In the fast-paced, "I-need-it-done-by-yesterday" world of microwave engineering, it's more important than ever to get your circuit designs up-and-running on time and to specifications. Authored by a well-known expert in the industry, this unique new book helps you do just that by presenting no-nonsense, proven-under-fire microwave circuit design "recipes" that you can follow for fast design results -- without having to wade through pages of theoretical or academic rhetoric.
The RF and Microwave Circuit Design Cookbook is written solely for today's practicing engineer. Using a lively, easy-to-read style, it reveals practical, tested methods for designing and implementing a wide range of nonlinear RF and microwave circuits, including all types of mixers, frequency multipliers, and more. A special feature is a complete treatment of FET resistive mixers, which offer the lowest intermodulation distortion of all types of mixers. You also get hard-to-find information on creating both square law and envelope diode detectors.
