Subject Overview:

A critical component of system design is the air interface to radiating the desired signal and suppressing undesirable signals from being radiated - electromagnetic compatibility. This subject will enable the students to calculate the radiation patterns of antennas, design efficient radiators and determine means of suppressing unwanted signals from being radiated.


Upon successful completion of this subject students should be able to:

  • Explain the issues in electromagnetic compatibility, interference, antennas and radiation and regulatory standards governing these systems and devices;
  • Describe system and regulatory issues associated with the design and implementation of nano-electronic systems.
  • One, written examination (not exceeding three hours) at the end of semester, worth 70%; Continuous assessment of submitted
  • project work (not exceeding 30 pages in total over the semester), worth 30%.
