Digital Communications: Fundamentals and Applications (2nd Edition)


Master every key digital communications technology, concept, and technique.

Digital Communications, Second Edition is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the field's classic, best-selling introduction. With remarkable clarity, Dr. Bernard Sklar introduces every digital communication technology at the heart of today's wireless and Internet revolutions, providing a unified structure and context for understanding them -- all without sacrificing mathematical precision.

Sklar begins by introducing the fundamentals of signals, spectra, formatting, and baseband transmission. Next, he presents practical coverage of virtually every contemporary modulation, coding, and signal processing technique, with numeric examples and step-by-step implementation guidance. Coverage includes:

  • Signals and processing steps: from information source through transmitter, channel, receiver, and information sink
  • Key tradeoffs: signal-to-noise ratios, probability of error, and bandwidth expenditure
  • Trellis-coded modulation and Reed-Solomon codes: what's behind the math
  • Synchronization and spread spectrum solutions
  • Fading channels: causes, effects, and techniques for withstanding fading
  • The first complete how-to guide to turbo codes: squeezing maximum performance out of digital connections
  • Implementing encryption with PGP, the de facto industry standard

Whether you're building wireless systems, xDSL, fiber or coax-based services, satellite networks, or Internet infrastructure, Sklar presents the theory and the practical implementation details you need. With nearly 500 illustrations and 300 problems and exercises, there's never been a faster way to master advanced digital communications.


The CD-ROM contains a complete educational version of Elanix' SystemView DSP design software, as well as detailed notes for getting started, a comprehensive DSP tutorial, and over 50 additional communications exercises.

Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit Design (Artech House Microwave Library)
Radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) design is an exciting area for research
or product development. Technologies are constantly being improved, and as
they are, circuits formerly implemented as discrete solutions can now be integrated
onto a single chip. In addition to widely used applications such as cordless

Essential Java for Scientists and Engineers
Essential Java for Scientists and Engineers
This book serves as an introduction to the programming language Java. In addition it focuses on how Java, and object-oriented programming, can be used to solve science and engineering problems. As such, some of the examples necessarily involve aspects of first-year university mathematics, particularly in the final chapter. However, these examples...

Worst-Case Execution Time Aware Compilation Techniques for Real-Time Systems (Embedded Systems)
Worst-Case Execution Time Aware Compilation Techniques for Real-Time Systems (Embedded Systems)

For real-time systems, the worst-case execution time (WCET) is the key objective to be considered. Traditionally, code for real-time systems is generated without taking this objective into account and the WCET is computed only after code generation. Worst-Case Execution Time Aware Compilation Techniques for Real-Time Systems presents...
