Up-to-date coverage of the analysis and applications of coplanar waveguides to microwave circuits and antennas
The unique feature of coplanar waveguides, as opposed to more conventional waveguides, is their uniplanar construction, in which all of the conductors are aligned on the same side of the substrate. This feature simplifies manufacturing and allows faster and less expensive characterization using on-wafer techniques.
Coplanar Waveguide Circuits, Components, and Systems is an engineer's complete resource, collecting all of the available data on the subject. Rainee Simons thoroughly discusses propagation parameters for conventional coplanar waveguides and includes valuable details such as the derivation of the fundamental equations, physical explanations, and numerical examples.
Coverage also includes:
Discontinuities and circuit elements
Transitions to other transmission media
Directional couplers, hybrids, and magic T
Microelectromechanical systems based switches and phase shifters
Tunable devices using ferroelectric materials
Photonic bandgap structures
Printed circuit antennas

Control Engineering: A Guide for Beginners
Automatic control is becoming more and more important in this age of automation. In manufacturing processes it ensures that certain parameters, such as temperature, pressure, speed cc voltage, take up specific constant values recognized as the optimum. or are maintained in a particular relationship to other variables. In other words, the duty...
Software Architecture in Practice, Second Edition
This award-winning book, substantially updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, introduces the concepts and best practices of software architecture-how a software system is structured and how that system's elements are meant to interact. Distinct from the details of implementation, algorithm, and data...
Bayesian Essentials with R (Springer Texts in Statistics)
This Bayesian modeling book provides a self-contained entry to computational Bayesian statistics. Focusing on the most standard statistical models and backed up by real datasets and an all-inclusive R (CRAN) package called bayess, the book provides an operational methodology for conducting Bayesian inference, rather than focusing on its...
