PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION

The field of radio frequency (RF) circuit design is currently enjoying a renaissance, driven in particular by the recent, and largely unanticipated, explosive growth in wireless telecommunications. Because this resurgence of interest in RF caught industry and academia by surprise, there has been a mad scramble to educate a new generation of RF engineers. However, in trying to synthesize the two traditions of “conventional” RF and lower-frequency IC design, one encounters a problem: “Traditional” RF engineers and analog IC designers often find communication with each other difficult because of their diverse backgrounds and the differences in the media in which they realize their circuits. Radio-frequency IC design, ...
