Low Noise Amplifier Design

• Designed, assembled, soldered and tested components for unconditionally stable LNA using a packaged BJT and lumped elements on FR4 with a gain of 15.2 dB and noise figure of 1.545 dB at 1.4 GHz and prepared Bill of Materials (BOM).

Bandpass Filter Design

• Designed the schematic and layout of third order micro strip coupled line Chebyshev bandpass filter centred at 2.45 GHz with a return loss of 10 dB and a Figure of Merit (FOM) of 15.151 dB. Impedance Matching

• Designed and tuned a distributed microstrip matching circuit to match a non-50 Ohm load to 50 Ohms in both ADS and Momentum and obtained a 10 dB Return loss for a given center frequency at 2 GHz. Distributed Low Pass Filter Design

• Designed, assembled and measured a distributed low pass filter with alternating sections of high and low impedance microstrip lines with a cut-off frequency of 1.25GHz. Single-Ended Mixer Design

• Designed and fabricated a single-ended mixer using microstrip quadrature hybrid coupler, diode, RF choke and open-circuited and short-circuited stubs to down-convert an RF signal at 1 GHz to an IF at 70 MHz Patch Antenna Design

• Designed, fabricated and tested microstrip patch antenna with a fundamental resonant frequency at 2.15 GHz using momentum to design the layout of the antenna for fabrication. Receiver System Integration

• Assembled, tested and performed Power-Budget calculations at various nodes for a bench-top receiver system that will receive a signal in the 915MHz range and down-convert it to an IF frequency in the 70MHz range using an LO frequency in the 985MHz range.


• Keysight RF & Microwave Industry-Ready Student Certification.

• Wireless Engineering Graduate certification.

• Rahsoft RF fundamentals, basic concepts and components certification.

• CCNA Training from Internetworkz, Bangalore, India.

• Advanced Diploma in Embedded Systems from ISM, Bangalore, India.
