"Microwave Circuit Design Using Linear and Nonlinear Techniques, Second Edition offers a thorough revision of this successful book on microwave circuit design. The updates represent a shift in interest over a decade since the first edition was published, away from applications for military modules and towards high-volume, commercial wireless applications. Taking a practical approach, the authors emphasize commercial applications in telecommunications and provide a multitude of real-world examples." All chapters from the first edition have been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the most sophisticated modern technology and the latest applications, including computer-aided methods for linear and nonlinear designs used in the production of microwave amplifiers, oscillators, and mixers. All aspects of transistors are covered, from their intrinsic properties to circuit design techniques for maximizing their performance in communications and radar systems.
