The Waveguide Handbook is an unabridged reprint of the book first published in 1951 by McGraw Hill as Volume 10 of the MIT Radiation Laboratory Series.
Although the primary aim of the book is to present the equivalent-circuit parameters for a large number of microwave structures, a brief but coherent account of the fundamental concepts necessary for their proper utilisation is included. The first three chapters summarise both the field and network theoretic considerations necessary for the derivation and utilisation of the basic transmission line-equivalent-circuit formalism. The mode concept and transmission-line formulation of the field equations are introduced in Chapter 1. This chapter contains an engineering treatment of the transmission-line theory necessary for the description of propagating and nonpropagating modes in the more important types of uniform and nonuniform waveguides. The field-structure, propagation, attenuation, etc., characteristics of the transmission-line modes so described are compiled in Chapter 2, with both quantitive and pictorial detail. The elements of microwave-network theory required for the analysis, representation, and measurement of the equivalent circuits for N-terminal microwave structures are outlined in Chapter 3; also contained in this chapter is a sketch of some of the field theoretic methods employed in the derivation of the equivalent-circuit parameters reported in Chapters 4 to 8. Although most of the above material is written for the impedance-minded microwave engineer, some of the sections should be of interest to the applied mathematician. The remaining chapters contain a compilation of the equivalent-circuit parameters for a variety of nondissipative N-terminal microwave structures. In Chapter 4 a number of two-terminal structures, such as beyondcutoff and radiative waveguide terminations, are treated. Obstacle and aperture discontinuities in waveguides, gratings in free space, etc., are among the four-terminal structures described in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 deals with six-terminal microwave structures and contains the equivalent-circuit parameters for a number of E-and H -plane T- and Y-junctions, bifurcations, etc. Several eight-terminal structures are treated in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 contains the circuit description of a number of typical composite microwave structures; dielectric-filled guides, thick apertures, etc.
This edition also contains a new preface by the editor and several pages of errata which he has collected over the past thirty-five years.
This book covers the progress made in the area of wide bandgap semiconductor (WBG) technologies, in particular SiC, with a strong emphasis on their applications torapidly progressing areas such as automotive, aerospace and the whole electrical energy sector. The book is unique in its blend of device functionality and capabilities, technology road maps, as well as addressing the important aspects of real-life applications of these emerging devices. The benefits offered by wide bandgap material devices is enormous, and in the era of more electrification of transport and reformation of the whole energy supply chain this is set to be one of the key defining technologies over the next few decades that will support the whole eco-structure of society in the 21st century, much as silicon has done over the last half of the 20th century.
Wideband Amplifier Design

In this book, the theory needed to understand wideband amplifier design using the simplest models possible will be developed. This theory will be used to develop algebraic equations that describe particular circuits used in high frequency design so that the reader develops a 'gut level' understanding of the process and circuit. SPICE and Genesys simulations will be performed to show the accuracy of the algebraic models. By looking at differences between the algebraic equations and the simulations, new algebraic models will be developed that include parameters originally left out of the model. By including these new elements, the algebraic equations provide surprising accuracy while maintaining simplicity and understanding of the circuit.
While the emphasis is on wide bandwidth (DC to several GHz) amplifiers with good transient response, the techniques presented are also quite useful to people doing classic analog design. For example, the same things that cause certain one-transistor amplifiers to oscillate at 5 GHz can also explain the behavior of an op-amp loaded into a capacitor. The term 'high frequency' is relative. As such, this book is of interest to anyone doing analog design. Both op-amp designers (Integrated Circuit) and op-amp users will find the material useful. Other applications include fast digitizers, analog to digital converters (A/D), and digital to analog converters (D/A), as well as the emerging area of Ultra Wideband (UWB) radio. Narrow bandwidth (classic Radio Frequency (RF) design) is either similar to, or a subset of the techniques presented in this book. As such, classic RF designers will also find the contents of this book useful.
This book presents a state of the art review of integrated circuits, systems and transceivers for wireless and mobile communications. Contributions from world-class researchers focus upon the most recent developments in key RF, IF and baseband components and subsystems and transceiver architecture in CMOS technology. Adopting a top-down approach from wireless communications systems, mobile terminals and transceivers, to constituent components, this book covers the whole range of baseband, IF and RF issues in a systematic way. Circuit and system techniques for design and implementation of reconfigurable low voltage and low power single-chip CMOS transceivers for both mobile cellular and wireless LAN applications are included.
