This book differentiates itself by presenting microwave and RF technology from a circuit design viewpoint, rather than a set of electromagnetic problems. The emphasis is on gaining a practical understanding of often overlooked but vital physical processes. This resource provides microwave circuit engineers with analytical techniques for understanding and designing high-frequency circuits almost entirely from a circuit point of view. Electromagnetic concepts are not avoided, but they are employed only as necessary to support circuit-theoretical ones or to describe phenomena such as radiation and surface waves in microstrip.
