Amcanion cyffredinol

The purpose of this module is to introduce the student to microwave engineering and applications. The lectures will provide an understanding of a range of microwave engineering design techniques and give a basic knowledge of a number components used in the development of microwave systems. This module covers the most commonly used microwave transmission lines and looks at transmission line design techniques.

Examples of microwave system line-ups that have been developed by members of the Medical Microwave Systems Research Group, in Bangor, will be given to allow the student to become familiar with typical system configurations, and also to give an appreciation of how microwave engineering techniques can be applied in the medical devices industry. The module will also provide the student with an appreciation of more general applications of microwave engineering, i.e. for microwave communication links.

Cynnwys cwrs

• A general overview of microwave systems engineering, including a number of practical system configurations developed for medical applications will be given. • This will be followed by an introduction to microwave system design in terms of attenuation and gain of passive and active components respectively, and use of dBs and dBms to design basic system line-ups. • Microwave transmission lines commonly used in microwave system design, i.e. co-axial lines and microstrip lines, will be introduced and it will be shown how to calculate their characteristic impedance. • A range of microwave system design techniques will then be introduced; including: derivation and use of the impedance transformation equation, graphical design techniques using Smith Charts.
