RF Microelectronics, Second Editionteaches RF analysis and design systematically, one step at a time, taking you all the way from specification through practical solution. Behzad Razavi has thoroughly revised his classic text to incorporate the latest developments in RF architecture, circuits, and devices, and to cover all key topics in greater detail. This edition's stronger tutorial focus will make it even more valuable to students, and its more systematic coverage of the latest technologies will make it indispensable to practicing engineers. Updated, extended, and reorganized, it contains new chapters on: * Integrated Inductors and Varactors, including analysis and design of monolithic inductors; modeling techniques; inductor geometries and their properties; MOS varactors and their properties, and more * Phase-Locked Loops (PLLs) and their building blocks, emphasizing frequency synthesis applications * CMOS transceiver design, with Bluetooth, WLAN, and UWB examples * Millimeter-Wave Techniques, including CMOS circuit and transceiver design at 60 GHz and above; device and circuit modeling issues, and more New RF circuit analysis methods improve readers'understanding of complex effects; and frequent, detailed examples and problems help you gain hands-on mastery of every concept.

Author Biography

Behzad Razavi, Professor of Electrical Engineering at UCLA, leads the Communication Circuits Laboratory (CCL). Emphasizing the use of mainstream CMOS technologies, CCL's research seeks and exploits new devices, circuits, and architectures to push the performance envelope. Razavi holds a BSEE from Sharif University of Technology and MSEE and PhDEE degrees from Stanford. He was with ATT Bell Laboratories and HP Labs until 1996. An IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and IEEE Fellow, his books include Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits, Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communications, and Fundamentals of Microelectronics.
