If you have ever wondered how your transceiver actually works, then his book provides a real insight into exactly that. It lays out in an easy-to-understand way the techniques that are commonly used in the design of modern RF communications equipment.
Introduction to RF Circuit Design for Communication Systems is not intended to be a formal textbook with rigorous explanations, derivations, and difficult mathematics. What it is though, is a book for a reader has a general understanding of basic electronic concepts and is looking to understand more of how circuits work, with just enough detail so that designs can be analysed in a basic manner. Where appropriate, approximations and 'rules of thumb' will be disclosed that can often simplify the design process. The book includes several design examples. Although the emphasis is on equipment or circuits that are part of communication systems, you will find information is also provided on a variety of general electronic design topics. Working through from 'plug to antenna' this book is a mine of revealing information that you may never thought about until reading it.
Introduction to RF Circuit Design for Communication Systems is a great read that starts at the level of reader familiar with Ohms Law and reactance. The information included is invaluable to anyone wanting more or a simply great reference book.
