This course will develop electronic circuits for radio frequency applications, specific to CMOS integrated circuits. As the course title suggests, the course will be specific to CMOS integrated circuits, and specific to radio frequencies.

In particular, the course will focus on circuits for radio front-ends for mobile phone handsets. The course will cover low noise amplifiers, mixers, power amplifiers, frequency synthesizers (and phase locked loops). The course will also cover several modern radio architectures.
