Presents wideband RF technologies and antennas in the microwave band and millimeter-wave band
This book provides an up-to-date introduction to the technologies, design, and test procedures of RF components and systems at microwave frequencies. The book begins with a review of the elementary electromagnetics and antenna topics needed for students and engineers with no basic background in electromagnetic and antenna theory. These introductory chapters will allow readers to study and understand the basic design principles and features of RF and communication systems for communications and medical applications. After this introduction, the author examines MIC, MMIC, MEMS, and LTCC technologies. The text will also present information on meta-materials, design of microwave and mm wave systems, along with a look at microwave and mm wave receivers, transmitters and antennas.
- Discusses printed antennas for wireless communication systems and wearable antennas for communications and medical applications
- Presents design considerations with both computed and measured results of RF communication modules and CAD tools
- Includes end-of-chapter problems and exercises
Wideband RF Technologies and Antennas in Microwave Frequencies is designed to help electrical engineers and undergraduate students to understand basic communication and RF systems definition, electromagnetic and antennas theory and fundamentals with minimum integral and differential equations.Albert Sabban, PhD, is a Senior Researcher and Lecturer at Ort Braude College Karmiel Israel. Dr. Sabban was RF and antenna specialist at communication and Biomedical Hi-tech Companies. He designed wearable compact antennas to medical systems. From 1976 to 2007, Dr. Albert Sabban worked as a senior R&D scientist and project leader in RAFAEL.
