Overview

There have been significant advances in the synthesis and physical realization of microwave filter networks, but until now, no book has provided a coherent and readable description of system requirements and constraints, fundamental considerations in theory and design, up-to-date synthesis techniques, or EM-based design tools. Microwave Filters for Communication Systems fills the need for such a book, providing comprehensive coverage of microwave filter design and applications for communication systems.

Distinct features of the book include: System considerations in filter design, General formulation and synthesis of filter functions, Synthesis techniques for low-pass prototype filters, Application of modern EM-based design techniques, Design and tradeoffs of various multiplexer configurations, Computer-aided filter tuning, High-power considerations for terrestrial and space applications. This topical book provides students and practitioners with a strong theoretical understanding of filter design, as well as the EM-based tools being used in the optimization of microwave filter and multiplexing networks.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Provides by far the most comprehensive coverage available of powerful design techniques involving the use of coupling matrices. This is a book that every microwave filter design specialist will want to study and have on their bookshelf. It could also be the text for an advanced course on filter design." (IEEE Microwave Magazine, October 2008)
