Focusing on the design of microwave circuits and components, this valuable reference offers professionals and students an introduction to the fundamental concepts necessary for real world design. The author successfully introduces Maxwell's equations, wave propagation, network analysis, and design principles as applied to modern microwave engineering. A considerable amount of material in this book is related to the design of specific microwave circuits and components, for both practical and motivational value. It also presents the analysis and logic behind these designs so that the reader can see and understand the process of applying the fundamental concepts to arrive at useful results. The derivations are well laid out and the majority of each chapter's formulas are displayed in a nice tabular format every few pages. This Third Edition offers greatly expanded coverage with new material on: Noise; Nonlinear effects; RF MEMs; transistor power amplifiers; FET mixers; oscillator phase noise; transistor oscillators and frequency multiplier.
Comprehensive, up-to-date, and applied coverage of modern microwave engineering
Complete with practical applications and clear design procedures, Pozar's Third Edition of MICROWAVE ENGINEERING offers a comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of the field. Based on fundamental principles of electrical engineering, the text shows that microwave circuits and devices can be explained through the use of circuit theory, Maxwell's equations, and related concepts.
Now updated and revised, this Third Edition features new material on active circuit design, nonlinear effects, and noise.
* New and revised coverage: The third Edition presents new materials on capacitively coupled resonator filters, RF MEMS, transistor power amplifiers, transistor oscillators, frequency multipliers, oscillator phase noise, and FET mixers, as well as substantially revised coverage of a number of topics.
* Many examples covering both theory and design: Examples, including many that are new or revised for this edition, show how typical problems are solved, how typical designs are carried out, and how typical component designs perform.
* A wide variety of problems: Problems, including many that are new or revised, also cover both theory and design. Answers to selected problems provide opportunities for self-assessment.
* Discussion of both the how and the why of microwave engineering: The text begins with fundamental concepts, then builds on these to show how microwave components and circuits operate, and how they are designed.
* Extra resource on the Web: The web site for this text includes a Laboratory Manual of experiments from the University of Massachusetts and related files for using Ansoft's Serenade Microwave CAD package for several of the examples and problems in the book.
