Overview

The Newnes Know It All Series takes the best of what our authors have written to create hard-working desk references that will be an engineer's first port of call for key information, design techniques and rules of thumb. Guaranteed not to gather dust on a shelf!

RF (radio frequency) and wireless technologies drive communication today. This technology and its applications enable wireless phones, portable device roaming, and short-range industrial and commercial application communication such as the supply chain management wonder, RFID. Up-to-date information regarding software defined RF, using frequencies smarter, and using more of the spectrum, with ultrawideband technology is detailed.
detailed.

• A 360-degree view from best-selling authors including Roberto Aiello, Bruce Fette, and Praphul Chandra
• Hot topics covered including ultrawideband and cognitive radio technologies
• The ultimate hard-working desk reference: all the essential information, techniques, and tricks of the trade in one volume
