WIST-201 - Radio Frequency (RF) Principles

Minimum Credits: 4 Length: 180 hours Prerequisites: Completion of the first year of the Wireless Systems Technician program. Delivery Method: Blended Cost: $873.92 Course Outline: https://sps.cotr.bc.ca/Outlines/Course%20Outlines/WIST201.pdf

This course is designed to introduce students to the concepts of electronics that are related to the transmission and reception of radio frequency (RF) signals. The course commences with theoretical and operational analysis of Angle Modulation (FM & PM) schemes as applied to radio transmission and reception. Common FM transmitter and receiver configurations, technical specifications, and schematics are investigated. Frequency synthesizers and phase locked loop (PLL) circuits are also introduced. Students will receive hands-on experience with basic analog and digital FM modulation technology. Commercial FM radio transmissions are examined, and students are introduced to advanced digital modulation techniques. The basic theory of spread spectrum radio systems and DSP analog is introduced.
