This practical resource offers engineers an in-depth, up-to-date understanding of the use of microwave magnetic materials for cutting-edge wireless applications. The book discusses device applications used in wireless infrastructure base stations, point-to-point radio links, and a range of more specialized microwave systems. Professionals find detailed discussions on the attributes of each family of magnetic materials with respect to specific wireless applications. Moreover, the book addresses two of the hottest topics in the field today - insertion loss and intermodulation. This comprehensive reference also covers ancillary materials that are used with microwave magnetic materials, such as dielectrics, absorbers, and conductors.
David Cruickshank is the director of engineering emeritus at TransTech Inc. in Adamstown, Maryland. The author of several conference proceedings in the microwave field, he earned his degree in physical chemistry from the University of Edinburgh.
