Millimeter-Wave Integrated Circuits
Millimeter-Wave Integrated Circuits delivers a detailed overview of MMIC design, specifically focusing on designs for the millimeter-wave (mm-wave) frequency range. The scope of the book is broad, spanning detailed discussions of high-frequency materials and technologies, high-frequency devices, and the design of high-frequency circuits. The design material is supplemented as appropriate by theoretical analyses. The broad scope of the book gives the reader a good theoretical and practical understanding of mm-wave circuit design. It is best-suited for both undergraduate students who are reading or studying high frequency circuit design and postgraduate students who are specializing in the mm-wave field.
Today, there is a lack of quality textbooks addressing the needs of the mm-wave IC designer. This is not surprising given the explosive growth of the field, which is being fueled by the emergence of a number of high-volume mm-wave applications. There is an urgent need for a textbook that provides a broad overview of the field, and at the same time delves in considerable detail into a number of key mm-wave circuit design topics. The material on low noise amplifiers and frequency multipliers is particularly novel and should be of interest to the engineering community at large
