large signal theory of active and non-linear wave interactions would also be nice for the students reading this book as a text. This book lacks explanation of the basic concepts for all the circuit theorems. It simply stated the theorems and demonstrated them with examples for the application. There is no discussion on superposition theorem and no index in… (More)
Dordrecht To Viviane Foreword The progress in the semiconductor industry has brought us advanced electronic systems available for large groups of people. By putting more and more func-tionality on an integrated circuit (IC) these systems could become cheap in mass production. This is the reason why scientists and engineers put constant effort in integrating… (More)

— Progress with silicon and silicon germanium based BiCMOS technologies over the past few years has been very impressive. Enabling the implementation of traditional microwave applications in silicon.
— We identify limitations of the models for phase noise in frequency dividers by Egan and by Phillips and present a new model applicable to both high frequency and low power frequency divider design. Further, we design both synchronous and asynchronous frequency divider test chips that allow us to observe experimentally the effects of noise accumulation,… (More)
