Hooman Darabi is a Senior Technical Director and Fellow of Broadcom Corporation, California, and an Adjunct Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is an IEEE Solid State Circuits Society distinguished lecturer and his research interests include analog and RF IC design for wireless communications.
'[This book] should be of high interest to practicing engineers and
students alike.' Asad Abidi, University of California, Los
'[An] excellent textbook for students keenly interested to learn how to design IC transceivers. [Contains] lots of focused and relevant fundamental background from a viewpoint of the well-known industrial researcher. The book is also good as a convenient refresher for seasoned IC designers.' Bogdan Staszewski, Delft University of Technology
'Although this is not the first book on RF circuits, it is the most up to date one that I know. For instance, it includes recent circuit insights to make CMOS radio receivers more interference robust. I especially like the intuition that Hooman Darabi develops and the depth of coverage without becoming overly mathematical.' Eric Klumperink, University of Twente
