Nonlinear microwave circuits form the building blocks of key components in wireless communications devices. This book presents the theory and practical design methodology for some of the most common nonlinear microwave circuits including power amplifiers, oscillators, mixers, frequency multipliers and dividers.

With a clear emphasis on examples, this book:

  • Describes the main nonlinear analysis algorithms, measurements and models
  • Includes coverage of the basic concepts and the design methodologies for power amplifiers
  • Describes the most commonly used oscillatory circuits
  • Discusses the design of frequency multipliers and dividers, with special emphasis on active multipliers.
Nonlinear Microwave Circuit Design will appeal to practising microwave engineers and circuit designers, senior undergraduates, graduate students and researchers in microwave and communications engineering.
