In RAHRF201 you would get deeper into Radio Frequency Design Theory and Principles. The reference book for this course is RF Microelectronics of Behzad Razavi .

At the end of this course the student will have depth knowledge of Radio Frequency principles. The team's main goal while developing the course has been to concentrate more on the concepts in order for students to understand the topics rather than simply providing formulas. 

This course has helped Engineers on surviving complicated phone and onsite interviews of Fortune 500 RF Companies and gain salaries on their early careers from 70K~120K. This course is also helpful for Engineers in the industry or technicians which want to change gears towards Radio Frequency. 

The above course is taught on campus in groups and now it is being provided online as well for individuals. Rahsoft provides these courses online through Udemy as well as its own website and it counts toward RF Certificate provided through Rahsoft.
