An essential text for both students and professionals, combiningdetailed theory with clear practical guidance

This outstanding book explores a large spectrum of topics withinmicrowave and radio frequency (RF) engineering, encompassingelectromagnetic theory, microwave circuits and components. Itprovides thorough descriptions of the most common microwave testinstruments and advises on semiconductor device modelling.

With examples taken from the authors' own experience, this bookalso covers:

  • network and signal theory;
  • electronic technology with guided electromagneticpropagation;
  • microwave circuits such as linear and non-linear circuits,resonant circuits and cavities, monolithic microwave circuits(MMICs), wireless architectures and integrated circuits;
  • passive microwave components, control components;
  • microwave filters and matching networks.
  • Simulation files are included in a CD Rom, found inside thebook.

Microwave and RF Engineering presents up-to-date researchand applications at different levels of difficulty, creating auseful tool for a first approach to the subject as well as forsubsequent in-depth study. It is therefore indispensable readingfor advanced professionals and designers who operate at highfrequencies as well as senior students who are first approachingthe subject.

About the author (2010)

Roberto Sorrentino received the Laurea degree inElectronic Engineering from the University of Rome “LaSapienza”, Rome, Italy, in 1971, where he was an AssociateProfessor until 1986. From 1986 to 1990 he was a Professor at theUniversity of Rome “Tor Vergata”. Since 1990 he hasbeen a Professor at the University of Perugia, Perugia, Italy. Hehas authored and co-authored over 100 technical papers ininternational journals, 300 refereed conference papers and threebooks in the area of the analysis and design of microwave passivecircuits and antennas. He is an IEEE Fellow (1990), a recipient ofthe IEEE Third Millennium Medal (2000) and of the DistinguishedEducator Award from IEEE MTT-S (2004). He was the President of theEuropean Microwave Association from 1998 to 2009.

Giovanni Bianchi received the Laurea degree inElectronic Engineering from the University of Rome “LaSapienza”, Rome, Italy,  in 1987. In 1988, he joined themicrowave department of Electtronica S.p.A. where ie was involvedin microwave components (including GaAs MMICs) and subassemblydesign. He joined Motorola PCS in 2000, where he worked on GSM andWCDMA mobile phone design, and in 2004 joined SDS S.r.L where hewas responsible for microwave designs. Since January 2008 he hasworked as a R&D Engineer in the hardware/RF division at Verigy,and is an expert in high frequency theory and techniques. In his 23years of design experience he has covered both passive and activemicrowave components, including filters, amplifiers, oscillators,and synthesizers. He is the author of four books (including thepresent one) as well as 12 papers.
