Practical Microwave CircuitsThis book differentiates itself by presenting microwave and RF technology from a circuit design viewpoint, rather than a set of electromagnetic problems. The emphasis is on gaining a practical understanding of often overlooked but vital physical processes. This resource provides microwave circuit engineers with analytical techniques for understanding and designing highfrequency circuits almost entirely from a circuit point of view. Electromagnetic concepts are not avoided, but they are employed only as necessary to support circuittheoretical ones or to describe phenomena such as radiation and surface waves in microstrip.
