Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

I do not know of any single or general
sources of good literature on MMIC layout. however, I do know that many
of the best technqiues begin with analog layout principle, and then
move on to RF layout by straight forward approaches and 3d modeling.
I would recommend "The Art of Analog layout" by Alan Hastings.
http://www.amazon.com/Art-Analog-Layout ... F8&s=books
is a good place to start for understanding the nuances of layout with
regard to sensitive IC circuits.
From there, I would recommend
RF cmos design books like Tom Lee's "The design of CMOS Radio Frequency
I own both of these books and find then extremely
useful and well written.
CMOS RF and Analog
