RF and Microwave Circuit Design: A Design Approach Using (ADS)

Front Cover
Techno Search, Aug 5, 2015 - Microwave circuits - 424 pages

Microwave Engineering is a vast subject with topics ranging from semiconductor physics to electromagnetic theory. This textbook covers the microwave and RF engineering topics from an Electronic Design Automation (EDA) approach. The topics includes RF and microwave concepts and components, transmission lines, network parameters, maximum power transfer requirements, lumped and distributed impedance matching, and several linear amplifier designs. Almost all subject matters covered in the textbook are accompanied by examples that are solved using the latest version of Keysight ADS software. University students and practicing engineers will find this book both as a potent learning tool and as a reference guide to quickly setup designs using the ADS software. The book thoroughly covers the basics as well as introducing techniques that may not be familiar to some engineers. This includes subjects such as the frequent use of the MATLAB Script capability.
