Description

Expert contributors drawn from the ranks of academia and industry have authored chapters in such areas as third-generation wireless, wireless sensor networks, RF power amplifiers, spread spectrum modulation, signal propagation, antennas, and other key subjects that engineers working in RF and wireless need to be familiar with.

This is far more than just a tutorial or reference guide—it is a "guided tour" through the world of cutting-edge RF and wireless design, combining theory, applications, and philosophies behind the RF/wireless design process. The multiple and sometimes overlapping chapters reiterate and emphasize the fundamentals in the context of different types of wireless applications.

Here are just a few benefits that readers will gain from reading this book:

*A refresher and update of wireless principles and techniques.

*Information about the latest (and forthcoming) RF and wireless circuits, products and systems.

*Guidelines, approaches, and techniques to RF/wireless design.

*Examples of typical applications with an emphasis on real-world situations including existing and forthcoming new components and integrated circuits.

*Coverage of new and emerging wireless topics heretofore not widely covered in print (e.g. UWB, RFID, IR, etc.)

Key Features

  • A comprehensive survey of current RF and wireless engineering practice
  • Heavy emphasis on practical applications and design guidelines
  • Multiple contributors assure a wide range of perspectives and avoids individual bias

Readership

RF and wireless engineers, communications engineers, and EEs whose primary experience has been outside RF and wireless but now find themselves working on a project involving RF/wireless
