Design and implementation of a 5GHz radio front-end module
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesis
The overall goal of this diploma work is to produce a design of a 5 GHz radio frontend using Agilent Advanced Design System (ADS) and then build a working prototype. Using this prototype to determine if RF circuits at 5 GHz can be successfully produced using distributed components on a laminate substrate.
The design process for the radio front-end consists of two stages. In the first stage the distributed components are designed and simulated, and in the second stage all components are merged into a PCB. This PCB is then manufactured and assembled. All measurements on the radio front-end and the test components are made using a network analyser, in order to measure the S-parameters.
This diploma work has resulted in a functional design and prototype, which has proved that designing systems for 5 GHz on a laminate substrate is possible but by no means trivial.
