Microwave and RF Design: Radio Systems is a circuits- and systems-oriented approach to modern microwave and RF systems. Sufficient details at the circuits and sub-system levels are provided to understand how modern radios are implemented. Design is emphasized throughout. The evolution of radio from what is now known as 0G/ for early radio/ through to 6G/ for sixth generation cellular radio/ is used to present modern microwave and RF engineering concepts. Two key themes unify the text: 1) how system-level decisions affect component/ circuit and subsystem design; and 2) how the capabilities of technologies/ components/ and subsystems impact system design. This book is suitable as both an undergraduate and graduate textbook/ as well as a career-long reference book.
