About the Authors
  • From typical metrology parameters for common wireless and microwave components to the implementation of measurement benches, this introduction to metrology contains all the key information on the subject. Using it, readers will be able to: • Interpret and measure most of the parameters described in a microwave component's datasheet • Understand the practical limitations and theoretical principles of instrument operation • Combine several instruments into measurement benches for measuring microwave and wireless quantities. Several practical examples are included, demonstrating how to measure intermodulation distortion, error vector magnitude, S-parameters and large signal waveforms. Each chapter then ends with a set of exercises, allowing readers to test their understanding of the material covered and making the book equally suited for course use and for self-study.

    • Describes instrumentation operation from a user point of view, supplemented by practical examples and end-of-chapter exercises
    • Includes information on both traditional analog and new digital measurement procedures for new emerging wireless technologies
    • Gives the main measurement parameters for common wireless devices and sub-systems to help readers interpret device datasheets

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Microwave and Wireless Measurement Techniques is not only useful for students, technicians and engineers, but also for personnel writing specifications, and those having cognizance over sell-off and acceptance of hardware and systems. These personnel might include program managers, quality assurance/control, system integrators, government inspectors and contract administrators.' Tom Perkins, High Frequency Electronics
