Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Comprehensive, up-to-date, and applied coverage of modern microwave engineering

Complete with practical applications and clear design procedures, Pozar’s Third Edition of MICROWAVE ENGINEERING offers a comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of the field. Based on fundamental principles of electrical engineering, the text shows that microwave circuits and devices can be explained through the use of circuit theory, Maxwell’s equations, and related concepts.

Now updated and revised, this Third Edition features new material on active circuit design, nonlinear effects, and noise.

Highlight include:

  • New and revised coverage: The third Edition presents new materials on capacitively coupled resonator filters, RF MEMS, transistor power amplifiers, transistor oscillators, frequency multipliers, oscillator phase noise, and FET mixers, as well as substantially revised coverage of a number of topics.
  • Many examples covering both theory and design: Examples, including many that are new or revised for this edition, show how typical problems are solved, how typical designs are carried out, and how typical component designs perform.
  • A wide variety of problems: Problems, including many that are new or revised, also cover both theory and design. Answers to selected problems provide opportunities for self-assessment.
  • Discussion of both the how and the why of microwave engineering: The text begins with fundamental concepts, then builds on these to show how microwave components and circuits operate, and how they are designed.
  • Extra resource on the Web: The web site for this text includes a Laboratory Manual of experiments from the University of Massachusetts and related files for using Ansoft’s Serenade Microwave CAD package for several of the examples and problems in the book.

Microwave and RF Design of Wireless Systems

In the process of obtaining a Ph.D. the hard way (3 separate schools for BSME, MSEE, Ph.D.) as well as tackling a half dozen widely diverse technology areas in my professional life, I have read a LOT of text books. Pozar is the gold standard of reference texts. What is Microwave Engineering? Read Pozar. What does this thingy do? Read Pozar. What's the formula for converting from ABCD to admittance matrices? Read Pozar. I suppose by now it's getting a bit out of date. So much more is happening at the deep sub-wavelength chip level that 'Microwave Engineering' (IE, worrying about wavelength) is less important than it used to be. Still, there will always be interconnects, and even when wavelength isn't a factor, the analysis techniques presented are a powerful and rigorous way of thinking that many people seem to have trouble mastering. Until I read Pozar, I was one of them.

I needed a book for practical reference. This book is well organized and decently illustrates the concepts in a non-superfluous manner. This has all the basic material you would learn in a microwave course, but you would need additional references for more advanced topics.

As a working engineer with high power RF for nearly 20 years, I found David Pozar's book to be one of the best references to microwave engineering that is available. There are many professional books available which cover the same topics, but they lack a sufficient mathematical electricity & magnetism explanation in comparison. One of the things I found is that I had to refresh myself on the math, which is a good thing, in order to complete the problems at end of every chapter. I recently met a microwave communications engineer who had a class taught by David Pozar and he said it was difficult since Pozar is demanding, but enjoyed the class. Well, this attitude is reflected in this book by treating most topics very quantitatively.

I would highly recommend Microwave Engineering to all mobile communications, RF, radar systems and electronic warfare engineers. And of course to all graduate electrical engineering students.

With this book, I also recommend as a complement RF Design Guide: Systems, Circuits, and Equations

The only negative I can say is about cost, but there are several used sources available and for this type of reference the new cost can be justified if you work in this field.

Overall, I found Pozar's book to be a good handbook on pracical applications of microwave engineering. However, as one who has not been a design engineer in years, the long drawn out mathematical proofs of the theories behind the applications made for a sometimes tedious read. This would have been a great text for me right out of college, but in my current position I don't need to understand the theory to the depth that Pozar often goes into. The purists and hardcore design guys might say I've devolved into a mathematical whimp, but for my needs I like overviews.

This textbook is very mathematical and dense, and I do not recommend it for somebody who is new to the subject. This text is ideal for somebody who understands the basics of microwave design, and it will help make sense of technical papers on the topic.

A friend showed me a copy of this book and after reviewing several chapteres I order my own copy. With so many books available it is hard to find an author who's information and explanation is clear, correct and valuable when working with transmission lines and antennas. This book covers the theory then breaks it down from complicated math models into simplified models for practical use. There are plentiful examples to follow or make clear the ideas. It is an excellent book to further onces knowledge of printed circuit board design or for applications which require the detailed anaylsis.

Pozar is great at explaining concepts in an easy to understand manner. He only tells you what you need to know and leaves all the filler material out. This is a book you can simply read and understand. I found it to be a good addition to his book on RF systems. It also provides a few chapters on electro-magnetics, which I found useful for EM classes. His descriptions are easier to understand than those found in most EM books.

This book covers a large range of topics; from transmission lines, networks, oscillators, switches, and amps. Due to the range of topics, some details are lacking. For in depth explanations, it would be necessary to find a book dedicated to the specific topic of interest.

Overall, it's clear Pozar puts a lot of thought into the layout of his material. This is evident in how clear and understandable his books are.

The biggest gripe I have is that there are no answers at the back to check yourself, and sometimes the hw probs are nothing like the examples in the chapter, and sometimes they are very tricky and you may think you have it right when you don't. I've never understood the point of giving practice problems without a way for the student to check their work. Pozar doesn't explicitly explain every move he makes in solving the examples either, so expect to spend some time figuring that out. It's not a bad intro text, I would recommend getting it along with Guillermo Gonzalez's 'u-wv transistor amps anal.& design'. It was helpful to me to switch back and forth between the two- GG's book goes into more specific details, but when it gets too hairy, one can go back to Pozar and get the basics.
