Fundamentals of RF and Microwave Techniques and Technologies (Hardcover)
The increase of consumer, medical and sensors electronics using radio frequency (RF) and microwave (MW) circuits has implications on overall performances if design is not robust and optimized for a given applications. The current and later generation communication systems and Internet of Thing (IoT) demand for robust electronic circuits with optimized performance and functionality, but low cost, size, and power consumption. As a result, there is a need for a textbook that provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject. This book provides state-of-the-art coverage of RF and Microwave Techniques and Technologies, covers important topics: transmission-line theory, passive and semiconductor devices, active and passive microwave circuits and receiver systems, as well as antennas, noise and digital signal modulation schemes. With an emphasis on theory, design, and applications, this book is targeted to students, teachers, scientists, and practicing design engineers who are interested in broadening their knowledge of RF and microwave electronic circuit design. Readers will also benefit from a unique integration of theory and practice, provides the readers a solid understanding of the RF and microwave concepts, active and passive components, antenna, and modulation schemes. Readers will learn to solve common design problems ranging from selection of components, matching networks to biasing and stability, and digital modulation techniques. More importantly, it provides basic understanding in the analysis and design of RF and microwave circuits in a manner that is practiced in industry. This make sure that the know-how learned in this book can be effortlessly and straightway put into practice without any obstacles.
