This text for students and engineers...describes the design and analysis of radio-frequency and microwave circuits in modern communications systems.
This text for students and engineers (especially those in the field of wireless technology) describes the design and analysis of radio- frequency and microwave circuits in modern communications systems. Misra (electrical engineering, U. of Wisconsin, Milwaukee) begins with an overview of frequency bands, RF and microwave devices, and applications. Some of the aspects covered include satellite communication, transmission lines, resonant circuits, impedance, filter and oscillator design, and detectors and mixers. The text is designed for readers who have had a basic course in electronic circuits. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
