Here's an introduction to the application of Field Effect Transistors (FET) as frequency multipliers and harmonic oscillators. With an emphasis on nonlinear techniques, a minimal amount of mathematics, and the proper combination of theory and experimentation, this book helps microwave and millimeter-wave engineers comprehend the fundamental concepts and design rules of frequency multipliers and harmonic oscillators. Design of FET Frequency Multipliers and Harmonic Oscillators focuses on the techniques required to efficiently generate harmonics and emphasizes hardware circuits. It explores the design of narrow and large bandwidth doublers and triplers - both single-ended and balanced configuration. The book shows how to save design time by helping you utilize commercial linear and non-linear software packages, model the MESFET for multiplier operation, and match for wideband stable operation. This reference also explains the association between oscillator theory and frequency multiplier theory in designing harmonic generators and it contains useful information on the non-linear operation of power amplifiers. The important issues when employing MIC or MMIC technologies are discussed to help designers decide on the best approach for a particular circuit. The book contains more than 150 illustrative design examples and over 200 equations.
