CRC; 1 ed 2000 | ISBN: 084938592X | PDF | 1376 p.| English | 49 MB
The recent shift in focus from defense and government work to commercial wireless efforts has caused the job of the typical microwave engineer to change dramatically. The modern microwave and RF engineer is expected to know customer expectations, market trends, manufacturing technologies, and factory models to a degree that is unprecedented in the history of RF/microwave engineering. With a broad, balanced range of material, The RF and Microwave Handbook provides you with the means to understand and use these factors to improve your overall performance. With contributions from 100 prominent researchers and practitioners, this outstanding work is filled with essential information on microwave theory, techniques, and applications. It provides an overview of microwave and RF products including both existing and emerging commercial wireless applications, such as cellular phones and wireless LANs, as well as traditional military applications such as radar and electronic countermeasures. Among the topics discussed, the book deals extensively with: Technical constraints: thermal issues, modulations schemes, power supply limitations, reliability considerations, and safety and environmental issues Circuit design issues: receivers, transmitters, power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, oscillators, phase locked loops, filters, multiplexers, RF switches, mixers, and modulation circuitry Passive and active device technologies: cables, connectors, antennas, and packaging, as well as semiconductor and IC technologies This detailed and comprehensive handbook provides microwave engineers and other electrical engineers with information outside of their area of expertise, and presents managers and marketers with the tools to better understand the fields driving their decisions. With important information pertaining to industry, government, and academia, The RF and Microwave Handbook serves as a single-volume comprehensive reference for everyone in the industry.
