Helping students become successful designers andtroubleshooters of useful communications products, thiseasy-to-read, hands-on text covers devices, circuitsand systems analysis, and design concepts in a way thatkeeps students involved and active in the learningprocess. It includes familiar existing systems andintroduces a broad range of new communicationtechnologies in wireless, high definition TV with videocompression and a broad range of fiber-optic devices,system parameters and networking. Grounded in soundtheory and engineering principles, it usesalgebra-based mathematics through calculus, and alogical design-and-analysis approach, and now includesthe very latest information on optical, Bluetooth,”Wi-Fi” cellular and Internet devices, circuits, andsystems. 1.
