Training Courses offered by Cambridge RF

Cambridge RF teaches courses in Digital Modulation theory and RF system and circuit design. These are usually conducted on our customers' sites for minimum disruption to course delegates.

An Introduction to Digital Modulation Formats

Courses can be tailored in emphasis to suit the audience. This is our standard syllabus.

This full day training course gives an insight into digital modulation concepts and measurement techniques. The topic is dealt with from the perspective of an RF engineer, focussing on the impact that various digital modulation formats have on the behaviour and requirements of RF circuits. Topical wireless technologies are presented, such as W-CDMA and Bluetooth, and the implications for transmitter and receiver design and verification are explained.


Introduction to Digital Modulation Systems
Digital Modulation Fundamentals. TDMA, FDMA, CDMA
Bluetooth, GSM, EDGE, W-CDMA, 802.11a/b


RF Component-Level Measurements
Linear measurements - Group delay, S-Parameters (inc. Balanced)
Non-Linear Measurements - AM-AM, AM-PM, Intermodulation, ACP, EVM. Load-pull techniques


Receiver Measurements
Typical receiver architectures and their issues.
