RF Front-end: World Class Designs

Janine Sullivan Love, Ed.

Janine Sullivan Love has selected the very best RF design material from the Newnes portfolio and has compiled it into this volume. The result is a book covering the gamut of RF front-end design from antenna and filter design fundamentals to optimized layout techniques with a strong pragmatic emphasis. In addition to specific design techniques and practices, this book also discusses various approaches to solving RF front-end design problems and how to successfully apply theory to actual design tasks. The material has been selected for its timelessness as well as for its relevance to contemporary RF front-end design issues.

Microwave Engineering: Land & Space Radiocommunications

Gerard Barue

In Microwave Engineering: Land & Space Radiocommunications, find an introduction to the main propagation phenomena vital to the design and planning of any given system type and frequency of operation. This book presents the phenomenon of propagation of electromagnetic waves in frequency bands, wave propagation, antennas, atmospheric and ionospheric influences, terrain influence, and weather conditions and their effect on signal transmission. Practical aspects such as path profiles, link loss budgets, performance predictions, equipment arrangements, and sizing of the required supporting infrastructure to support microwave, space and optical transmission links are covered. This book provides a complete conceptual treatment of securing information and transporting it over a secure network in a manner that does not require a strong mathematical background.
