Wireless Technology "Made Simple"

These seminars provide nontechnical professionals with a firm grounding in the language and meaning of technical RF and wireless concepts. They also convey a conceptual understanding of the operation of various wireless systems. All explanations use simple physical descriptions without complex mathematics.

RF Wireless Orientation: Devices and Industry Literacy Part 1 Basics (281)

This new series, based on our classic "RF and Wireless Made Simple" course is the perfect orientation for all "non-technical" employees in the RF/Wireless product industry. Everyone in your organization who needs to quickly appreciate the challenges and tradeoffs involved with producing wireless devices will benefit from this program.

RF and Wireless Made Simple - On Demand (192)

Learn how to speak engineer-or at least understand them!

and learn at your own pace.

RF & Wireless Made Simple online course can teach a basic understanding of RF and wireless technology in as little as 8 hours, or up to six months whenever you need a "refresher".
Frequently used terms will be explained, as well as how to calculate dB. The names and functions of RF system components are discussed and a description of how they interact to generate and process signals is provided. The course explains the basic principles of signal processing and multiple access techniques in wireless telecommunications. A variety of relevant topics will be covered including a comparison of the specifications of commercial wireless systems. The course concludes with a discussion on the future of wireless technology and its applications.

RF and Wireless Made Simple (234)

This two-day day course provides nontechnical professionals with a firm understanding of basic RF principles and technical concepts. RF technology, wave propagation and transmission techniques will be characterized for various performance requirements. This course will also convey a conceptual understanding of RF wireless systems and how they work for the multiple wireless standards. All explanations use simple physical descriptions without complex mathematics.

Introduction to Wireless Communication Systems (235)

This seminar provides an overall view of wireless communications including commercial and military applications for Program Managers, Engineering Managers, and others that do not have a technical engineering background. This is a very informative class at a high level so managers that are involved or going to be involved with Wireless Communications can understand at a high level what the engineers and programs are developing. It includes high level descriptions, enough detail to understand the concepts with little math or analysis involved. This is focus towards spread spectrum systems, which is nearly all of communications today. It covers a wide range of data link communication techniques, including tradeoffs of the system including cost reduction and size reduction methods using a budget to determine what is needed for the wireless system. It discusses the advantages of digital systems that are used extensively today, receivers and transmitters, digital modulation and demodulation techniques of phase-shift keyed and frequency hopped spread spectrum systems using easy-to-understand phase diagrams. It also addresses gain control, high level probability, jamming reduction method using various adaptive processes, error detection and correction, global positioning systems (GPS) data link, and satellite communications. The course discusses broadband communications including Link 16, JTRS, military radios, and networking. It also includes commercial applications such as 3G, 4G, WiFi, WiMax, LTE and home networking. Various techniques and designs are evaluated for modulating and sending/receiving digital data. Thus the student gains a firm understanding of the processes needed to effectively understand wireless data link communication systems which is vital to their jobs.

How to Speak RF (and Wireless) (187)

This new course is designed to have little or no mathematics required. It will be less technical than the "RF and Wireless Made Simple" course.

RF and Wireless A la Carte (178)

This special list of topics can be arranged into a two to five day course depending on your organization's needs. Available as an on-site course only.
