Now in a 3rd edition, this successful book provides an intuitive approach to transceiver design, allowing a broad spectrum of readers to understand the topics clearly. It covers a wide range of data link communication design techniques, including link budgets, dynamic range and system analysis of receivers and transmitters used in data link communications, digital modulation and demodulation techniques of phase-shift keyed and frequency hopped spread spectrum systems using phase diagrams, multipath, gain control, an intuitive approach to probability, jamming reduction method using various adaptive processes, global positioning systems (GPS) data link, and direction-finding and interferometers, plus a section on broadband communications and home networking. Various techniques and designs are evaluated for modulating and sending digital data. Thus readers gain a firm understanding of the processes needed to effectively design wireless data link communication systems.

Meet the Author

Scott R. Bullock received his BSEE degree from Brigham Young University in 1979 and his MSEE degree from University of Utah in 1988. He has worked, consulted, and held positions at TI, Omnipoint, E-Systems, Fellow at Raytheon Missile Systems, Senior Director at MKS/ENI, Director at Titan, VP at Phonex Broadband, and VP at L3 Communications Satellite Networks.

Mr. Bullock specializes in data link design and system analysis. He currently holds 18 patents in the areas of spread spectrum wireless data links, frequency hop detectors, and adaptive filters. He has published several articles in spread spectrum, data links, direction finding, multipath, adaptive filters, AGCs/PLLs, and presented a paper on a D8PSK data link at the AIAA/IEEE 14th DASC conference. His analysis and designs include; Spread Spectrum Microscan Receiver, Spread Spectrum Environment Simulator, anti-jam LPI data links for both military and commercial products, high frequency Adaptive Filter, Frequency Hop detector, handheld PCS spread spectrum wireless telephone and data products, GPS data link for SCAT-I aircraft landings where he was an active participant and made a presentation at the RTCA meetings in Washington DC for establishing the data link standard. Developed commercial products including wireless telephone jacks, modems, broadband communications and networking for home use, and digital satellite systems. Mr. Bullock is presently involved with the development of wireless anti-jam, low probability of intercept, data links for missile systems and unmanned airborne vehicles.

Mr. Bullock is also the author of Broadband Communications and Home Networking(2000), also published by SciTechPublishing.
