Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


The goal of this teaching module is to understand the electromagnetic radiation mecanisms.

This teaching module will be divided into 2 parts

- Antennas – 16 hours – 2 ECTS

The aim is to understand how to design and characterize antennas. The following contents will be studied:

  • Radiation of a dipole 
  • Main antenna parameters: radiation pattern, directivity, ...,
  • Antennas such as microstrip patch, Antennas network, beamsteering/beamforming antenna array

- Signal integrity – 10 hours – 1 ECTS

Basic principles will be explained such as:

  • Digital signals: spectral distribution of signals and knee frequency, rise time, overshoot, ringing, crosstalk
  • Transmission lines modelling
  • Coupling, crosstalk (amplitude, delay), SSN, substrate coupling
  • Packaging (processes, single and hybride dies, influence of the package)
