Pozar's new edition of microwave engineering includes more material on active circuits, noise, nonlinear effects, and wireless systems. Chapters on noise and nonlinear distortion, and active devices have been added along with the coverage of noise and more material on intermodulation distortion and related nonlinear effects.
An ideal text and a ready reference on the latest in microwave electronic technology, this book provides a unified presentation of microwave solid-state devices, microwave tubes and microwave circuits. This Third Edition has been extensively revised to better reflect modern advances in microwave technology. The text is ideal for microwaves or microwave engineering physical electronics microwave electronics courses.
The second edition of this accessible book provides readers with an introductory treatment of communication theory as applied to the transmission of information-bearing signals. While it covers analog communications, the emphasis is placed on digital technology. It begins by presenting the functional blocks that constitute the transmitter and receiver of a communication system. Readers will next learn about electrical noise and then progress to multiplexing and multiple access techniques.
The mobile communications market remains the fastest growing segment of the global computing and communications business. The rapid progress and convergence of the field has created a need for new techniques and solutions, knowledgeable professionals to create and implement them, and courses to teach the background theory and technologies while pointing the way towards future trends. In this book Jochen Schiller draws on his extensive experience to provide a thorough grounding in mobile communications, describing the state of the art in industry and research while giving a detailed technical background to the area. The book covers all the important aspects of mobile and wireless communications from the internet to signals, access protocols and cellular systems, emphasizing the key area of digital data transfer. It uses a wide range of examples and other teaching aids, making it suitable for self-study and university classes.
Thorough coverage of basic digital communication system principles ensures that readers are exposed to all basic relevant topics in digital communication system design. The use of CD player and JPEG image coding standard as examples of systems that employ modern communication principles allows readers to relate the theory to practical systems. Over 180 worked-out examples throughout the book aids readers in understanding basic concepts. Over 480 problems involving applications to practical systems such as satellite communications systems, ionospheric channels, and mobile radio channels gives readers ample opportunity to practice the concepts they have just learned. With an emphasis on digital communications, Communication Systems Engineering, Second Editionintroduces the basic principles underlying the analysis and design of communication systems. In addition, this book gives a solid introduction to analog communications and a review of important mathematical foundation topics. New material has been added on wireless communication systems—GSM and CDMA/IS-94; turbo codes and iterative decoding; multicarrier (OFDM) systems; multiple antenna systems. Includes thorough coverage of basic digital communication system principles—including source coding, channel coding, baseband and carrier modulation, channel distortion, channel equalization, synchronization, and wireless communications. Includes basic coverage of analog modulation such as amplitude modulation, phase modulation, and frequency modulation as well as demodulation methods. For use as a reference for electrical engineers for all basic relevant topics in digital communication system design.
The text is flexible and can easily be used in a one-semester course or there is enough depth to cover two semesters. Its comprehensive nature makes it a great book for students to keep referring to in their professional careers. This best-selling book in "Digital Communications" by John G. Proakis has been revised to reflect the current trends in the field. Some of the topics that have been added include Turbo codes, Antenna Arrays, Iterative Detection, and Digital Cellular Systems. Also new to this edition are electronic figures for presentation materials found on the website.
This book offers the most complete, up-to-date coverage available on the principles of digital communications. It focuses on basic issues, relating theory to practice wherever possible. Numerous examples worked out in detail, have been included to help the reader develop an intuitive grasp of the theory. Because the book covers a broad range of topics in digital communications, it satisfies a variety of backgrounds and interests and offers a great deal of flexibility for teaching the course. The author has included suggested course outlines for courses at the undergraduate or graduate levels.
Can be used in any course in which students use the Internet. For undergraduate Business Communication courses, upper-division undergraduate courses or graduate-level or in Information Management, Communication, or Management, or MBA module courses.
