Welcome to first course of RF certificate series. In this topic we are going to explain the basic concepts of RF design in a simplest way possible. The audience for RF basic course are Electrical engineers, technicians, sails engineers and other employees of an RF related company who want to have general idea of RF basic concepts. At the end of this course you would have general knowledge of the fundamental topics discussed in RF industry. This course is a great crash course for people who have interviews and need to wrap up the RF topic within a few hours and become from zero knowledge to have an understand of most topics in a general matter.
One of the most important things for us to have a most updated materials needed in the industry. Ahsan Ghoncheh, our Co-Founder and Technical Adviser consults with different RF engineers at Broadcomm, Qualcomm, apple and Skyworks on building practical circulim and topics that are needed and in demand in the industry. So instead of going academic approach we are going to an indsutry approach.
I want to thank you for choosing Rahsoft and trusting us. please feel free to contact us. We are truly excited and grateful on going with you through this journey on becoming an RF expert. If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact us.
