This lecture begins with the scientific consideration of system architectures in the high-frequency range, with its focus on traffic engineering solutions; these are analog and digital (mobile) communication systems, radar systems, as well as navigation systems. The main focus of this lecture lies in the discussion of key components necessary in these systems. The basics of high frequency semi-conductor electronics will be discussed and two-port devices for power generation, detection and processing of high frequency signals will be presented. Heterostructures can essentially widen the range of applications for high frequency semi-conducturs and are therefore subject of this lecture. Finally, attention will be given to characteristics and fields of application of state-of-the-art heterostructure transistors.
