A unified presentation of the analysis and design of microwave transistor amplifiers (and oscillators) ? using scattering parameters techniques. KEY FEATURES: Presents material on: transmission-lines concepts; power waves and generalized scattering parameters; measurements of scattering parameters; bipolar and field-effect transistors; power gain expressions; constant VSWR circles; gain, noise, and VSWR design trade offs; broadband amplifiers, high-power amplifiers; oscillator
It conveys information in a short time. The paperback is literally falling apart, and this happened with several students in my class. As a manufacturer of books, I would think the company would design for this not to happen, but the block of glue does a clumsy job of keeping things together when a student is trying to read what in the world is going on with these insane circles, charts, transmission lines and other things the author does a good job of explaining.
However, the convention used for the Smith charts in the the first couple chapters is hard to follow, in my opinion. Some examples have a tendency to skip steps leaving the newbie reader to madly scramble for the equations until he finds the right one that works.
