Microwave & RF Design: A Systems Approach, 2nd Edition is a comprehensive treatment of the subject for advanced undergrad and graduate students (as well as professionals), focusing on the systems and emphasizing design. Components are covered in depth, but always with the idea of how they fit into modern radio, radar, and sensor systems. Advanced components and design techniques are presented along with a thoroughly modern treatment of traditional microwave theory and techniques.

The second edition has been updated and considerably expanded with current wireless systems and sections on 4G and the technologies behind 5G cellular communications. A new chapter on RF modules has been introduced, as well as chapters on Mixer and Source Modules, Parallel Coupled Line Filters, Wideband Amplifiers, Power Amplifiers, and Oscillators. 

Themes covered include:
1. How system level decisions affect component and subsystem design.
2. How the capabilities of technologies, components, and subsystems impact system design.
