Design better, more effective RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave filters - in substantially less time - with this practical new book. It shows you how to employ sophisticated, optimization-based approaches to filter design, and provides ready-made CAD filter design algorithms that help you easily develop a wide variety of filter configurations. Authored by a leading expert with more than 15 years experience in microwave analysis and filter design, this self-contained reference presents you with...Proven optimization oriented techniques for designing filter structures that have equal ripple insertion or return loss in the passband; An effective new filter design procedure based on equal ripple optimization; Details on designing lumped element, E-plane, ridged waveguide, and coplanar waveguide filters; A numerically efficient, easy-to-use method for calculating the insertion and return losses of a cascade of lossless symmetrical 2-ports. This book is a valuable hands on reference for any designer or engineer who needs to learn new methods for designing a wide range of RF, microwave, and mm-wave filter configurations. R&D specialists involved in CAD filter design can use the book as a guide for writing basic analysis, synthesis, design, and optimization programs for various filter structures, and more than 100 detailed illustrations, 261 equations, and dozens of real-world examples make it an excellent supplement for advanced university study.
