to Wireless Systems
This course aims to provide a broad and general knowledge in high frequency electronic circuits (also known as radio frequency (RF) circuits), and measurement tools especially those used in wireless radio communications. The fundamental circuit building blocks are introduced and their important functional and design characteristics are investigated. This will not only provide a solid fundamental understanding of the radio transceiver (base station or user equipment of a wireless communication system), but also the requirements placed on the used circuits at both link ends of a wireless system, which help the engineers to develop a deep insight into the wireless radio systems architecture and design.
Advanced measurement techniques will be taught and will be practiced in reality with spectrum analyzers and vector network analyzers during laboratory experiments to study separate circuit blocks and component behaviors. A separate laboratory session is dedicated to system level simulation of some fundamental concepts in wireless radio systems in a modern CAD tool.
ETIN35: Integrated-Circuit Project I
This course aims to familiarize the students with the design flow of an integrated circuit. The students are divided in groups and they work on a project starting from circuit-level specifications and then performing literature study, design, simulation, chip layout, post-layout simulations, fabrication, and eventually measurements.
