The course provides a broad general knowledge in high frequency applications, especially those used in radio communications. The fundamentals are introduced without penetrating the electronics or design details. The different parts are treated as functional blocks defined by their physical properties rather than their electronic. This will not only provide a basic understanding of the radio receiver or the cellular phone but also the requirements placed on the used circuits.
Advanced measurements are carried out with spectrum analyser and vector network analyser in laboratory experiments to study selected building blocks.
Thus An Introduction to Wireless Systems is a compulsory course for those who later want to specialise as radio frequency designers.
