Grounding is a widespread and serious problem in microwave and RF engineering, and up until now, there hasn't been a practical, authoritative resource dedicated to the topic. This first-of-its-kind volume offers you a comprehensive understanding of the proper grounding techniques to use when working on your varied microwave circuit and antenna design projects. You learn what problems can occur when grounding design is inadequate, and how to avoid them. The book covers grounding as it pertains to a wide range of critical topics, from multi-conductor and single conductor transmission lines, transitions between different types of transmission lines, and surface mount components such as amplifiers and filters, to mixed signal printed circuit boards, active microwave component design, and antennas. Supported with over 174 illustrations and utilizing simple derivations and results from numerical electromagnetic simulations of real components, this single resource provides broad, intuitive know-how that helps you overcome design challenges with speed and confidence.
Introduction. Electromagnetic Theory. Transmission Lines, Waveguides and Passive Circuits. Transmission Line Transitions. Active Microwave Devices and Circuits. Antennas. References. Index. Author Biography.
