Overview

Exceptionally up-to-date, this book provides a broad introduction to basic analog and digital principles and their application to the design and analysis of real- world communication systems. It provides readers with a working knowledge of how to use both classical mathematical and personal computer methods to analyze, design, and simulate modern communication systems. MATLAB is integrated throughout. Study-aid examples and homework problems are included, many of which require solution via a personal computer. MATLAB illustrative examples and plots are included. Balanced coverage of both analog and digital communication systems with an emphasis on the design of digital communication systems. Case studies of modern communication systems are provided. Over 500 problems provided. For electrical engineers.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text for junior and senior engineering students and for an introductory graduate course, covering practical aspects of communication systems developed from a theoretical basis. Uses a deterministic approach with some statistics, and presents practical case studies of communication systems. Includes reference appendices on mathematics, computer communication systems, and communication system standards. This fifth edition contains new examples and exercises, many requiring solutions using a personal computer. A disk of personal computer solutions for some 60 problems is available.

PREFACE

Continuing the tradition of the first to fifth editions of this book, this new edition provides the latest up-to-date treatment of digital communication systems. It includes a number of new study-aid examples and homework problems, many of which require solutions via a personal computer. It is written as a textbook for junior or senior engineering students and is also appropriate for an introductory graduate course or as a modern technical reference for practicing electrical engineers.

To learn about communication systems, it is essential to first understand how communication systems work. Based on the principles of communications (power, frequency spectra, and Fourier analysis) that are covered in the first five chapters of this book, this understanding is motivated by the use of extensive examples, study-aid problems, and the inclusion of adopted standards. Especially interesting is the material on wire and wireless communication systems. Also of importance is the effect of noise on these systems, since, without noise (described by probability and random processes), one could communicate to the limits of the universe with negligible transmitted power. In summary, this book covers the essentials needed for the understanding of wire and wireless communication systems and includes adopted standards. These essentials are

  • How communication systems work: Chapters 1 through 5.
  • The effect of noise: Chapters 6 and 7.
  • Wire and Wireless Communication Systems: Chapter 8.

This, book is ideal for either a one-semester or a two-semester course. For a one-semester course, the basics ofhow communication systems work may be taught by using the first five chapters (with selected readings from Chapter 8). For a two-semester course, the whole book is used.

This book covers practical aspects of communication systems developed from a sound theoretical basis.
