Free eBook “RF Electronics: Design and Simulation” available

Information and understanding is key to the work of any electronics development engineer. That is why we were very interested to see this free offer from AWR / National Instruments. Although registration is required, it looks like this provides a considerable amount of information.

The free ebook is an updated edition of the popular Professor Kikkert’s eBook RF Electronics: Design and Simulation featuring NI AWR Design Environment software is available for free download on the ni.com/awr site. Written by Dr. C. J. Keith Kikkert, adjunct associate professor at the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at James Cook University (JCU), the eBook provides a basic understanding of computer-aided RF circuit simulation and key RF component design theories and techniques for the working engineer.

Exploring the design methodology behind common radio blocks such as amplifiers, filter, oscillators and passive components, this third edition now includes a new chapter on RF operational amplifiers (OpAmps) with bandwidths greater than one gigahertz as they offer exciting new capabilities in phased-lock loops (PLLs) and other high-speed applications. The eBook relies upon Microwave Office circuit design software and AXIEM planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator to illustrate design concepts. Also included is new material on reflectionless filters and three-dimensional printing of printed circuit boards (PCBs), as well as numerous other updates.

To download (registration required) the third edition of the eBook RF Electronics: Design and Simulation, visit awrcorp.com/support-resources/university-support/professors-partnership/professor-keith-kikkert.

Stray field immunity is essential to magnetic sensing in modern automotive applications
A combination of environmental awareness and consumer demand is driving the automotive industry to produce ever-more efficient vehicles. Whether this is the highly-publicized Electric Vehicles (EV) / Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) or simply updates to the existing internal combustion engine (ICE) based vehicles, modern vehicles are bristling with technology – and this is only set to grow in the future.
