This authoritative resource provides you with comprehensive and detailed coverage of the wave approach to microwave network characterization, analysis, and design using scattering parameters. For the first time in any book, all aspects and approaches to wave variables and the scattering matrix are explored. The book compares and contrasts voltage waves, travelling waves, pseudo waves, and power waves, and explains the differences between real scattering parameters, pseudo scattering parameters, and power scattering parameters. You find important discussions on standard scattering matrices and wave quantities, mixed mode wave variables, and noise wave variables with noise wave correlation matrices. Moreover, the book presents clear methods for standard single ended multiport network design and noise analysis. This in-depth reference is packed with over 1,100 equations and numerous illustrations.
This textbook presents a unified treatment of theory, analysis and design of microwave devices and circuits. It is designed to address the needs of undergraduate students of electronics and communi-cation engineering for a course in microwave engineering as well as those of the students pursuing M.Sc. courses in electronics science. The main objective is to provide students with a thorough under-standing of microwave devices and circuits, and to acquaint them with some of the methods used in circuit analysis and design. Several types of planar transmission lines such as stripline, microstrip, slot line and a few other structures have been explained. The important concepts of scattering matrix and Smith chart related to design problems have been discussed in detail. The performance and geometry of microwave transistors-both bipolar and field effect-have been analysed. Microwave passive components such as couplers, power dividers, attenuators, phase shifters and circulators have been comprehensively dealt with. Finally, the analysis and design aspects of microwave transistor amplifiers and oscillators are presented using the scattering parameters technique. Numerous solved problems and chapter-end questions are included for practice and reinforcement of the concepts.
This comprehensive new book and software package introduces an alternative to standard microwave CAD: the wave-variable approach to computer-aided analysis, modeling and design of linear and nonlinear microwave networks. Featuring the latest data available, it allows you to solve troublesome design problems with the frequency-domain or the time-domain wave-based analysis method. Features more than 150 illustrations and 470 equations.
Based on the popular Artech House title Microwave Network Design Using the Scattering Matrix, this authoritative resource provides comprehensive coverage of the wave approach to microwave network characterization, analysis, and design using scattering parameters. New topics include signal and noise analysis of differential microwave networks based on mixed mode wave variables, generalized mixed mode scattering, and generalized mixed mode noise wave scattering matrix. This one of a kind resource presents all aspects and topics related to the scattering matrix which have been developed and applied in microwave theory and practice. The book is an excellent source of theoretical information on the wave variables and scattering matrix and their application to microwave network characterization, modeling, analysis and design. This book demonstrates the approach of noise and signal analysis and how it is applicable to two port networks and their cascades, multi-ports and multi-element multiport networks with standard single-ended ports with differential ports and simultaneously with single-ended and differential ports. It is suitable for beginners, and students as well as experienced engineers and researchers working in the field of microwaves.
A Comprehensive and Up-to-Date Treatment of RF and Microwave Transistor Amplifiers This book provides state-of-the-art coverage of RF and microwave transistor amplifiers, including low-noise, narrowband, broadband, linear, high-power, high-efficiency, and high-voltage.

Modelling and computations in electromagnetics is a quite fast-growing research area. The recent interest in this field is caused by the increased demand for designing complex microwave components, modeling electromagnetic materials, and rapid increase in computational power for calculation of complex electromagnetic problems. The first part of this book is devoted to the advances in the analysis techniques such as method of moments, finite-difference time- domain method, boundary perturbation theory, Fourier analysis, mode-matching method, and analysis based on circuit theory. These techniques are considered with regard to several challenging technological applications such as those related to electrically large devices, scattering in layered structures, photonic crystals, and artificial materials. The second part of the book deals with waveguides, transmission lines and transitions. This includes microstrip lines (MSL), slot waveguides, substrate integrated waveguides (SIW), vertical transmission lines in multilayer media as well as MSL to SIW and MSL to slot line transitions.
