RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

New to systems design - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I have been designing components like mixers and amplifiers in the 1-2 GHz range for about 4 years and due to a contract change will be focusing on system level design (commercial radar). I have seen a numbe rof posts on RF Cafe about radar so hopefully someone can direct me to a few good books, papers, and such for system planning, design, testing.

Can you tell me some titles and sources? Maybe some personal advice you could post here. Others beside me would be able to benefit from your experience. Thank you all.

Hi Ahem

For radar systems, one of the standard works I used was Skolnik, but it is now rather dated and no doubt out of print.

I think the title was (rather unimaginatively) Radar Systems Design.
