Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits and Systems

Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits and Systems (RF-ICs) (2+2 SWS)

with RF-IC Design Workshop



WS2019, Tuesdays 14:00-15:30

NTI Lecture Hall, 30.10, Engesserstrasse 5


Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ahmet Cagri Ulusoy

Workshops: M. Sc. Ibrahim Kagan Aksoyak


Lecture Format: 2+2


  • Understanding of RF-IC technologies
  • Analysis of active and passive components in IC-design
  • Overview of system level approach to RF-ICs and transceiver topologies
  • Theory and design of basic building blocks of an integrated transceiver including low-noise amplifiers (LNAs), mixers, voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs) and phased-locked loops (PLLs)

RF-IC Design Workshop:

  • The lecture will be organized in parallel to an RF-IC design workshop where the students will have access to a state-of-the art BiCMOS technology and will design RF-IC building blocks in industry-standard tools
