The field of microwave engineering has undergone a radical transformation in recent years, as commercial wireless endeavors overtook defense and government work. The modern microwave and RF engineer must be knowledgeable about customer expectations, market trends, manufacturing technologies, and factory models to a degree that is unprecedented. Unfortunately, most of the available literature does not reflect this fact, but remains focused on high-performance, low-volume applications.Microwave and RF Product Applications helps resolve that deficiency. Editor Mike Golio culled its chapters from his bestselling RF and Microwave Handbook, incorporated critical updates contributed by the original authors, and organized the chapters into a practical, tightly focused reference. A complete table of contents at the front of the text makes finding specific answers quick and easy, and detailed lists of references in each chapter provide convenient access to the relevant expert literature. For engineers in industry, government, or academia, Microwave and RF Product Applications provides insight and information that may be outside their area of expertise. For managers, marketers, and technical support personnel, it builds a better understanding of the fields that drive and are affected by their decisions.
