Overview
This course is devoted to the fundamentals of practical filter design for RF and microwave systems in a low cost, PCB environment.

The central challenge is to identify the most useful filter topologies for this construction method and frequency range. The search for a useful topology must include knowledge of each component's spurious response. Various SMT component libraries will be examined with this in mind.

We will apply EM simulation to our designs when the layout becomes highly compacted, or when non-standard connections to library components are required. EM simulation will also be used to optimize the performance of edge launched PCB connectors. The instructor will choose examples to develop based on the interests of the class.
