Telecommunications Breakdown: Concepts of Communication Transmitted Via Software-Defined Radio

Telecommunications Breakdown: Concepts of Communication Transmitted Via Software-Defined Radio Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Written as an introductory textbook for digital wireless communication, this volume introduces the step-by-step procedures needed for building a digital radio incorporating typical system components. Johnson (electrical and computer engineering, Cornell U.) and Sethares (electrical and computer engineering, U. of Wisconsin at Madison) describe a MATLAB realization of the components, assessment of component performance, and component integration. The CD-ROM contains classroom aids, the necessary MATLAB code, and an extra chapter on digital quadrature amplitude modulation radio.

Synopsis:

This book reflects the recent shift in telecommunications technology from hardware to software by focusing on the design of a digital software-defined radio. "Telecommunications Breakdown" helps readers build a complete digital radio that includes each part of a typical digital communication system. By following each chapter, users create a Matlab realization of the various pieces of a typical digital communication system, exploring key ideas along the way. It defines the three steps in the creation of a working digital radio: building the pieces, assessing the performance of the pieces, and integrating the pieces together. In the final chapter, the reader " puts it all together" to build a fully functional receiver (not operational in real time). For workers in the field of telecommunications.

Synopsis:

The fundamental principles of telecommunications have remained much the same since Shannon's time. What has changed, and is continuing to change, is how those principles are deployed in technology. One of the major ongoing changes is the shift from hardware to software. "Telecommunication Breakdown: Concepts of Communication Transmitted via Software-Defined Radio" reflects this trend by focusing on the design of a digital software-defined radio.

"Telecommunication Breakdown. Concepts of Communication Transmitted via Software-Defined Radio" helps the reader build a complete digital radio that includes each part of a typical digital communication system. Chapter by chapter, the reader creates a MATLAB(R) realization of the various pieces of the system, exploring the key ideas along the way. In the final chapter, the reader "puts it all together" by building a complete receiver. This is accomplished using only knowledge of calculus, Fourier transforms, and MATT-AB. "Key benefits: "

  • a hands-on approach that provides the reader with a sense of continuity and motivation for exploring communication system concepts
  • provides invaluable preparation for industry, where software-defined digital radio is increasingly important
  • CD-ROM extras include lesson PDFs; final projects; "received signals" for assignments and projects; all MATLAR code presented in the text; a bonus chapter on QAM Radio
