The aim of the subject is that the student adquires knowledge on the actual implementation of transceivers for the modern communication systems that transmit in the radiofrequency and optical bands bands. In the case of RF and MW transceivers, the student will learn to evaluate performance, select and design components and analog circuits (active and passive) for them. As an learning aid, the student will use commercial circuit simulators.
In the field of the optical communications, the student will learn the operation of the basic transmission and reception components and active optoelectronical subsystems , and will be able to characterise them and select them as function of the optical system to be designed.
In this course the student will handle technical and scientific bibliography in English language.
