Modeling of active and passive devices and transmission line structures at high frequencies. Analysis and design of radio-frequency electronic circuits including amplifiers, mixers, multipliers, detectors, and oscillators; transistor-, circuit-, and system-level design methods, challenges, and topologies; noise and distortion analysis; and evaluation of modern radio systems. The equivalent of three lecture hours a week for one semester. Electrical Engineering 361R and 379K (Topic: Radio Frequency Circuit Design) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Electrical Engineering 325 and 438 with a grade of at least C- in each.
