Microwave and millimeter wave systems are commonly used in everyday life, from wireless communications to radar and wireless sensor networks. Nonetheless, technology and material advances combined with societal needs lead to novel emerging applications and challenges that such systems are further required to address. This book confronted the reader with a selected characteristic set of these challenges from different perspectives of simulation and optimization methodologies to circuit and system level design.

There is room to expand the presented material in the future along several ongoing research tracks. One of those is the special importance of flexible materials and the integration of electronics on flexible substrates. A fundamental category of flexible electronics addressed within the book was smart textiles and off and on body communication networks. Printed antennas and passive circuits with promising performance in microwave frequencies have already been reported combining dielectric textiles with conductive electrotextiles as well as large scale fabrication methods such as screen printing ...
