ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The topic of microwave frequency discriminators is introduced. Various applications and implementation techniques of these devices are given and discussed. This thesis may serve as reference foundation for future research on this topic. Discriminators are developed at both S- and X-band, with high linearity and good sensitivity. The systems used to implement these devices are developed as well. The S-band discriminator is used in a direct FM demodulation system, which works well.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Hierdie is 'n inleiding tot die onderwerp van mikrogolf frekwensie diskrimineerders. Verskeie toepassings en implementeringstegnieke van hierdie toestelle word genoem en bespreek. Hierdie tesis kan dien as verwysings-raamwerk vir toekomstige navorsing oor hierdie onderwerp. Diskrimineerders is ontwikkel by beide S- en X-band, met 'n goeie lineariteit en sensitiwiteit. Die stelsels wat gebruik word om hulle te implementeer, is ook ontwikkel. Die S-band diskrimineerder is gebruik in 'n direkte FM demodulasie sisteem en werk goed.
