About the Book

Features Explanations of practical communication systems presented in the context of theory. Over 300 excellent illustrations help students visualize difficult concepts and demonstrate practical applications. Over 120 worked-out examples promote mastery of new concepts, plus over 130 drill problems with answers extend these principles. A wide variety of problems, all new to this edition -- including realistic applications, computer-based problems, and design problems. Coverage of current topics of interest, such as fiber optics, spread spectrum systems and Integrated Digital Services Networks.

Read from the Book

This textbook presents to undergraduates an introductory explanation of communication systems, with the emphasis on signal design and modulation. The approach is therefore tailored to a careful development of the mathematical principles upon which such systems are based, using examples from a wide variety of current communication systems wherever possible. These range from commercial broadcasting and telephone systems to satellite telemetry and radar. Extended Topical Coverage Material added in this third edition is, primarily, about digital methods and reflects the continually increasing importance of digital signal transmission and modulation in communication systems. New material on the use of fiber optics in communications and the integrated services digital network (ISDN) has been added in Chapter 7, as well as an expended treatment of Nyquist waveform shaping for control of ISI. Optimum filtering methods for use with ISI criteria have been included in Chapter 9. Chapter 10 has an expanded treatment of FSK and both parallel and serial MSK, as well as two new sections on spread spectrum systems. Therefore, the presentation in this last chapter includes digital modulation methods that are currently being investigated for new communication systems designs. Approach and Pedagogical Features Because this textbook is intended for undergraduates, the material is written in as explicit a manner as possible and is clearly and liberally illustrated.
