ENGR 356 (Engineering Electronics I Class)


LTSpice Getting Started Guide LTSpice is a good simulator and runs on Windows, Linux (under wine), and OS X.

ENGR 357 (Engineering Electronics II Class)

Qucs Simulations

Software Defined Radio Links

These are also useful for the vector network analyzer project.

SDR Using Realtek RTL2832U

Phase Locked Loops

Wideband Transformers

Transformer Design


  • Murata's comparison of monolithic ceramic capacitors as compared to Tantalum capacitors. Note that monolithic ceramic capacitors values decrease if you put larger DC voltages across them though. The effective series resistance and temperature behavior are much better though.
  • The markings on capacitors are often based on pF. There will be three digits, like 104 for 0.1uF. The first two digits are the digits of the value, and the next number is the number of zeros to add after that to denote the capacitance in pF. Thus 104 in 10 * 1e4 pF.

Transmission Lines

Smith Chart

Vector Network Analyzer Links
