Millimeter Wave Technology

Millimeter Wave Technology. Instructor: Prof. Mrinal Kanti Mandal, Department of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering, IIT Kharagpur. Millimeter wave components are usually realized by frequency scaling the microwave components. However, an engineer has to deal with several design challenges in terms of higher loss, high signal-to-noise ratio, signal distortions etc. while implementing a millimeter wave system. Primary focus of this course is to introduce the design problems and their solutions at millimeter wave frequencies. (from nptel.ac.in)
