RF and Microwave Circuit Design: Updated and Revised with 100 Keysight (ADS) Workspaces

Ali A. Behagi 2017

Unlike many traditional textbooks on RF and microwave circuit design written mainly for the classroom, the revised RF and Microwave Circuit Design textbook adopts a practical, hands-on approach to quickly introduce students and engineers to this fascinating subject. The author makes extensive use of the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools to illustrate the principles of RF and microwave circuit design and solve close to 100 ADS design examples. The EDA features in the book include ADS Filter Design Guide, Impedance Matching Utility, Electromagnetic Simulation, Simulation Wizard, Smart Components, Transformation Assistant, Tuning, and Optimization. No other textbook uses this many EDA tools.

Almost all the subject matters in the book are accompanied by ADS design examples. University students and practicing engineers will find the book both as a potent learning tool and as a reference guide to quickly setup designs using the ADS software. Additionally, in designing complex impedance matching networks, the book develops and frequently uses the MATLAB Script capability that may not be familiar to some engineers and university students. The tectbook marries RF and microwave circuit design with practical examples using the Keysight ADS software.

ADS is one of today’s most widely used Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software used by the world’s leading companies to design ICs, RF Modules and boards in every smart phone, tablet, WiFi routers as well as Radar and satellite communication systems.

This book provides the readers a solid understanding of the RF and microwave concepts and components, Smith chart, S-parameters, transmission lines, impedance matching circuits, resonators, filters and amplifiers. More importantly, it details how to use the EDA tools in the analysis and design of RF and microwave circuits in a manner that is practiced in industry. This ensures that the skills learned in this book can be easily and immediately put into practice without any barriers.
