Key Features

*Author's extensive experience as a practicing antenna design engineer gives book a strong “hands-on” emphasis
*Covers antenna design techniques from very low frequency (below 300 kHz) to microwave (above 1 GHz) ranges
*Special attention is given to antenna design for mobile/portable applications such as cell phones, WiFi, etc


As wireless devices and systems get both smaller and more ubiquitous, the demand for effective but small antennas is rapidly increasing. This book will describe the theory behind effective small antenna design and give design techniques and examples for small antennas for different operating frequencies. Design techniques are given for the entire radio spectrum, from a very hundred kilohertz to the gigahertz range.

Unlike other antenna books which are heavily mathematical and theoretical, Douglas Miron keeps mathematics to the absolute minimum required to explain design techniques. Ground planes, essential for operation of many antenna designs, are extensively discussed. The book will also include a CD-ROM with design software that will greatly simplify readers' daily design tasks.

Quotes and reviews

“The book is written in a conversational style, with many first-person descriptions, historical notes and explanations. The casual language gives way to more formal explanations where appropriate. The effect is that the reader can easily visualize him- or herself in a classroom lecture environment with a knowledgeable and personable professor.” - High Frequency Electronics, May 2006

"…the book is a good one that I recommend. It is heavy on the math, but none of it is overly exotic and all of it is easily dealt with. Even though I already have a dozen antenna books in my personal library, I like this one as it adds another dimension. The author has obviously had the experience to create this unique book." - Electronic Design, April 2006
