Communication Systems Engineering
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 Edition introduces 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.
