About This Book:
Grounding is a widespread and serious problem in microwave and RF engineering and, up until now, there hasn’t been a practical, authoritative resource dedicated to the topic. This first-of-its-kind volume offers professionals a comprehensive understanding of the proper grounding techniques to use when working on varied microwave circuit and antenna design projects. Practitioners learn what problems can occur when grounding design is inadequate, and how to avoid them. The book covers a wide range of critical topics, from the fundamentals of low frequency circuit theory and the differences between DC and RF short circuits…to grounding in active microwave component design and grounding issues related to antennas.
