RF CIRCUIT DESIGN - Chris Bowick - a book review


Why do I recommend this particular reference books? RF CIRCUIT DESIGN - Chris Bowick

Well I've never met Chris, never spoken nor corresponded with him. My first copy of RF CIRCUIT DESIGN by Chris Bowick I purchased

Book cover - RF Circuit Design

I have never read a better book on RF design. Chris's book is a constant reference for the serious RF designer. You will be amazed at the quality and the quantity of the content. - 176 pages

Hi Ian,

Just a quick note to say thanks for the book-shop department. I took your advice and bought the book by Chris Bowick. It's great. The material is very well presented and it is just right for about every level from beginner to engineer. Good choice!
