Course Info:

Goal: Introduction to the theory and the circuits of analog filters with an emphasis on their applications in communication. Skills for the design of basic types of analog filters with an emphasis on high-frequency filters intended for communication applications.

Contents: 1. Detailed review and further development of filter synthesis methods at high frequencies. Focuses on using cascaded biquads, passive filters, wave active filters, coupled resonators, quartz crystal filters, etc.

2. Transconductors.

3. Approximation.

4. Monolithic filters for communication applications.
