See Contents
This project integrates the electrodynamics and HF electronics parts in one multidisciplinary project, with as vehicle a full transmit system consisting of antenna and electronics, driven from a signal source. Apart from applying the content of the other two parts in this module, many trade-offs and optimizations are requested in this project.

After this project you will
  • be able to understand and model how accelerating charges in antennas may be used to emit (send) and absorb (receive) electromagnetic waves (information).
  • have designed, constructed and tested a transmit antenna for a wireless communication device. You will have used the method of moments to calculate electromagnetic radiation (antenna patterns and impedance).
  • have designed the electronic circuit that drives the antenna with a properly modulated signal.
  • have included electrodynamics-related parasitics in your circuit (design) in such a way that these parasitics are leveraged, minimized or properly dealt with.
  • have had to make (and understand) trade offs in size constrained transmit systems, consisting of electronics and an antenna.
