Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first completely unified introduction to a rapidly expanding hybrid technology . . .

Lasers, fiber optics, and high-speed optical systems share many concepts with microwave devices. Furthermore, semiconductor-based optoelectronics and micro-wave integrated circuits share evolving process technologies. It is only natural, therefore, that students of optoelectronics be introduced to high-speed concepts in a unified manner.

This highly practical intensive introduction enables electrical engineers, applied physicists, and students to develop and identify tools for understanding, analysis, design, and characterization of high-speed components. Broad in scope, this unique text/reference examines the complementary nature of electronics and optics and emphasizes high-speed technology in which the two fields are less differentiated.

Beginning with an overview that develops a perspective and appreciation of analog high-speed technology in general, the book goes on to cover devices and circuits used at microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies, optical components, and optoelectronic integrated circuits and subsystems. Particular attention is paid to applications in the area of communications, both because of the high levels of interest in this area and because many of the relevant concepts are applicable in other fields. The book concludes with important coverage of the often-overlooked area of measurement and characterization of high-speed devices.

Fully referenced and supplemented with hundreds of helpful illustrations, Introduction to High-Speed Electronics and Optoelectronics is equally useful as a professional reference or a textbook for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate courses.

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for a senior or first-year graduate course in physics and electrical engineering. Emphasizes the concepts shared by semiconductor-based opto-electronics and microwave integrated circuits to introduce them both at the same time. Focuses on applications in communications. A broad rather than detailed treatment.
