Frequently Asked Questions
I think that the topics covered in this part of course were exactly what I would like to learn more deeply. L.R. 2014-07-14T00:00:00
The Course covers mainly the top real issues faced during RF design / test, ie:
the backoff values for a PA ( to sort out EVM issues );
the spectral regrowth ( at PA saturation ) ie for a QPSK , QAM modulation;
and the group delay.
The 3 above above topics helped me to figure out / fix a real problem I was encountering on a project. Excellent topics. C.V. 2014-07-14T00:00:00
I've always struggled to understand phase noise and how to measure it. This course helped me out significantly. It did a good job explaining what it is (how its generated) and the effects on system performance. The last section on system calculations was also superb. L.K. 2014-07-14T00:00:00
The pattern of lectures, notes and examples gives a good overview of the topic A.A. 2014-07-14T00:00:00
I liked pace as in all lessons. That definitely is a plus. I also like format of the materials, lecture and how complex matter is explained. I wish that lecture could cover a little bit more details. J.B. 2014-07-14T00:00:00
Good mix of video and written portions. J.B. 2014-07-14T00:00:00
I particularly liked the part on intermodulation products and receiver performance L.C. 2014-07-14T00:00:00
The pace of the lecture was about right, not too fast not too slow. Also how complex subjects were explained in easy to understand manner. I like that there are a variety of approaches in the material, like start from video part (lecture) with good slow pace, and then increase dificulty and adding some excercisses without any notes. I think that course and materials are based in a well built structure. In general it meet my expectations. I like also video based examples with demo and the way how the subject was presented and explained during this presentation. Perhaps adding more of those type material would be also beneficial for students. J.B. 2014-10-21T00:00:00
I particularly liked the sections that dealt with power meters, spectrum analyzers and vector network analyzers. L.C. 2014-10-21T00:00:00
I liked it. The key points and sample questions at the end of each section do a good job of re-enforcing the important points of each presentation. C.S. 2014-10-21T00:00:00
I liked the pace of the course. I found also useful apps and simulations from different sources which helped to visualize difficult subjects of the material. I like how the fundamentals are explained to the bones. I really helped me to understand foundation or background of some aspects of the subject. J.B. 2014-10-21T00:00:00
Well rounded, lots of information. 2014-10-21T00:00:00
I liked the instructors delivery, pace and teaching style. I also liked the manner in which the quizes were given, incldung the duration and content. L.C. 2014-10-21T00:00:00
I'm learning RF concepts that will be directly applicable to my job. T.B. 2014-10-21T00:00:00
Very good review of the basics. Even though I have been doing this for many years, it was still useful and challenging to reinforce all the basics and get more practice. H.R. 2014-10-21T00:00:00
Not too hard. Not too easy.
I learned something I didn't know, or I have a better grasp of something I thought I knew. J.M. 2015-02-20T00:00:00
Good overview of formats and modulation techniques and comparisons between each are helpful--especially tradeoff info. J.V. 2015-02-20T00:00:00
I liked the pacing of this course. I came here to get a high level understanding of the material and I achieved that without dedicating an unreasonable amount of time to it. E.F. 2015-07-10T00:00:00
Important points covered as bullet points rather than us having to go through 200 page text book or internet was very convenient. V.S. 2016-02-26T00:00:00
I liked how the course was set up, it worked really well for me. S.A. 2016-02-26T00:00:00
I liked that it focused a lot on practical application understanding rather than proofs and high level math that while good to know won't be applied by 99.9% of engineers in the field. M.F. 2016-02-26T00:00:00
I liked seeing block diagrams of instruments which I use fairly often; this helped me really understand what the instruments were doing. They no longer feel like big black and white boxes. S.J. 2016-02-26T00:00:00
