About the Authors
  • This expanded and thoroughly revised edition of Thomas H. Lee's acclaimed guide to the design of gigahertz RF integrated circuits features a completely new chapter on the principles of wireless systems. The chapters on low-noise amplifiers, oscillators and phase noise have been significantly expanded as well. The chapter on architectures now contains several examples of complete chip designs that bring together all the various theoretical and practical elements involved in producing a prototype chip. First Edition Hb (1998): 0-521-63061-4 First Edition Pb (1998); 0-521-63922-0

    • Thoroughly revised and expanded new edition of a best-selling guide to the design of CMOS RF chips
    • Contains a new chapter on the fundamentals of wireless systems
    • Now contains several complete, stage-by-stage chip designs, including a GPS receiver and a wireless LAN transceiver

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Tom Lee has written a terrific book. Everyone that visits my office wants to borrow it, and I tell them to go buy their own."
    David Rutledge, California Institute of Technology

    "[A] useful reference both for students in advanced courses and for engineers in the field."
    Dejan S. Vujic, Communications Engineer

    "Tom Lee's love of, and deep involvement in, radio-frequency integrated circuits is immediately obvious upon glancing through this excellent and original book. Some of his viewpoints are controversial; but this, in fact, makes this stimulating, hard-to-put-down book all the more interesting."
    Yannis Tsividis, Columbia University

    “Thomas Lee uses [an] engaging history lesson as a starting point for this 797-page guide to the design of gigahertz RF ICs. In the second edition, Lee has tweaked all of the first-edition material and added additional information…The author's conversational writing style interspersed with lighthearted humor is enjoyable to read.”
    Electronic Design

    "...The first edition of this book, published in 1998, was a pioneering textbook on the field of RF CMOS design. This second edition is a very interesting and upgraded version that includes new material and revised topics...This second edition, which is upgraded and improved, is really useful, both in the industry and academia, for the new generation of RF engineers...and is a valuable reference for practicing engineers..."
    IEEE Circuits and Devices Magazine
