About the event

This popular 2-day technical course, updated for 2015 and presented by a leading expert in wireless technology, provides a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of modern RF and wireless communications engineering. Topics covered include basic RF characteristics, electromagnetic waves, transmission lines and free-space propagation and key concepts such as RF power (dBm), characteristic impedance and S-parameters. Modulation is also described, first fundamental concepts followed by increasingly complex (but important) methods such as QAM, CDMA and OFDM. The course then defines basic RF building blocks (mixers, oscillators, filters and power amplifiers etc.) describing how these are combined to form complete RF systems.

The course concludes by defining important test and measurement terms and methods used to characterise RF component and system performance. This includes a series of practical demonstrations using modern RF test and measurement instruments. Throughout the course, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask the instructor questions to help clarify understanding.
