One of the main issues in mi- crowave and wireless system design is to ensure high performance with low cost techniques.
The six-port technique allows for this
in critical network design areas. This
practical resource offers a thorough
overview of the six-port technique,
from basic principles of radio frequency measurement-based techniques and multiport design, to coverage of key applications, such as vector
network analyzers, software-defined
radio and radar.
The first couple of chapters introduce microwave network theory, modeling, network analyzers and the fundamentals of the six-port technique.

and Abbas Mohammadi
Design considerations and calibration
techniques are then addressed, including the various types of six-port
designs and calibration standards and
techniques. Six-port network analyzers are covered as are source-pull and
load-pull measurements using the
six-port technique. The last couple of
chapters cover six-port wireless applications, such as receivers, ultra-wideband, software radio and millimeter-wave radios, along with microwave
applications such as reflectometer,
wave-correlator, direction finders,
radar, antenna measurement, material characterization and optical measurement. Each chapter has a list of
individual references, which is useful
for further research or learning about
each area covered.
This book covers a specific focused
area of microwave theory and application and is very good for readers who
want to learn more about the six-port
technique. However, it would not be

appropriate for generalists looking
to further their knowledge in microwaves unless they are knowledgeable
in this area. This book is a practical resource covering the six-port technique
and key related applications. To our
knowledge, The Six-port Technique
with Microwave and Wireless Applications is the first book dedicated to
six-port applications and principles,
and serves as a current, one-stop
guide offering cost-effective solutions
for challenging projects in the field.
