RF and Microwave Circuit and Component Design for Wireless Systems describes the general hardware components and circuits, design methods, system parameters, and architectures for RF and microwave applications. It features a wealth of practical examples primarily in communication systems, though this material can also be applied to other wireless applications.
The authors provide expert coverage of technical issues for engineers and technicians working in the areas of RF, microwaves, communications, solid–state devices, and radar systems. They cover general wireless systems and the devices and circuit technologies at work in them, as well as:
∗ Transmitter and receiver system parameters
∗ Transmission lines and impedance matching techniques
∗ Filters and couplers
∗ Low noise amplifiers
∗ Oscillators and modulation
∗ Power amplifiers
With the inclusion of figures, tables, curves, and a multitude of design examples, RF and Microwave Circuit and Component Design for Wireless Systems serves as a comprehensive reference for practitioners and a detailed introductory text for graduate students.
