Richly illustrated and written in an easy-to-comprehend style, this highly accessible resource provides novice engineers and engineering students with a solid introduction to the use of electromagnetics (EM) simulation in RF design. Engineers learn how to use EM software to design microwave circuits and to conduct signal integrity analysis of high-speed digital circuits. This authoritative book describes exactly how microwave and high-speed digital circuits operate, offering practitioners clear troubleshooting guidance for their work with these circuits. Professionals and students also benefit from a thorough overview of the wide range of high-frequency circuits and related EM tools being utilized in the field today. DVD is included! This title contains Sonnet RF circuit analysis software, featuring example files that are described and illustrated in the book.
