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.
