Microwave Integrated Circuits is a course designed for introducing the field of Microwave Engineering to students, engineers and academics. Since at microwave frequencies, the distributed circuit effects become very prominent, new circuit theories based on Maxwell's laws have to be introduced. Further, new circuit design techniques as well as new circuit elements are also introduced. The first part of the course deals with the basics of theory. In the later part, the designs of various microwave devices like couplers, circulators, filters and amplifiers are introduced.
