RF Circuit Design Book Review:

Summarizes the schemes and technologies in RF circuit design, describes the basic parameters of an RF system and the fundamentals of RF system design, and presents an introduction of the individual RF circuit block design. Forming the backbone of today's mobile and satellite communications networks, radio frequency (RF) components and circuits are incorporated into everything that transmits or receives a radio wave, such as mobile phones, radio, WiFi, and walkie talkies. RF Circuit Design, Second Edition immerses practicing and aspiring industry professionals in the complex world of RF design. Completely restructured and reorganized with new content, end-of-chapter exercises, illustrations, and an appendix, the book presents integral information in three complete sections: Part One explains the different methodologies between RF and digital circuit design and covers voltage and power transportation, impedance matching in narrow-band case and wide-band case, gain of a raw device, measurement, and grounding. It also goes over equipotentiality and current coupling on ground surface, as well as layout and packaging, manufacturability of product design, and radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC). Part Two includes content on the main parameters and system analysis in RF circuit design, the fundamentals of differential pair and common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR), Balun, and system-on-a-chip (SOC). Part Three covers low-noise amplifier (LNA), power amplifier (PA), voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), mixers, and tunable filters. RF Circuit Design, Second Edition is an ideal book for engineers and managers who work in RF circuit design and for courses in electrical or electronic engineering.

Magnetic resonance imaging, semiconductor processing, and RFID are some of the critical applications within the medium frequency (MF) to ultrahigh frequency (UHF) range that require RF designers to have a solid understanding of analytical and experimental RF techniques. Designers need to be able to design components and devices cost effectively, and integrate them with high efficiency, minimal loss, and required power. Computer-aided design (CAD) tools also play an important part in helping to reduce costs and improve accuracy through optimization. RF Circuit Design Techniques for MF-UHF Applications explains how to design, simulate, and implement RF/microwave components and devices for applications within the medium frequency (MF) to ultrahigh frequency (UHF) range. The book makes RF design simple by expertly blending theory, simulation, and practical application examples. A Practical Guide to RF Circuit Design in the MF-UHF Range: Theory, Simulation, and Real-World Application Examples After a review of network parameters used in the analysis of RF components and devices, the book examines MF-UHF design techniques in detail. These include techniques for designing high-power microstrip circuits, directional couplers, transformers, composite and multilayer inductors, filters, combiners/dividers, and RFID systems. For every device, the book gives the required theory and then explains the verification process with CAD tools. In addition, each design is illustrated with real-life implementation examples that use a variety of CAD tools such as MATLAB®, Mathcad, HFSSTM, Ansoft Designer®, Sonnet®, and PSpice®. Design tables, curves, and charts are included to demonstrate an efficient design process. Throughout, the book also offers practical hints to help engineers shorten the design time. Design MF-UHF Devices More Cost-Effectively The book reflects the optimum design methodology used in RF engineering, from the application of theory, to simulation for verification, to experimentation. Packed with useful techniques, tips, and examples, it is an invaluable resource for engineers, researchers, and students working in the MF-UHF range.

An Introduction to RF Circuit Design for Communication Systems Book Review:

This book provides an insight into techniques that are commonly used in the design of modern RF communications equipment. Although the emphasis is on equipment or circuits that are part of communication systems, information is provided on a variety of general electronic design topics. It is assumed that the reader has a general understanding of basic electronic concepts, such as that required to pass the U.S. General or the Canadian Advanced Amateur exam. No special mathematical skills should be necessary to make use of the material that is presented - basic Grade 10 algebra will be sufficient. No calculus will be used at any time. Some basic trigonometry is required in a few places, but a simple tutorial on the necessary concepts is provided in one of the Appendices. This is not intended to be a formal text book with rigorous explanations, derivations, and difficult mathematics. It is assumed that the reader would prefer to get a good understanding of how circuits work, with just enough detail so that designs can be analyzed in a basic manner. Where appropriate, approximations and "rules of thumb" will be disclosed that can often simplify the design process. The book includes several design examples.

As applications of RF and microwaves continue to evolve and as this technology becomes a common factor in the scientific and engineering communities it is imperative that university students and practicing scientists and engineers become thoroughly familiar with the measurement principles, electronics, and design fundamentals underlying this technology. Advanced RF & Microwave Circuit Design is the quickest way to master this powerful subject, and information contained within the pages of this book will make every key electronic, measurement, and design principle you need a simple task. The book introduces concepts on a wide range of materials and has several advantages over existing texts, including: 1. The presentation of a series of scientific postulates and axioms, which lays the foundation for any of the engineering sciences and is unique to this book compared with similar RF and Microwave texts. 2. The presentation of classical laws and principles of electricity and magnetism, all inter-related, conceptually and graphically. 3. There is a shift of emphasis from rigorousmathematical solutions of Maxwell's equations, and instead has been aptly placed on simple yet fundamental concepts that underlie these equations. This shift of emphasis will promote a deeper understanding of the electronics, particularly at RF/Microwave frequencies. 4. Fundamentals of electronics have been amply treated, which makes an easy transition to RF/Microwave principles and prevents a gap of knowledge in the reader's mind.
