> If you are interested in a book on how package modeling is being done for
> RF parts read on.
> I work for TriQuint Semiconductor. We build GaAs parts for cell phones
> and other applications mostly at 1 to 2 GHz. I model packages up to about
> 10 GHz to account for harmonics. I have written a book on package
> modeling that has just been published. Below are the details.

> TriQuint Semiconductor,Oregon, USA
> Volume 2
> Package Electrical Modeling, Thermal Modeling, and
> Processing for GaAs Wireless Applications reviews
> the practical aspects of electrical and thermal
> modeling of packages and has no equivalent on the
> market, since it discusses analog (microwave)
> packaging as opposed to digital packaging.
> This book emphasizes low-cost industry-standard
> packages; however, the principles translate well to
> other categories of packages. The need for this book
> arises from the fact that low-cost packages have not
> been optimized for high-frequency use. With
> high-volume commercial wireless markets now
> expanding and cost reduction a primary concern, the
> interest in modeling as a significant cost-cutting tool is
> high.
> Package Electrical Modeling, Thermal Modeling, and
> Processing for GaAs Wireless Applications addresses
> this interest and need, providing a comprehensive
> approach to the state-of-the-art modeling and
> processing techniques that professional engineers are
> just beginning to utilize. Engineers and professionals
> in the field of wireless packaging will find this book
> interesting and of great value to their work.
