About the Author
The challenge in RF design is often that the simplest of circuits can be insanely difficult because secondary effects such as parasitics play a major role in circuit behavior. This state of affairs is often referred to as the "real world," "black magic" or "art" rather than science. But RF circuits do comply with the laws of nature. Understanding these secondary effects untangles the mystery. Viewing this CD series will help you become more proficient in the design of RF and microwave circuits. The payoff is less frustration, reduced time to designs that meet specs, and higher performance. No knowledge of higher math required; some familiarity with RF design and measurement terms helpful.

About the Author / Editor
Randall Rhea was born June 10, 1947, in Findlay, Illinois. He has a BSEE degree from the University of Illinois (1969) and an MSE degree from Arizona State (1973). His Masters thesis was the individual construction and operation of earth station equipment which successfully received voice communications from Apollo 17 in lunar orbit.
He worked at Boeing, Goodyear Aerospace and Scientific Atlanta where he last held the position of Principal Engineer. His engineering assignments included antennas, filters, amplifiers, oscillators, phase-locked loops, synthesizers and receivers for radar, wireless security, CATV, satcom, data, broadband network and instrumentation systems.
Randy is the author of numerous journal and conference papers on antenna theory, amplifiers, computer-aided engineering and filter theory. He is the author of Oscillator Design and Computer Simulation, HF Filter Design and Computer Simulation, and three training course series available on CD-ROM, Filter Techniques Series, Practical RF Design Series, and High Frequency Oscillator Design, all published by Noble Publishing. He is also the author of a book-length tutorial written for Bell System engineers. He taught at DeKalb college and teaches workshops at technical meetings, universities and corporations. He is the lecturer in two video tape short courses on oscillator and filter design.
In 1985 he founded Eagleware to develop engineering software. He is the author of four of the original Eagleware programs and technical manuals. Today, Eagleware is a leading provider of high-frequency design software for electrical engineers and has thousands of users worldwide. In 1994, he founded Noble Publishing.
