Overview

This book deals with the prominent aspects of this process for any electronic design, including a thorough treatment of computer-aided analysis emphasizing MATLAB. Most modern signal analyses make use of computer-aided analysis in one form or other, including peak detection, time base measurement, Fourier analysis, and display. While most sections concentrate on distortion mechanisms and analysis, other sections present extensive tables and data of properties of materials, frequency bands and assignments, international standards and constants, conversion factors, general mathematics, and abbreviations of communications terms.
The application of the varied technologies and disciplines addressed by these articles can bring about truly stunning results. Signal Measurement, Analysis, and Testing makes it simple for engineers to find the information and data they need to create the complex systems of both today and tomorrow.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focusing on distortion mechanisms (as in digital audio systems and video displays) and their characterization, this volume offers engineers a concise presentation of the mathematics of signal analysis and techniques to troubleshoot and repair electronic systems. Beyond the attention to distortion mechanisms and analysis, the balance of the dozen contributed chapters provide commentary, data, and tables on digital test equipment and measurement systems; Fourier waveform analysis; MATLAB as the computer-aided analysis tool of choice; and conversion factors, standards, and constants. It is ambiguously noted that this material is taken from (no date given) edited by Whitaker, who is with Technical Press in Beaverton, OR. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
