The ultimate handbook on microwave circuit design with CAD. Full of tips and insights from seasoned industry veterans, Microwave Circuit Design offers practical, proven advice on improving the design quality of microwave passive and active circuits-while cutting costs and time. Covering all levels of microwave circuit design from the elementary to the very advanced, the book systematically presents computer-aided methods for linear and nonlinear designs used in the design and manufacture of microwave amplifiers, oscillators, and mixers. Using the newest CAD tools, the book shows how to design transistor and diode circuits, and also details CAD's usefulness in microwave integrated circuit (MIC) and monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) technology. Applications of nonlinear SPICE programs, now available for microwave CAD, are described. State-of-the-art coverage includes microwave transistors (HEMTs, MODFETs, MESFETs, HBTs, and more), high-power amplifier design, oscillator design including feedback topologies, phase noise and examples, and more. The techniques presented are illustrated with several MMIC designs, including a wideband amplifier, a low-noise amplifier, and an MMIC mixer. This unique, one-stop handbook also features a major case study of an actual anticollision radar transceiver, which is compared in detail against CAD predictions; examples of actual circuit designs with photographs of completed circuits; and tables of design formulae.

From the Back Cover:

Thoroughly updated with the latest computer-aided methods

Microwave Circuit Design Using Linear and Nonlinear Techniques, Second Edition offers a thorough revision of this successful book on microwave circuit design. The updates represent a shift in interest over a decade since the first edition was published, away from applications for military modules and towards high-volume, commercial wireless applications. Taking a practical approach, the authors emphasize commercial applications in telecommunications and provide a multitude of real-world examples.

All chapters from the first edition have been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the most sophisticated modern technology and the latest applications, including computer-aided methods for linear and nonlinear designs used in the production of microwave amplifiers, oscillators, and mixers. All aspects of transistors are covered, from their intrinsic properties to circuit design techniques for maximizing their performance in communications and radar systems. Readers familiar with the previous edition will note several new and important additions, including:

  • Software tools for the design of microwave circuits. Student versions of the relevant software can be downloaded free of charge from Ansoft Corporation at http://ansoft.com/ansoftdesignersv
  • A separate chapter on two-port networks and their characteristics
  • Four new chapters on RF/microwave systems, lumped and distributed elements, microwave filters, and RF switches and attenuators
  • An expanded oscillator chapter with new coverage of BiCMOS and SiGe HBT oscillators

The three authors of this publication, all IEEE Fellows, have many decades of hands-on experience and are all recognized as industry leaders. In addition, the authors have enlisted contributions from several noted experts from industry and academia. Complementing the top-notch design techniques, special features are provided in each chapter to assist readers in their research efforts:

  • References and bibliographies that provide further avenues of investigation into specific topics
  • Problem sets that test readers' understanding of key concepts and design techniques

This is an essential reference for all designers and researchers who need to know how to apply the latest techniques in microwave integrated circuit design. Distinguished by its comprehensive coverage and clear presentation, Microwave Circuit Design Using Linear and Nonlinear Techniques, Second Edition is the premier reference tool for today's and tomorrow's electrical engineers.
