Incorporating computer-aided design techniques, The Design of Impendance-Matching Networks will give you - practicing engineers and electrical engineering students - a full review of everything you need to design better and more efficient impedance-matching networks. A special feature of the book is the introduction of information on wideband microwave amplifiers. The Design of Impedance-Matching Networks gives you practical and conceptual information for the design of realizable circuits, thoroughly explaining a variety of complicated networks. The easy reading text is supplemented with examples and representative problems. Beginning with an analysis of radio-frequency and microwave circuits with single-frequency parameters, the text gives particular attention to the design of air-cored solenoid inductors with specified Q-factors and resonant frequencies. An in-depth series of diagrams illustrate the design of narrowband, lumped, loss-less impendance-matching networks, including simple procedures for calculating the insertion loss and bandwidth of any cascaded match network. Design of Impedeance-Matching Networks features: a detailed analysis of the characteristics and design of transformers including magnetically coupled transformers, practical transformers, wideband and narrowband transformers, singled-tuned and double-tuned transformers, and transmission line transformers for wideband radio-frequency applications; solutions for efficient designs of wideband impedance-matching networks between arbitrary load and source impedances to approximate any specified transducer power-gain versus frequency resonse; a review of the different types of microwave capacitors and inductors; techqniques for designing radio-frequency and microwave amplifiers, and the theory behind establishing desired impedance specifications; an in-depth discussion of the design of single-ended single-stage, multistage, reflection, power, and balanced amplifiers.
