The increase of consumer electronics and communications applications using Radio Frequency (RF) and microwave circuits has implications for oscillator design. Applications working at higher frequencies and using novel technologies have led to a demand for more robust circuits with higher performance and functionality, but decreased costs, size and power consumption. As a result, there is also a need for more efficient oscillators.

This book presents up to date information on all aspects of oscillator design, enabling a selection of the best oscillator topologies with optimized noise reduction and electrical performance. RF and Microwave Transistor Oscillator Design covers:

  • analyses of non-linear circuit design methods including spectral-domain analysis, time-domain analysis and the quasilinear method;
  • information on noise in oscillators including chapters on varactor and oscillator frequency tuning, CMOS voltage-controlled oscillators and wideband voltage-controlled oscillators;
  • information on the stability of oscillations, with discussions on the stability of multi-resonant circuits and the phase plane method;
  • optimized design and circuit techniques, beginning with the empirical and analytic design approaches, moving on to the high-efficiency design technique;
  • general operation and design principles of oscillators, including a section on the historical aspects of oscillator configurations.

A valuable reference for practising RF and Microwave designers and engineers, RF and Microwave Transistor Oscillator Design is also useful for lecturers, advanced students and research and design (R&D) personnel.

RF System Design of Transceivers for Wireless Communications is for RF Engineers and, in particular, those engineers focusing mostly on RF systems and RFIC design. The author develops systematic methods for RF systems design, complete with a comprehensive set of design formulas. Its focus on mobile station transmitter and receiver system design also applies to transceiver design of other wireless systems such as WLAN. The book is filled with detailed wireless systems design information, and addresses specifications that are critical for the design process.

Additional highlights include:

- Fundamental information on communications, signal and system theories

- Coverage of superheterodyne, direct-conversion, low-IF, and band-pass sampling radio architectures

- Frequency planning, system link budgeting, and performance evaluation of transmitters and receivers

- Nonlinearity effect analyses involving intermodulation, interferer blocking, spectrum regrowth and modulation

- Approaches for specifying RF ASICs on which mobile systems are built

- AGC systems, ADC dynamic range consideration and power management are addressed

- In-depth treatment of both theoretical and practical aspects of mobile station RF system design

This comprehensive reference work covers a wide range of topics from general principles of communication theory, as it applies to digital radio designs to specific examples on implementing multimode mobile systems. Wireless engineering professionals will definitely find this an invaluable reference book.
