Up-to-date RF design tools like RF circuit simulation, EM simulation and computerized smith charts, are used in various examples to demonstrate how these methods can be applied effectively in RF engineering practice.Design rules and working examples illustrate the theoretical parts. The examples are close to real world problems, so the reader can directly transfer the methods within the context of their own work. At the end of each chapter a list of problems is given in order to deepen the readers understanding of the chapter material and practice the new competences. Solutions are available on the authors website.Key Features: Presents a wide range of RF topics with emphasis on physical aspects e.g. EM and voltage waves, transmission lines, passive circuits, antennasUses various examples of modern RF tools that show how the methods can be applied productively in RF engineering practiceIncorporates various design examples using circuit and electromagnetic (EM) simulation softwareDiscusses the propagation of waves: their representation, their effects, and their utilization in passive circuits and antenna structuresProvides a list of problems at the end of each chapterIncludes an accompanying website containing solutions to the problems (http: //www.fh-dortmund.de/gustrau_rf_textboo... will be an invaluable textbook for bachelor and masters students on electrical engineering courses (microwave engineering, basic circuit theory and electromagnetic fields, wireless communications). Early-stage RF practitioners, engineers (e.g. application engineer) working in this area will also find this book of interest.
