Microwave Circuit Design Using Linear and Nonlinear Techniques
Vendelin, George D., Pavio, Anthony M., Rohde, Ulrich L.
Four leaders in the field of microwave circuit design share their newest insights into the latest aspects of the technology
The third edition of Microwave Circuit Design Using Linear and Nonlinear Techniques delivers an insightful and complete analysis of microwave circuit design, from their intrinsic and circuit properties to circuit design techniques for maximizing performance in communication and radar systems. This new edition retains what remains relevant from previous editions of this celebrated book and adds brand-new content on CMOS technology, GaN, SiC, frequency range, and feedback power amplifiers in the millimeter range region. The third edition contains over 200 pages of new material.
The distinguished engineers, academics, and authors emphasize the commercial applications in telecommunications and cover all aspects of transistor technology. Software tools for design and microwave circuits are included as an accompaniment to the book. In addition to information about small and large-signal amplifier design and power amplifier design, readers will benefit from the book's treatment of a wide variety of topics, like:
- An in-depth discussion of the foundations of RF and microwave systems, including Maxwell's equations, applications of the technology, analog and digital requirements, and elementary definitions
- A treatment of lumped and distributed elements, including a discussion of the parasitic effects on lumped elements
- Descriptions of active devices, including diodes, microwave transistors, heterojunction bipolar transistors, and microwave FET
- Two-port networks, including S-Parameters from SPICE analysis and the derivation of transducer power gain
Perfect for microwave integrated circuit designers, the third edition of Microwave Circuit Design Using Linear and Nonlinear Techniques also has a place on the bookshelves of electrical engineering researchers and graduate students. It's comprehensive take on all aspects of transistors by world-renowned experts in the field places this book at the vanguard of microwave circuit design research.
