About this book

This book provides a detailed review of power amplifiers, including classes and topologies rarely covered in books, and supplies sufficient information to allow the reader to design an entire amplifier system, and not just the power amplification stage. A central aim is to furnish readers with ideas on how to simplify the design process for a preferred power amplifier stage by introducing software-based routines in a programming language of their choice. The book is in two parts, the first focusing on power amplifier theory and the second on EDA concepts. Readers will gain enough knowledge of RF and microwave transmission theory, principles of active and passive device design and manufacturing, and power amplifier design concepts to allow them to quickly create their own programs, which will help to accelerate the transceiver design process. All circuit designers facing the challenge of designing an RF or microwave power amplifier for frequencies from 2 to 18 GHz will find this book to be a valuable asset.

About the authors

Mladen Božanić, SMIEE, obtained his B. Eng. (with distinction), B. Eng. (Hons) (with distinction) and Ph.D. degrees in Electronic Engineering from the University of Pretoria (UP) in 2006, 2008 and 2011 respectively. In 2008, he joined Azoteq, a fabless IC design company originating in South Africa with where he has been responsible for the silicon-level design, simulation characterization design for testability (DFT) of various analog, RF, digital and mixed-mode circuits. While actively working in the industry, he also participates in research activities, currently with the University of Johannesburg (UJ) where he is serving as a Senior Research Fellow. Since 2011, Dr. Božanić has been fulfilling a role of a Specialist Editor of South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE). He is a recipient of SAMES Award and CEFIM Fellowship Award, and an author or co-author of over 10 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles, one book chapter and one book.

 

Saurabh Sinha, SMIEEE, FSAIEE, FSAAE, obtained his B.Eng., M.Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in Electronic Engineering from the University of Pretoria (UP), South Africa.
