The ultimate practical resource for today's RF system design professionals Radio frequency components and circuits form the backbone of today's mobile and satellite communications networks. Consequently, both practicing and aspiring industry professionals need to be able to solve ever more complex problems of RF design. Blending theoretical rigor with a wealth of practical expertise, Practical RF System Design addresses a variety of complex, real-world problems that system engineers are likely to encounter in today's burgeoning communications industry with solutions that are not easily available in the existing literature. The author, an expert in the field of RF module and system design, provides powerful techniques for analyzing real RF systems, with emphasis on some that are currently not well understood. Combining theoretical results and models with examples, he challenges readers to address such practical issues as: * How standing wave ratio affects system gain * How noise on a local oscillator will affect receiver noise figure and desensitization * How to determine the dynamic range of a cascade from module specifications * How phase noise affects system performance and where it comes from * How intermodulation products (IMs) predictably change with signal amplitude, and why they sometimes change differently An essential resource for today's RF system engineers, the text covers important topics in the areas of system noise and nonlinearity, frequency conversion, and phase noise. Along with a wealth of practical examples using MATLAB(r) and Excel, spreadsheets are available for download from an FTP Web site to help readers apply the methods outlined in this important resource.

This textbook provides a fundamental approach to RF and microwave engineering. It is unusual for the thoroughness with which these areas are presented. The effect is that the reader comes away with a deep insight not only of the design formulation but answers to how and why those formulations work. This is especially valuable for engineers whose careers involve research and product development, wherein the applicability of the applied principles must be understood. The scope of this book extends from topics for a first course in electrical engineering, in which impedances are analyzed using complex numbers, through the introduction of transmission lines that are analyzed using the Smith Chart, and on to graduate level subjects, such as equivalent circuits for obstacles in hollow waveguides, analyzed using Green’s Functions. This book is a virtual encyclopedia of circuit design methods. Despite the complexity, topics are presented in a conversational manner for ease of comprehension. The book is not only an excellent text at the undergraduate and graduate levels, but is as well a detailed reference for the practicing engineer. Consider how well informed an engineer will be who has become familiar with these topics as treated in High Frequency Techniques: (in order of presentation) Brief history of wireless (radio) and the Morse code U.S. Radio Frequency Allocations Introduction to vectors AC analysis and why complex numbers and impedance are used Circuit and antenna reciprocity Decibel measure Maximum power transfer Skin effect Computer simulation and optimization of networks LC matching of one impedance to another Coupled Resonators Uniform transmission lines for propagation VSWR, return Loss and mismatch error The Telegrapher Equations (derived) Phase and Group Velocities The Impedance Transformation Equation for lines (derived) Fano’s and Bode’s matching limits The Smith Chart (derived) Slotted Line impedance measurement Constant Q circles on the Smith Chart Approximating a transmission line with lumped L’s and C’s ABCD, Z, Y and Scattering matrix analysis methods for circuits Statistical Design and Yield Analysis of products Electromagnetic Fields Gauss’s Law Vector Dot Product, Divergence and Curl Static Potential and Gradient Ampere’s Law and Vector Curl Maxwell’s Equations and their visualization The Laplacian Rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinates Skin Effect The Wave Equation The Helmholtz Equations Plane Propagating Waves Rayleigh Fading Circular (elliptic) Polarization Poynting’s Theorem EM fields on Transmission Lines Calculating the impedance of coaxial lines Calculating and visualizing the fields in waveguides Propagation constants and waveguide modes The Taylor Series Expansion Fourier Series and Green’s Functions Higher order modes and how to suppress them Vector Potential and Retarded Potentials Wire and aperture antennas Radio propagation and path loss Electromagnetic computer simulation of structures Directional couplers The Rat Race Hybrid Even and Odd Mode Analysis applied to the backward wave coupler Network analyzer impedance and transmission measurements Two-port Scattering Parameters (s matrix) The Hybrid Ring coupler The Wilkinson power divider Filter design: Butterworth, Maximally flat & Tchebyscheff responses Filter Q Diplexer, Bandpass and Elliptic filters Richard’s Transformation & Kuroda’s Identities Mumford’s transmission line stub filters Transistor Amplifier Design: gain, biasing, stability, and conjugate matching Noise in systems, noise figure of an amplifier cascade Amplifier non-linearity, and spurious free dynamic range Statistical Design and Yield Analysis
