Copyright: 2018
Pages: 280
ISBN: 9781630815271

eBook £124.00

This comprehensive new resource guides professionals in the latest methods used when designing active integrated antennas (AIA) for wireless communication devices for various standards. This book provides complete design procedures for the various elements of such active integrated antennas such as the matching network, the amplifier/active element as well as the antenna. This book offers insight into how active integration and co-design between the active components (amplifier, oscillator, mixer, diodes) and the antenna can provide better power transfer, higher gains, increased efficiencies, switched beam patterns and smaller design footprints. It introduces the co-design approach of active integrated antennas and its superior performance over conventional methods.


Complete design examples are given of active integrated antenna systems for narrow and wideband applications as well as for multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems. Readers find the latest design methods for narrow and broadband RF matching networks. This book provides a complete listing of performance metrics for active integrated antennas. The book serves as a complete reference and design guide in the area of AIA.

Introduction; Impedance Matching Methods; Amplifier Design; Antenna Fundamentals; Active Integrated Antennas; A Co-Design Approach for Designing AIA.

Review: Midwest Book Review - September 1, 2018

An excellent new references is a recommended pick for college-level collections strong in electrical engineering and antenna design, offering engineers solid discussions of theory, applications, and different systems and their management. Mohammad S. Sharawi and Oualid Hammi's Design and Applications of Active Integrated Antennas offers professionals the latest methods in designing active integrated antennas for wireless devices, considering design protocol, interfaces between active components, increasing efficiency, and working between the active and passive parts of AIA. Design examples for such systems cover both narrowband and wideband applications and incorporate the latest design methods and applications. Both are solid references college-level electrical engineers will find essential.
