EE 3212 - Electromagnetic Waves

3 lecture hours 2 lab hours 4 credits
The primary goal of this course is to establish the foundation concepts and applications of electromagnetic waves in the context of wireless applications. The course builds on electromagnetic field principles covered in previous courses. The course begins with magnetic field topics and transitions into an introduction to time dynamic electromagnetic fields. Maxwell’s equations are then examined. Electromagnetic wave propagation is initially developed from a circuits viewpoint in the study of transmission lines. The Smith Chart is utilized to graphically determine and display transmission line and measurement results. Scattering parameters are introduced as the parameters used to express specifications and measurements of high-frequency components. Transmission line concepts are then extended to electromagnetic plane waves. Antennas and propagation are examined from a communication link viewpoint. An introduction to electromagnetic interference and signal integrity issues concludes the course. High frequency measurement techniques, components, and instrumentation are examined in the laboratory sessions. (prereq: MA 235  or MA 2440H , or MA 3502 , EE 3202 )
