RF and Microwave Design at K-State



















Student-Designed FM Receiver


Creating real-world product designs in a single semester...

Our main RF and microwave hardware design courses include ECE662 and ECE764.  In the senior-level EECE662 course (design of communication circuits) students design/build/test and document FM broadcast receivers such as those shown here.  In the ECE764 senior/graduate course offering (Microwaves and antennas), typical projects have included weather satellite receivers and CWFM radars (above).  The structure of these courses is documented in a paper published at the Frontiers in Education conference in 2000.

Additional courses include ECE765 (RFIC design), ECE696 (Intro IC design), and various special-topics courses offered under ECE690 or ECE890 numbers.  Check out our students' work from these courses!
