Artech House announced the publication of "Design and Applications of Active Integrated Antennas" by Mohammad S. Sharawi and Oualid Hammi. Written by leading experts in the field, this authoritative resource guides professionals in the latest methods used to design active integrated antennas (AIA) for wireless communication devices and systems. This book provides complete design procedures for many elements of AIA, such as the matching network, the amplifier/active element, as well as the antenna. This book offers insight into how active integration and co-design between the active components (amplifier, oscillator, mixer, diodes) and the antenna can provide better power transfer, higher gains, increased efficiencies, switched beam patterns and smaller design footprints. It introduces the co-design approach between the active and passive parts of AIA and demonstrates its superior performance over conventional methods.

Complete design examples are given for AIA systems covering narrowband and wideband applications as well as for MIMO systems.  Readers will find the latest design methods for RF matching networks, and amplifier and antenna designs. This book provides a complete listing of the performance metrics for AIA and comprehensive coverage of its various types. The book serves as a complete reference and design guide in the area of AIA.

"Design and Applications of Active Integrated Antennas" is available now from Artech House, a leading publisher of books for professionals in high technology industries.
