Description

A one-stop reference to the
major techniques for analyzing
microwave planar transmission line structures

The last two decades have seen important progress in the development of methods for the analysis of microwave and millimeter-wave passive structures, which contributed greatly to microwave integrated circuit design while also stimulating the development of new planar transmission lines. This timely and authoritative work introduces microwave engineers to the most commonly used techniques for analyzing microwave planar transmission line structures.

Designed to be easily accessible to readers with only a fundamental background in electromagnetic theory, the book provides clear explanations of the theory and applications of Green's function, the conformal-mapping method, spectral domain methods, variational methods, and the mode-matching methods. Coverage for each method is self-contained and supplemented with problems and solutions as well as useful figures.

In addition to providing detailed formulations of the methods under discussion, this highly practical book also demonstrates how to apply the principles of electromagnetic theory to the analysis of microwave boundary value problems, customize methods for specific needs, and develop new techniques. Analysis Methods for RF, Microwave, and Millimeter-Wave Planar Transmission Line Structures is an excellent working resource for anyone involved in the design and engineering of RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave integrated circuits.
