Practical MMIC Design
Monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) are used in a host of electronics from cellular phones and global positioning systems to missile systems and radar. They are prized for their high performance and reliability, but they can be costly and highly difficult to produce. Proper design is the key to minimizing these problems. This practical resource is filled with real-world design techniques and rules of thumb that engineers can use on the job everyday to decrease costs and improve production quality. Emphasizing practice over theory, this handy reference is filled with photos of real MMIC designs that show how design techniques have been successfully implemented in the field. In addition to circuit design, the book covers modeling, simulation, and testing, as well as selection of the appropriate production technology. This invaluable volume offers professionals a unique look into the day-to-day practices of MMIC production and the economics associated with it.

Microwave Power Amplifier Design With Mmic Modules
Microwave Power Amplifier Design With Mmic
Solid state power amplifiers (SSPA) are a critical part of many microwave systems. Designing SSPAs with monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC) has boosted device performance to much higher levels focused on PA modules. This cutting-edge book offers engineers practical guidance in selecting the best power amplifier module for a particular application and interfacing the selected module with other power amplifier modules in the system. It also explains how to identify and mitigate peripheral issues concerning the PA modules, SSPAs, and microwave systems.

RFIC and MMIC Design and Technology (Materials, Circuits and Devices)
RFIC and MMIC Design and Technology (Materials, Circuits
RFIC and MMIC technology provides the core components for many microwave and millimetre-wave communications, radar and sensing systems. Recent years have seen exciting developments, such as circuits operating to over 200 GHz, millimetre-wave micromachined antenna arrays and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). At the same time, the rapid growth of wireless communications in the 1 to 6 GHz range has seen a dramatic shift towards advanced silicon technology. It is timely, therefore, to introduce this fully up-to-date second edition of a world-renowned standard text. With over 1000 references and 350 figures, the book gives an in-depth account of GaAs, InP, Si and SiGe technologies and describes all the key techniques for the design of amplifiers, oscillators, mixers, switches, variable attenuators, phase shifters, integrated antennas and complete monolithic transceivers. It is essential reading as both a tutorial guide for those new to RFIC and MMIC design and as a circuit design handbook for experienced engineers.

Introduction to MMIC Technology: Practical Design of MMIC Chip
Introduction to MMIC Technology: Practical Design of MMIC
The advent of high speed communications devices and technologies is the driving force of the information age. Integrated circuits (ICs), operating at radio and microwave frequencies, are at the heart of these applications. MMICs have made a great contribution to the speed and efficiency of wireless devices. The aim of this book is to focus on the practical design of MMICs. Hence, the general theory of RFICs and MMICs is presented along with practical design considerations including design simulations. Furthermore, their fabrication and measurement is also presented. I expect that this book will provide guidance to students at both the undergraduate and graduate level who have an interest in this field.

Stepped-Frequency Radar Sensors: Theory, Analysis and Design (SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering)
Stepped-Frequency Radar Sensors: Theory, Analysis and Design (SpringerBriefs
This book presents the theory, analysis and design of microwave stepped-frequency radar sensors. Stepped-frequency radar sensors are attractive for various sensing applications that require fine resolution. The book consists of five chapters. The first chapter describes the fundamentals of radar sensors including applications followed by a review of ultra-wideband pulsed, frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW), and stepped-frequency radar sensors. The second chapter discusses a general analysis of radar sensors including wave propagation in media and scattering on targets, as well as the radar equation. The third chapter addresses the analysis of stepped-frequency radar sensors including their principles and design parameters. Chapter 4 presents the development of two stepped-frequency radar sensors at microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies based on microwave integrated circuits (MICs), microwave monolithic integrated circuits (MMICs) and printed-circuit antennas, and discusses their signal processing. Chapter 5 provides the electrical characterization and test results of the developed microwave and millimeter-wave stepped-frequency radar sensors. Finally, a summary and conclusion is provided.
