Besser Associates offers courses that either focus exclusively on RF PCB design or include discussions of design techniques along with other topics (such as EMC/EMI troubleshooting).
New! You can now sign up for Rick Fornes' RF and High Speed PCB and EMI Design Fundamentals course (classroom video recording) right here on RFMentor Academy. Use your existing RFMentor account to purchase one part at a time (8 parts total) for the same price as taking the whole course at once! Each part is approximately 1 to 1.5 hours long and you will receive 60 days access.
These courses provide the concepts and techniques that are necessary to understand communication system design at the system block level. Issues such as tradeoffs between spectral efficiency and power efficiency of different approaches and their effects on component performance requirements are covered.
Antenna design is playing an increasingly important role in the performance of both fixed and mobile products. Courses in this topic provide an understanding of antenna types and performance parameters.
This online program has been designed for applications, production, manufacturing engineers and technicians as well as other professionals who need to have a solid background in the fundamentals of working with RF and wireless products. This four part program provides a thorough understanding of RF analytical tools, communications signals, RF devices and test instruments. Starting with basic analytical tools such as the decibel scale, S-parameters and the Smith Chart, this program covers test instrumentation, RF components, and modulation.
Besser Associates offers training courses on Digital Signal Processing. These courses develop the student's fundamental understanding of DSP theory. The practical aspects of signal processing techniques are stressed allowing DSP professionals to make their processing algorithms more efficient.
