This unique how-to book is an ideal introduction to electromagnetic field-solvers. It provides professionals with helpful advice on selecting the right tools for their RF and high-speed digital circuit design work. The focus is on the strengths and weaknesses of the major commercial software packages. Featuring full-color illustrations, this practical resource offers you invaluable tips and techniques on the use and evaluation of these products. A generous amount of case study material is presented, including a "what went wrong in the design process" discussion, when applicable. Color plots of current density and various field quantities included throughout the book help practitioners better understand the fundamental behavior of the circuits being studied. The book stresses the impact of meshing, geometrical resolution, and convergence on the solution process, explaining how to better control and greatly influence the quality and speed of the solution. Microwave Circuit Modeling Using Electromagnetic Field Simulation also features specific design information on transitions in multilayer PCBs and PCB connectors that is not available in any other book.
