Offering a single volume reference for high frequency semiconductor devices, this handbook covers basic material characteristics, system level concerns and constraints, simulation and modeling of devices, and packaging. Individual chapters detail the properties and characteristics of each semiconductor device type, including: Varactors, Schottky diodes, transit-time devices, BJTs, HBTs, MOSFETs, MESFETs, and HEMTs. Written by leading researchers in the field, the RF and Microwave Semiconductor Device Handbook provides an excellent starting point for programs involving development, technology comparison, or acquisition of RF and wireless semiconductor devices.


"Overall this is an excellent book and a useful complement to older standard texts. Those readers searching for a book on modern RF semiconductor devices, modeling, and thermal analysis will be very happy."

-Alfy Riddle

"A team of 20 authors drawn from industry and academia, under the leadership of Golio of Motorola, has composed this 17-chapter, 310-page handbook…Layout, typography, and particularly the diagrams are exceptionally good. For practicing engineers in industry, government, and academia."

-G. Weiss, emeritus, Polytechnic University
