The main thrust of the rapid advance of microwave technology over the past four decades has been directed toward and powered by the development of new solid-state devices and circuits. In many cases, however, technological development has advanced with such speed that it has laxed the ability of professionals and educators to keep up with it, leaving both students and working electrical engineers with an incomplete knowledge of modern microwave technologies. Microwave Solid-State Circuits and Applications offers a comprehensive presentation of microwave technologies based on solid-state devices and circuits, with emphasis on operational principles and techniques for incorporating these devices into circuit applications. Fundamental design equations are derived and practical examples are given whenever possible. More than 300 illustrations serve to clarify principles and concepts under discussion, and a set of problems at the end of each chapter helps strengthen students' grasp of the subject. The book is organized into three sections: a review of fundamental principles in transmission lines and circuits, and semiconductor physics; two-terminal solid-state devices, circuits, and applications; and three-terminal solid-state devices, circuits, and applications. In addition, there is a special chapter on noise figures and some system parameters for receiver design. An ideal textbook for one-semester, senior-level or graduate courses in microwave solid-state circuits, this self-contained volume is also an excellent reference for practicing microwave, antenna, and solid-state engineers.
