Building on the success of the previous two editions Foundations of Interconnect and Microstrip Design offers extensive new, updated and revised material based upon the latest research. In addition to the comprehensive information on designing microstrip circuits there is an entirely new chapter on coplanar waveguide (CPW) design and substantial new material on designing gigahertz-rate digital interconnects both on and off chip. Strongly design-oriented, this third edition provides the reader with a fundamental understanding of this fast expanding field making it a definitive source for professional engineers and researchers and an indispensable reference for senior students in electronic engineering.
Presents a unified treatment of high speed digital interconnect and microwave transmission line design Provides up-to-date interconnect design information for gigshertz digital ICs, RFICs, MICs and MMICs Features design information on dielectric resonators for filters and oscillators Explains design formulas and procedures for numerous types of circuits Discusses techniques suitable for rapid CAE implementation Includes exhaustive appendices covering key concepts, transmission line theory, Q-factor analysis, scattering parameter theory, and interconnect modelling in circuit simulators
