Focuses on the basic operating principles and the techniques used to incorporate the devices into circuit applications. Part one reviews fundamental principles in transmission lines and circuits as well as semiconductor physics. Two-terminal solid-state devices, circuits and applications are covered in the second section. Part three discusses three-terminal solid-state devices, circuits and applications. Introduces noise figures and system parameters for receiver design. Includes numerous examples and problems.Chang, Kai is the author of 'Microwave Solid-State Circuits and Applications', published 1994 under ISBN 9780471540441 and ISBN 0471540447.
