Unlike many traditional books on RF and microwave engineering written mainly for the classroom teaching, the second edition of the Microwave and RF Engineering book adopts a practical, hands-on approach to quickly introduce both students and practicing engineers to the principals of this important subject.
The author make extensive use of the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools in the Keysight Genesys software to illustrate the foundational principles of RF and microwave engineering. The use of the EDA methodologies in the book closely parallels the latest tools and techniques commonly used in industry to accelerate the design of RF and microwave circuits and systems.
In general this book provides readers a solid understanding of RF and microwave concepts such as electronic components, Smith chart, S-parameters, transmission lines, impedance matching, resonators, filters and amplifiers. More importantly, it details how the EDA tools are used in the book to analyze, synthesize, simulate, tune, and optimize these essential components into a design flow as practiced in industry. This ensures that the skills learned in this book can be easily and immediately put into practice without the barriers of having to acquire costly and complex EDA tools.
The investment in learning the foundational of RF and microwave circuit design skills and the use of Electronic Design Automation techniques taught in this book provide engineers and students with a valuable knowledge that will remain relevant and sought-after for a long time to come.
