This is a practical introduction to modern RF circuit design. The content is aimed at those learning to design RF circuitry and users of modern RF equipment such as signal generators and sweepers, spectrum and network-analysers.
Pressure on the RF spectrum has never been greater and it is people with knowledge and skills of RF design who are now in demand in the electronics industry to design, produce, maintain and use equipment capable of working in this crowded environment. This is a valuable source for all RF engineers.
Ian Hickman is the leading designer and writer on analog and RF technology. He is the author of many successful books, including Analog Electronics, Oscilloscopes and the Analog Circuits Cookbook. Here he takes Practical and non-mathematical approach to the subject. There are some RF texts on single topics (e.g. on oscillators, filters, phase locked loops etc) but no book is available covering the whole of RF technology. Most RF engineers have to learn the trade by making all their own mistakes, whereas this book makes the practical experience of others available to them, significantly shortening the learning process.
This new edition covers antennas and propagation in more detail, has new appendices giving useful addresses and contacts, plus another detailing frequency allocations, and has a new chapter covering the thorny problem of EMC regulations.
