Description l Table of Contents l Author Bio l

This highly practical and convenient book is the most comprehensive resource on microwave and RF filter theory, design, analysis, and applications ever compiled. A perfect companion to the Artech House 2006 bestseller, Classic Works in RF Engineering, this new volume collects 50 classic, hard-to-find papers from the 1950s to 2007 on critical topics in the field-from aperture-coupled filters to zolotarev lowpass filters and everything in between. Moreover, this invaluable collection includes design procedures, formulas, examples, and performance data to help you tackle your challenging projects with speed and efficiency.

Including insightful introductions from leading authority and editor, Ralph Levy, each paper brings you definitive project-ready guidance including theoretical background, applications, selection criteria, design steps, calculations, examples, and input on filter components like capacitors, resistors, and inductors. The book includes over 100 diagrams and schematics that help clarify the material at every stage, along with a wealth of problem-solving tips from the top innovators in the field. Whether you need details on combline, resonator, waveguide, or bandstop filters, this one-of-a-kind volume saves you countless hours searching the literature.
