Radio Receiver Design
This comprehensive and well-written volume presents a systematic discussion of the characteristics of individual receiver components and their interaction in cascade. Numerous practice examples and exercises function as an integral part of each component's specification. Covers in detail all major components related to receiver design including cascade interaction. Provides excellent introductions and technical background on basic as well as advanced component characteristics, featuring 'war stories, ' exercises, design examples and an abundance of useful drawings and tables. Serves as a reference tool for students and professionals of electrical engineering, RF and microwave electronics, and radio receiver design. Emphasizes practical and proven concepts that help clarify the role of each component within the design. Whether it is used inside or outside the classroom, 'Radio Receiver Design' stands out as a definitive introduction to key concepts involved in receiver design.
