If you are working with circuits based on solid state devices, diodes and transistors, designing radio-frequency circuits, or regularly involved in any area requiring a functional knowledge of nonlinear oscillations and stability concepts, this book provides you with an indepth look at the very complex and often unforeseen behavior of nonlinear circuits. You find detailed coverage of circuits used in power amplifiers, voltage-controlled oscillators, frequency dividers, frequency multipliers, self oscillating mixers, and phased-locked loops.

This unique resource gives you greater insight into the design solutions that nonlinear circuits offer, presenting explanations and detection techniques for many "anomalous" phenomena often encountered in practice. You gain a better understanding of nonlinear oscillation theory and stability issues as you learn new techniques for the efficient steady-state simulation of these circuits. The book helps you overcome common design difficulties such as stability analysis of nonlinear regimes and the determination of the stable operation ranges of nonlinear circuits. Moreover, this practical reference covers chaotic solutions in microwave circuits and the transformation in circuit behavior that often precedes these solutions.
