Reintroducing the largely forgotten parametric microwave circuit design technique to the RFIC design community, this book describes how reactive varactor-based amplifiers, mixers, and frequency converters can be design in modern integrated circuit topologies. The text addresses the issue of integrated reactive RFIC design in a logical manner, presenting key technological trade-offs, the advantages and disadvantages of modern devices in potential parametric designs, and layout tips for optimal performance. After an introduction to parametric circuits, their basic operation, and historical development, the author outlines how varactors operate in modern silicon-based processes.
