About this Book
The book provides engineers with a comprehensive guide to RF circuit analysis and wave propagation in order to be able to design new systems. An emphasis is placed on fundamental concepts, engineering techniques, and the regular and intelligent use of the computer design tools. This book contains a review of wireless history and engineering fundamentals including complex numbers, alternating-current theory, and the logarithmic basis of decibels. The important topics in microwave design theory such as, transmission lines, the Smith Chart, and matrix algebra, are discussed. Computer generated examples are used to provide insight into the basic performance, bandwidth, and manufacturing yield of RF and microwave networks. The author also provides a broad presentation of electromagnetic (EM) field theory tailored to the needs of the microwave and RF engineer.
