Digital Communications : Principles and systems, Hardback Book


A worldwide digital and wireless communication revolution has taken place in the last 20 years which has created a high demand in industry for graduates with in-depth expertise in digital transmission techniques and a sound and complete understanding of their core principles.

Digital communications: Principles and systems recognises that although digital communications is developing at a fast pace, the core principles remain the same.

It therefore concentrates on giving the reader a thorough understanding of core principles and extensive coaching in the solution of practical problems drawn from various application areas.

The intention is that after studying the material presented, the student will have a solid foundation free of knowledge gaps, and will be fully equipped to undertake digital communication systems analysis, design and computer simulations, and to deal with specialised applications and follow advances in the technology.

Topics covered include: overview of digital communicationlinear and nonlinear channels and systemssampling of baseband and bandpass signalsquantisation and PCMsource coding and lossless data compressionline codes and modulationtransmission through bandlimited AWGN channelstransmitted digital signalserror control codinglink analysis and design. Many works on emerging digital transmission techniques are largely confined to academic research papers.

This book will give postgraduate students and practicing engineers a sound mastery of the subject.
