10.    Course Goals (acquired competencies):  The student will be enriched with theoretical and practical work and knowledge in the design and simulation in radio communications. Moreover, they will develop skills in practical development of radio transceivers and subsystems included in the radio receiver and transmitter. Students will get knowledge to develop simulations models for advanced radio communications.

11.    Course Syllabus: Transceiver Structure. Radio communication sub-systems. Systems for base band. Linearity and noise. Link Budget and effects of the link budget in the design of a radio receiver. Radio frequent subsystems: LNA, mixers, oscillators, frequency synthesizers, filters. Receiver characteristics: Sensitivity and dynamic range, amplification, Noise factor, inter-modulation, reciprocal mixing. Architecture of the Heterodyne Receiver. IF. Interference. Control of interference in microwave systems. Receiver synchronization. Loop filters. Phase-locked loops. Phase detectors. Structure of modern receivers.

12.    Learning methods:  Lectures, presentations, interactive learning, practical and theoretical exercises (using simulations, software and hardware), team work, case study, invited lecturer(s), homework, project work and/or seminar work, e-learning (forums), consultations.
