    This column returns to the topic of investment engineering. Previous columns on this topic have established the following foundation: a) a block diagram view of investment engineering; b) the lognormal model of price behavior; c) the efficient market approximation; d) the nonideal behavior of real markets. The remainder of the series will present two different approaches to market analysis. One st... View full abstract»

    The most common use for a coupler is a directional power monitor. Although a somewhat mundane application, it is a very useful one. The author had previously thought and that there may be important practical applications for these devices that lie outside of the normal laboratory measurement function. This analysis leads into another application, which is the use of a directional coupler as an asy... View full abstract»

    In this article, we show that the Doherty amplifier is capable of delivering the stringent requirements of the base station power amplifiers. We explain the operation principles, including both linearity and efficiency improvements, and the basic circuit configuration of the amplifier. Advanced design methods to operate across wide bandwidth and improve the linearity are also described. For verifi... View full abstract»

    The objective of this article is to provide explanations for some of the anomalous phenomena commonly observed in the measurement of PAs. It will also show how modern stability-analysis techniques, based on harmonic balance, can accurately predict the undesired behavior. The article introduces practical simulation tools, applicable on both in-house and commercial harmonic balance simulators. The i... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this article is to point out a conceptual link between an artistic creation by the well-known Dutch artist M.C. Escher (1898-1972), called Circle Limit IV (woodcut, 1960), and the most commonly used graphical aid in microwave engineering work, called the Smith chart (1939-1944), created by the U.S. engineer P.H. Smith (1905-1987) View full abstract»

    Coaxial connectors can be used either to probe the electrical properties of microwave circuits (e.g., microstrip, stripline) or as a permanent interface to the circuit. When used as a permanent interface, connectors can degrade circuit performance unless their electrical properties are characterized and accounted for during circuit design. Although it is more common to characterize microwave devic... View full abstract»
