The products that drive the wireless communication industry, such as cell phones and pagers, employ circuits that operate at radio and microwave frequencies. Following on from a highly successful first edition, the second edition provides readers with a detailed introduction to RF and microwave circuits. Throughout, examples from real-world devices and engineering problems are used to great effect to illustrate circuit concepts.
* Takes a top-down approach, describing circuits in the overall context of communication systems.
* Presents expanded coverage of waveguides and FT mixers.
* Discusses new areas such as oscillators design and digital communication.

*An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department.

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 (
