The importance of high frequency electronics has never been higher than it is today. A knowledge of theory, practice and design techniques is an essential part of the formation of an electronics engineer. Ed da Silva's 'High Frequency and Microwave Engineering' provides a thorough and approachable introduction to the subject and the software that is included enables the reader to develop a deep understanding of the material being studied. A valuable text for students of electronics and communications engineering. Dr Alistair Duffy, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK Any reader--theorists in the subject area or technicians using the material--will do well with this book. The accompanying CD-ROM is highly appropriate and understandably the best such resource of its kind in the field. A very impressive work--aesthetically pleasing to read, clearly written, comprehensive, generous in detailed illustrations, and without typographical error. -Choice Da Silva offers an impressive work; his experience as an instructor in the subject is obvious. His writing style is clear, and the book's type style, page design, and illustrations are well chosen. -Choice
