Design, Fab and Test Your Own Microwave Component

David Ricketts, NCSU

In this fun workshop participants will learn the basic theory of modern digital radios, as well as the RF circuits and systems used to build them. After an introductory session on digital radios, participants will select one of four RF building blocks from a modern quadrature amplitude modulated (QAM) radio that can be quickly built and tested on site. These components are all made from scratch using microwave techniques and substrates. The components include a multi-pole microstrip filter, a branchline coupler, or a Wilkinson divider. Each participant will design their RF component using NI AWR software, fabricate it, test it, and take it home.
