Radio Frequency Circuit Design, 2nd Edition (0470575077) cover image
This book focuses on components such as filters, transformers, amplifiers, mixers, and oscillators. Even the phase lock loop chapter (the last in the book) is oriented toward practical circuit design, in contrast to the more systems orientation of most communication texts.
