Multiband RF Circuits and Techniques for Wireless Transmitters

W. Chen, K. Rawat, and F. M. Ghannouchi. Springer, 2016.

This book introduces systematic design methods for passive and active RF circuits and techniques, including state-of-the-art digital enhancement techniques. As the very first book dedicated to multiband RF circuits and techniques, this work provides an overview of the evolution of transmitter architecture and discusses current digital predistortion techniques. Readers will find a collection of novel research ideas and new architectures in concurrent multiband power dividers, power amplifiers and related digital enhancement techniques. This book will be of great interest to academic researchers, R&D engineers, wireless transmitter and protocol designers, as well as graduate students who wish to learn the core architectures, principles and methods of multiband RF circuits and techniques. 

Behavioral Modelling and Predistortion of Wideband Wireless Transmitters

Ghannouchi, Fadhel M, Hammi, Oualid, and Helaoui, Mohamed. 1st ed. New York: Wiley, 2015. Web.

Behavioral Modeling and Predistortion of Wideband Wireless Transmitters covers theoretical and practical aspects related to the behavioral modeling and predistortion of wireless transmitters and power amplifiers. It includes simulation software that enables the users to apply the theory presented in the book. In the first section, the reader is given the general background to nonlinear dynamic systems along with their behavioral modeling from all aspects. In the second part, a comprehensive compilation of behavioral models formulations and structures is provided, including memory polynomial based models, box oriented models such as Hammerstein-based and Wiener-based models, and neural networks-based models. The later chapters focus on practical applications of the theory and knowledge presented earlier on, together with a thorough description of practical approaches for power amplifiers characterization, behavioral model identification, and digital predistortion. Advanced topics such as joint quadrature impairments compensation and digital predistortion, as well as digital predistortion of MIMO, and concurrent multiband systems are covered in the last chapter. The book will be a valuable resource for design engineers, industrial engineers, applications engineers, postgraduate students, and researchers working on power amplifier modeling, linearization, and design.

Load-Pull Techniques with Applications to Power Amplifier Design

Ghannouchi, Fadhel M., and Mohammad S. Hashmi. 2013. Springer Ser. in Advanced Microelectronics. Web.

This first book on load-pull systems is intended for readers with a broad knowledge of high frequency transistor device characterization, nonlinear and linear microwave measurements, RF power amplifiers and transmitters. Load-Pull Techniques with Applications to Power Amplifier Design fulfills the demands of users, designers, and researchers both from industry and academia who have felt the need of a book on this topic. It presents a comprehensive reference spanning different load-pull measurement systems, waveform measurement and engineering systems, and associated calibration procedures for accurate large signal characterization.

Électromagnétisme en application (L')

P. Savard and F. M. Ghannouchi. Québec, Canada: Presses internationales Polytechnique, 1995.

Dans l'exercice de leur profession, deux atouts importants permettent aux ingénieurs, aux scientifiques et aux technologues de résoudre les problèmes d'électromagnétisme rencontrés : une solide connaissance des principes de la physique et des mathématiques, qui constituent les fondements de l'électromagnétisme, et une expérience variée de l'application de ces principes à des problèmes pratiques. Plusieurs manuels traitent en profondeur des principes de l'électromagnétisme; cependant, les questions qu'ils présentent sont souvent de nature purement théorique. L'objectif principal de cet ouvrage est de permettre au lecteur de maîtriser les notions de base de l'électromagnétisme en les appliquant à des problèmes pratiques. Le processus de résolution de problèmes exige de plus de l'étudiant qu'il fasse la synthèse de ses connaissances théoriques pour trouver les solutions. Les exemples présentés couvrent plusieurs champs du génie électrique : circuits électroniques, électrotechnique, automatisation et communications. Ce livre intéressera les étudiants en génie électrique et physique. De plus, les professeurs de sciences appliquées et de génie y trouveront un condensé des principes fondamentaux et des équations de base utilisés en électromagnétisme ainsi qu'un précieux recueil de problèmes.
