The products that drive the wireless communication industry, such as cell phones and pagers, employ circuits that operate at radio and microwave frequencies. Following on from a highly successful first edition, the second edition provides readers with a detailed introduction to RF and microwave circuits. Throughout, examples from real-world devices and engineering problems are used to great effect to illustrate circuit concepts. * Takes a top-down approach, describing circuits in the overall context of communication systems. * Presents expanded coverage of waveguides and FT mixers. * Discusses new areas such as oscillators design and digital communication. *An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department.
