    Layout design book recommendation

    Can someone recommend a book, article, or manual that explains how to generate an RF layout for an RF power amplifier or RF circuits in general?

    Re: Layout design book recommendation

    There is no such RF Layout Fundamentals..There are some Basic Principles and Rule of Thumbs while designing a RF PCB or MMIC/RFIC Layout.
    Furthermore, PCB and MMIC/RFIC Design Rules are quite different and each designer has some habits and rules.Basic Fundamental for generic RF Layout, it can be said :

    *Grounding
    *Symmetry
    *Decoupling
    *Proper Placement

    That's all but all depends on the designer's skill,habits and knowledge.

    -keep your traces about lambda/10 long in your circuit for phase stability.
    -make sure to do em simulation to observe how your current travels through the PCB.
    -use proper DC-block and RF-choke elements for DC/AC balance of the circuit
    -model your circuit schematic as close to real-case including transmission lines, parasitics etc.
