Overview

Pozar's new edition of Microwave Engineering includes more material on active circuits, noise, nonlinear effects, and wireless systems. Chapters on noise and nonlinear distortion, and active devices have been added along with the coverage of noise and more material on intermodulation distortion and related nonlinear effects. On active devices, there's more updated material on bipolar junction and field effect transistors.

New and updated material on wireless communications systems, including link budget, link margin, digital modulation methods, and bit error rates is also part of the new edition. Other new material includes a section on transients on transmission lines, the theory of power waves, a discussion of higher order modes and frequency effects for microstrip line, and a discussion of how to determine unloaded.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for a two-semester course for senior or first-year graduate engineering students. Includes material for those with less than an undergraduate level background in electromagnetics. Emphasizes the fundamental concepts of Maxwell's equations, wave propagation, network analysis, and design principles. The second edition includes more coverage of active circuits, and to make room for it, drops some peripheral material included in the first, for which no date is given.
