More About This Textbook


Schaub and Kelly, both radio frequency (RF) technical consultants, offer an in-depth overview of RF and system-on-chip (SOC) product testing for wireless communications in this resource for SOC applications engineers, engineering managers, product engineers, and students. Early chapters introduce production testing, look at RF and SOC devices, and discuss issues related to costs. These chapters will be especially useful for managers of technical teams. Later chapters are written as a handbook for applications engineers, covering algorithms for production tests performed on discrete RF devices, measurements used with more highly integrated SOC devices, mixed-signal testing, improving test efficiency, and measurement of noise.

    A must have for any engineer in ATE!

    The ATE industry has long awaited a book that addresses the merger of digital, mixed signal and RF testing in the SOC domain. The book has many examples and explanations of technologies like Bluetooth, WLAN 802.11x and CDMA
