About Of The Book :

The book "Tunable RF Components and Circuits: Applications in Mobile Handsets" by Jeffrey L. Hilbert focuses on the topic of tunable RF (Radio Frequency) components and circuits, and their application in mobile handsets. The book provides an in-depth analysis of tunable RF components and circuits, including their design, implementation, and testing.
It covers various types of tunable RF components, such as varactors, MEMS (Micro-Electromechanical Systems) devices, and tunable filters, and their applications in mobile handsets. The book also discusses the trade-offs involved in choosing a specific type of tunable RF component for a specific application and provides insights into the challenges and limitations of tunable RF components and circuits.
Overall, the book provides valuable information for those who are interested in RF engineering, particularly in the area of tunable RF components and circuits and their application in mobile handsets.
The Book discusses the significance of tunable RF (Radio Frequency) in the rapidly growing world of mobile communications. With the increasing number of mobile users and data traffic, reliable wireless connectivity has become increasingly important. However, advancements in the RF front-end of mobile handsets have lagged behind other parts of the handset. The majority of mobile users regularly experience problems with battery life, dropped calls, and data speed, which are all heavily influenced by the performance of the RF front-end. This is due in part to the limitations of traditional complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technologies and design techniques in supporting the levels of performance required for RF components. With the increasing demand for data and improvements in network performance, the traditional RF front-end has become a bottleneck in achieving the industrial design and performance attributes demanded by customers.
The book is written by leading practitioners in the field, and between us, we comprise a majority of today’s commercial market share for tunable devices in mobile handset applications. The goal of the book is to provide a technical introduction to the field and to document the foundational work that has been done to date. Chapter 1 serves as an introduction and provides an overview of the tunable RF market along with a glimpse into the future. Chapters 2 and 3, contributed by Qorvo (Greensboro, North Carolina), ON Semiconductor (Nashua, New Hampshire) and BlackBerry (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada), focus on RFSOI technology and BST technology, respectively, along with an introduction to the applications of these technologies to tunable functions. Chapters 4 and 5, contributed by Skycross (Viera, Florida) and Ethertronics (San Diego, California), discuss the applications of tuning to mobile handset antenna structures and systems. Beginning with Chapter 6, the next three chapters (contributed by Cavendish Kinetics [San Jose, California], Peregrine Semiconductor [San Diego, California], and ON Semiconductor [Nashua, New Hampshire]) dive into antenna tuning applications utilizing RF-MEMS, SOI, and BST technologies, respectively. Chapter 9 concludes the detailed discussion of antenna tuning by offering a perspective on the topic from a handset OEM, Huawei (San Diego, California). In Chapter 10, Nujira (Cambridge, United Kingdom) provides an in-depth discussion of power amplifier envelope tracking, a rapidly emerging and important technique for improving efficiency. In Chapter 11, DelfMEMS (Villenuve D’Ascq, France) discusses using RF-MEMS switches for a next-generation implementation of a switchable RF front end. A case study of tunable radio architectures by Interdigital (Melville, New York) is presented in Chapter 12, while Chapter 13 provides AT&T’s (Atlanta, Georgia) network operator perspective on the evolution of the handset front end. The book concludes with a chapter from LitePoint (Sunnyvale, California) on production testing of wireless devices in the face of the continuing evolution of handset architectures and the increasing drive toward shifting such testing from a conducted to a radiated (over-the-air) performance basis.
