EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – June 30, 2015 - NI (formerly AWR Corporation) announces
that a new 2015 edition of the eBook,
RF Electronics: Design and Simulation, is now available free of charge to students, graduates, professors
and industry professionals through its
Professors in Partnership web portal.
The Professors in Partnership program is designed to provide engineering students, faculty and graduates with
access to ongoing microwave and RF educational content that enhances and promotes the use of NI AWR software solutions
through e-books, textbooks, and videos.
Developed by adjunct associate professor C.
J. (Keith) Kikkert of James Cook University (Australia) School of Engineering and Physical Sciences,
the book describes the use of Microwave Office and AXIEM software to design RF electronic devices for applications
such as amplifiers, radar, mobile phones, Bluetooth and WLAN. This new edition is fully compatible with
NI AWR Design Environment™ 64-bit software releases.
The chapters of this book have been improved for greater clarity, benefitting readers by increasing their understanding
of design techniques. Several sections have been rewritten to clarify finer points of the design techniques under
discussion and figures showing plots and circuits from software screen captures have been redone using higher
resolution images. Additionally, substantial material has been added in the chapter on oscillators to show how
oscillator phase noise can be improved by careful resonator design.
