Overview

This book targets the four most difficult skills facing RF/RFIC designers today: impedance matching, RF/AC grounding, Six Sigma design, and RFIC technology. Unlike most books on the market, it presents readers with practical engineering design examples to explore how they're used to solve ever more complex problems. The content is divided into three key parts: Individual RF block circuit design, Basic RF circuit design skills, RF system engineering.
