Theory and Design of Digital Communication Systems

Cambridge University Press
Free sample

Providing the underlying principles of digital communication and the design techniques of real-world systems, this textbook prepares senior undergraduate and graduate students for the engineering practices required in industry. Covering the core concepts, including modulation, demodulation, equalization, and channel coding, it provides step-by-step mathematical derivations to aid understanding of background material. In addition to describing the basic theory, the principles of system and subsystem design are introduced, enabling students to visualize the intricate connections between subsystems and understand how each aspect of the design supports the overall goal of achieving reliable communications. Throughout the book, theories are linked to practical applications with over 250 real-world examples, whilst 370 varied homework problems in three levels of difficulty enhance and extend the text material. With this textbook, students can understand how digital communication systems operate in the real world, learn how to design subsystems, and evaluate end-to-end performance with ease and confidence.

This textbook will provide both undergraduates and practising engineers with an up-to-date and thorough grounding in the concepts of modern digital transmission. The book is not encyclopaedic, rather it selects the key concepts and processes and explains them in a deliberate pedagogic style. These concepts and processes are then illustrated by a number of system descriptions. The book is divided into three parts. The longest, Part II, describes the basic processes of digital transmission, such as matched filter detection, pulse shaping, line coding, channel coding, error detection and correction, etc. Understanding the concepts behind these processes requires a grasp of basic mathematical models, and this is provided in Part I. Finally, to put the processes in context, Part III describes elements of the public switched telephone network. The text is written throughout in a modern, digital context, and is comprehensively illustrated with helpful figures. Although the mathematical models (time- and frequency-domain concepts) have wider relevance, they are developed specifically for modelling digital signals. The processes described are those found in current transmission systems, and the description of the PSTN includes an outline of newly formulated standards for the synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH), SONET and for broadband ISDN (ATM). The book will be of great value to 2nd and 3rd year undergraduates studying telecommunications, as well as to graduate trainees and practising engineers. It is appropriate for either private study or as a text associated with a taught telecommunications course. The many worked examples and exercises with solutions will be particularly helpful.
In the last fifty years, extensive studies have been carried out worldwide in the field of adaptive array systems. However, far from being a mature technology with little research left to tackle, there is seemingly unlimited scope to develop the fundamental characteristics and applications of adaptive antennas for future 3G and 4G mobile communications systems, ultra wideband wireless and satellite and navigation systems, and this informative text shows you how! Provides an accessible resource on adaptive array fundamentals as well as coverage of adaptive algorithms and advanced topics Analyses the performance of various wideband beamforming techniques in wideband array processing Comprehensively covers implementation issues related to such elements as circular arrays, channel modelling and transmit beam forming, highlighting the challenges facing a designer during the development phase Supports practical implementation considerations with detailed case studies on wideband arrays, radar, sonar and biomedical imaging, terrestrial wireless systems and satellite communication systems Includes examples and problems throughout to aid understanding Companion website features Solutions Manual, Matlab Programs and Electronic versions of some figures

Adaptive Array Systems is essential reading for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers in the field of adaptive array systems. It will also have instant appeal to engineers and designers in industry engaged in developing and deploying the technology. This volume will also be invaluable to those working in radar, sonar and bio-medical applications.

A thorough revision that provides a clear understanding of the basic principles of microcontrollers using C programming and PIC18F assembly language

This book presents the fundamental concepts of assembly language programming and interfacing techniques associated with typical microcontrollers. As part of the second edition's revisions, PIC18F assembly language and C programming are provided in separate sections so that these topics can be covered independent of each other if desired. This extensively updated edition includes a number of fundamental topics. Characteristics and principles common to typical microcontrollers are emphasized. Interfacing techniques associated with a basic microcontroller such as the PIC18F are demonstrated from chip level via examples using the simplest possible devices, such as switches, LEDs, Seven-Segment displays, and the hexadecimal keyboard. In addition, interfacing the PIC18F with other devices such as LCD displays, ADC, and DAC is also included. Furthermore, topics such as CCP (Capture, Compare, PWM) and Serial I/O using C along with simple examples are also provided.

Microcontroller Theory and Applications with the PIC18F, 2nd Edition is a comprehensive and self-contained book that emphasizes characteristics and principles common to typical microcontrollers. In addition, the text:

Includes increased coverage of C language programming with the PIC18F I/O and interfacing techniques Provides a more detailed explanation of PIC18F timers, PWM, and Serial I/O using C Illustrates C interfacing techniques through the use of numerous examples, most of which have been implemented successfully in the laboratory

This new edition of Microcontroller Theory and Applications with the PIC18F is excellent as a text for undergraduate level students of electrical/computer engineering and computer science.
