Based on Les Besser's famous RF course material, this program has been reworked and updated to meet the needs of today's engineers looking for online self-paced study. Video lectures are followed by our exclusive online workbooks featuring interactive problem sets and quizzes along with optional supplemental reading for those who wish to explore topics in more depth. A bonus guest tutorial from a Besser Associates instructor offers a different perspective on one of the topics covered in the course (guest tutorials vary by course offering).
These courses focus on CDMA/OFDM fundamentals as well as the techniques that have been incorporated into 5G/4G LTE/Advanced specifications. Topics covered include 5G Wireless Networks, mm-Wave Antennas, Smartphone Architecture, and more.
In this practical tip from InCompliance magazine, instructor Arturo Mediano discusses the importance of using the actual load of your device rather than substituting and equivalent resistor when testing for EMI.
Mismatch uncertainty is the result of reflections adding and subtracting from each other when more than one interface is present.
