Course: Applied RF technology      
Date: t.b.d.      
Location: ASTRON, Dwingeloo      


The market for wireless equipment has grown at an incredible pace. Smartphones, cable modems, anti-theft labels, remote data logging, embedded Bluetooth devices, wireless internet: Radio frequency (RF) technology has penetrated all aspects of daily life.

Many technicians, including test and verification engineers, work with high-frequency systems. Understanding the interrelationship of system components is extremely important to be able to oversee effects, causes and consequences. Because high-frequency aspects increasingly play a role in the design of embedded electronics, a course like this is also an excellent introduction for Digital/Analog engineers who are or will be involved in the development of RF systems.



Course structure

The course Applied RF technology consists of a four-day program. The theory part takes up 75% of the time, the remaining part is spent on hands-on sessions in our own lab.

Participants in this course must have a higher education working and thinking level. The participant knows the basic concepts of electronics. Ready knowledge of mathematical concepts is not required but is addressed in transmission line theory. Complex calculation methods are also used in the course. You will be sent documentation in preparation for this.



Course fee

The course fee is € 2.389,00 per person, excluding VAT. Included are the cost of course materials and lunches.



More information

Part of the programme is a tour to the famous 14-dish Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT).
The course will be held at ASTRON, which is located in the beautiful National Park Dwingelderveld, Europe's largest wet moorland area. ASTRON has price arrangements with several local accommodations, we can help you out finding the right place to stay.
