Editorial Reviews

This tutorial presents all the relevant information required for RF and microwave power amplifier design, including well-known and new theoretical approaches, practical design techniques, and suggestions for design approaches combining analytical calculations and computer- aided design. Grebennikov, the principal design engineer at M/A-COM, not only provides the latest strategies, he also introduces old approaches that are still viable in modern practice. The topics covered include two-port network parameters, nonlinear circuit design methods, impedance matching, and broadband power amplifiers. The text is illustrated with nearly 300 detailed diagrams and extensive references for every chapter.
