University of Virginia Teaches PCB Design With NI AWR Design Environment

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – August 1, 2016 --  The University of Virginia (UVA) Engineering School, the third oldest public university engineering school in the United States, is dedicated to providing significant hands-on experiences in RF and microwave circuit design to its students. The RF and Wireless Circuits course, taught by Prof. N. Scott Barker, covers design basics such as device impedance matching, noise, distortion and RF building blocks (low-noise amplifiers, mixers, voltage-controlled oscillators). The classroom learning material is complemented by a semester-long project of designing, building, testing and fielding a weather satellite receiver to receive and demodulate an automatic picture transmission (APT) signal.

“Using NI AWR software in my RF and microwave classes and labs has given my students strong hands-on experience, as well as a better view of how and why components interact as they do,” said Scott Barker, professor at UVA. “Since adopting NI AWR Design Environment, the size of my course has tripled to over 30 students.”
