Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Consumers in the new millennium increasingly rely on sophisticated digital wireless services, thus demanding more sophistication from experts working in radio frequency (RF) and microwave circuits design. Expertise on nonlinear analysis is a must, and this excellent book will help you develop that expertise. It is well written and covers such issues as nonlinear distortion, nonlinear analysis tools, and design methods in nonlinear circuits.

Authors José Carlos Pedro and Nuño Borges Carvalho start by addressing the intermodulation distortion problem, in the most general terms and from a system's perspective. Next, the authors deal with nonlinear distortion characterization from a practical point of view. They present the most commonly used distortion figures of merit as defined from one-tone, two-tone, and multitone tests, and their correspondent laboratory measurement setups. Then, they dedicate their expertise to nonlinear analysis mathematical tools. Although their emphasis is mainly theoretical, the authors also provide an overview of the methods now available for nonlinear analysis of practical circuits and systems, showing some of the more important comparative advantages and pitfalls. Next, a discussion ensues about the mathematical representation of electronic devices. Then, they address circuit design methods for distortion minimization. Finally, they conclude with an analysis of distortion arising in balanced circuits, providing the design engineer with the basic information to direct most practical designs.

This outstanding book is a gold mine of information for electrical engineers and others who need to expand their education from linear circuits and systems to nonlinear analysis. It's a whole new ballgame. John R. Vacca

John R. Vacca, the former computer security official (CSO) for NASA's space station program (Freedom), has written nearly 40 books about advanced storage, computer security, and aerospace technology.
