RF Microelectronics begins with a thorough introduction to the fundamental concepts of RF design, including nonlinearity, interference and noise. It reviews modulation and detection theory; multiple access techniques, and current wireless standards -- including CDMA, TDMA, AMPS and GSM. It presents case studies of transceiver architectures designed by several leading manufacturers. Finally, it offers detailed explanations of low-noise amplifiers, mixers and oscillators; frequency synthesizers and power amplifiers. The book is for the electrical engineers working in the communications fields, especially those involved with wireless technology. Also for graduate students.
