I appreciate that the course is self paced. I was able to work my way through sections i had trouble with at my own pace. The supplied course material will help me in the future.
I enjoyed the sections at the end about PCB design and via holes. That's something I didn't get a chance to learn in college and found quite interesting.
I really enjoyed the format of example and demonstration in each aspect of theory, which were very detailed and realistic
I enjoyed the format and features of this course: Application. Videos. Problem sets. Lecture notes. Instructor correspondence.
I enjoyed the transition of topics. Breakdown of topics/subjects. Visuals. Lectures/presentations. Some more simulations would also be great. Many were, still provided. I enjoyed all topics, particularly stripline/microstrip. I have more to cover, still, from this course and wish to return to this material in the near future. Feed back from problems were also good. More challenging problems would also be of benefit. (I.E Challenge Problems).
I enjoy that's more practical and tangible than theory.
The mix of lecture & workbook is good, and breaks it up well. The real world examples are appreciated. Many practical examples are given, and that was great.
There are a few sections that I enjoyed in this course. The first being the thorough description of RLC components at RF and microwave frequencies. The impedance matching section was very helpful for me as an applications engineer. Customers frequently have tuning and matching issues in their systems and this course helped give me a better understanding of the topics as a new engineer. I also enjoyed the VSWR description and how we can use different terms to describe the same subject. The way the technical description and equations were related to real systems helped clarify (the java visualization of the superposition was especially helpful).
I enjoyed the structure and how the lecture videos were followed by related example problems. I also appreciated that it sometimes approached things with multiple methods, like explaining how impedance matching can be done with equations or with a smith chart.
The interactive parts of the course (smith chart, reflection coefficient etc) were great. I think the pace of the course was all in all very good.
I like I how this course is useful in my everyday work life, and it has helped me understand what I am doing. I also do like how you get a pdf and video which makes it easier to understand.
Practical layout tips in regards to via inductance. Smith chart matching explained well. Balanced device matching explained well.
I enjoyed the portions on impedance matching, both analytical and using the Smith chart.
I enjoyed the simple codes provided, the instructor and the ability to download the notes.
I especially enjoyed the lab demonstrations.
I enjoyed the ability to take your time and really use the references to do work outside the course.
I liked how the course was catered to RF engineers in the industry. It doesn't focus on technical details that one is bound to forget, but rather high-level techniques and processes currently used in the industry.
I liked that it was self-paced and that the content grounded in principles and practice.
The lab exercises were a fun chance to experiment with some of the various concepts introduced. I really liked the introduction to the Vector Signal Analysis software and would love to see more real-world tools introduced.
The labs and demo videos were very helpful for visualizing the concepts.
