Performed conversion loss measurements for RF mixers and analyzed the effect of resolution bandwidth on noise.
Microstrip Resonator Design
Designed single and double stub resonator on RogersO3035 substrate at 2.5GHz.
Wilkinson Power Divider
Designed a 3-dB microstrip Wilkinson power divider on FR-4 at 2.5GHz frequency with <1 dB of insertion loss.
Microstrip Filter Design
Designed a Chebyshev 0.5dB equi-ripple low pass filter on FR-4 substrate at 2.5GHz cut-off frequency.
Designed a 3-dB maximally flat Butterworth low pass filter on FR-4 substrate at 2.5GHz cut-off frequency.
Dipole Antenna Design
Designed two identical half-wave dipole antennae, resonant at 2.5GHz and measured the received power sourced from signal generator.
Analyzed the RF power at the receiver linear and cross-polarization by varying the distance between the antenna.
RF Systems - Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets
Implemented an RF system that detects and communicates conditions of ice sheets in the polar region by dynamically monitoring their variation in size/location using RADAR and two communication systems (14.475 GHz) in AWR VSS that also measured various RF Link Budget parameters with cascade analysis and yield analysis.
