Free sample

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.

The increase of consumer electronics and communicationsapplications using Radio Frequency (RF) and microwave circuits hasimplications for oscillator design. Applications working at higherfrequencies and using novel technologies have led to a demand formore robust circuits with higher performance and functionality, butdecreased costs, size and power consumption. As a result, there isalso a need for more efficient oscillators.

This book presents up to date information on all aspects ofoscillator design, enabling a selection of the best oscillatortopologies with optimized noise reduction and electricalperformance. RF and Microwave Transistor Oscillator Designcovers:

analyses of non-linear circuit design methods includingspectral-domain analysis, time-domain analysis and the quasilinearmethod;information on noise in oscillators including chapters onvaractor and oscillator frequency tuning, CMOS voltage-controlledoscillators and wideband voltage-controlled oscillators;information on the stability of oscillations, with discussionson the stability of multi-resonant circuits and the phase planemethod;optimized design and circuit techniques, beginning with theempirical and analytic design approaches, moving on to thehigh-efficiency design technique;general operation and design principles of oscillators,including a section on the historical aspects of oscillatorconfigurations.

A valuable reference for practising RF and Microwave designersand engineers, RF and Microwave Transistor Oscillator Designis also useful for lecturers, advanced students and research anddesign (R&D) personnel.

This book provides a fundamental and practical introductionto radio frequency and microwave engineering and physical aspectsof wireless communication

In this book, the author addresses a wide range ofradio-frequency and microwave topics with emphasis on physicalaspects including EM and voltage waves, transmission lines, passivecircuits, antennas, radio wave propagation. Up-to-date RF designtools like RF circuit simulation, EM simulation and computerizedsmith charts, are used in various examples to demonstrate how thesemethods can be applied effectively in RF engineering practice.

Design rules and working examples illustrate the theoreticalparts. The examples are close to real world problems, so the readercan directly transfer the methods within the context of their ownwork. At the end of each chapter a list of problems is given inorder to deepen the reader’s understanding of the chaptermaterial and practice the new competences. Solutions are availableon the author’s website.

Key Features:

Presents a wide range of RF topics with emphasis on physicalaspects e.g. EM and voltage waves, transmission lines, passivecircuits, antennasUses various examples of modern RF tools that show how themethods can be applied productively in RF engineering practiceIncorporates various design examples using circuit andelectromagnetic (EM) simulation softwareDiscusses the propagation of waves: their representation, theireffects, and their utilization in passive circuits and antennastructuresProvides a list of problems at the end of each chapterIncludes an accompanying website containing solutions to theproblems (http:\\www.fh-dortmund.de\gustrau_rf_textbook)This will be an invaluable textbook for bachelor andmasters students on electrical engineering courses(microwave engineering, basic circuit theory and electromagneticfields, wireless communications). Early-stage RF practitioners,engineers (e.g. application engineer) working in this area willalso find this book of interest.
