Overcome the effects of noise to push the level of circuit performance with this practical reference. Thoroughly explaining the theory of noise in high-frequency circuits, the book focuses on the real-world problems noise creates. It provides you with a full understanding of methods for analyzing and minimizing noise in linear and nonlinear circuits. The book pays special attention to phase noise in oscillators, offering you a comprehensive and accessible treatment of this critical topic. Additionally, this authoritative volume examines noise in low-noise amplifiers, mixers, and frequency multipliers.
