RF Electronics: Design and Simulation

For RF electronic design, managing everything from transmission lines to impedance, frequency bands, and power amplifiers can all qualify circuit difficulties.

In RF and Microwave wireless systems and circuit design environments, there are many factors at work in order to create design success. Thankfully, circuit analysis options for transmission line voltages, impedance values, targeting necessary frequency bands, as well as for utilizing resource intensive components like power amplifiers of LTCC multilayered embeds all exist and are capable of carrying forth the innovation goals you have. 

The following topics are discussed in this eBook:

  • Computer Simulation
  • Transformers and Hybrids
  • Transmission Line Transformers and Hybrids
  • Frequency Mixers
  • Oscillators
  • RF Filters
  • Amplifiers: Stability, Noise and Gain
  • Impedance Matching of Power Amplifiers
  • Operational Amplifiers
  • Circuit Manufacture
  • Importing Local Vendor and XML Libraries

RF Electronics - Design and Simulation eBook is authored by Professor Keith Kikkert of James Cook University.
