Book description

Whether you are an RF transistor designer, an amplifier designer or a system designer, this is your one-stop guide to RF and microwave transistor power amplifiers. A team of expert authors brings you up to speed on every topic, including: devices (Si LDMOS and VDMOS, GaAs FETs, GaN HEMTs), circuit and amplifier design (discrete, hybrid and monolithic), CAD, thermal design, reliability, and system applications/requirements for RF and microwave transistor amplifiers. Covering state-of-the-art developments and emphasising practical communications applications, this is the complete professional reference on the subject.


‘[This] Handbook is a comprehensive reference for RF and microwave power amplifiers. It includes both theory and practice as well as a variety of different applications. Often overlooked supporting topics such as CAD, thermal design, and reliability are treated in depth. John Walker has put together an outstanding team of authors, each of whom is well qualified to address his topic. Finally, I like the way it is organized with separate chapters for three types of RF-power transistors (silicon, GaAs, and GaN/SiC) and separate chapters for amplifiers of different frequency types (HF/VHF/UHF, microwave, and IC).’

Fritz Raab - Green Mountain Radio Research Company

‘John [Walker] has successfully brought together, in one book, the current knowledge from world experts actively involved with the characterisation and modelling of devices together with those developing and designing RF and microwave power amplifiers … this book will serve as a useful reference source for engineers working in both the commercial and military market sectors.’

Steve Nightingale - Cobham Technical Services

'[This] book could be used as a college or university engineering course textbook, a reference for practising RF and microwave engineers, or even relatively light reading for those actively engaged in current power amplifiers R&D or applications … It is the kind of book that might be found more often on the desk than on the shelf.'
