The approach adopted in this book will, it is hoped, provide an understanding
of key areas in the field of digital synthesizers and transmitters. It is easy
to include different digital techniques in the digital synthesizers and transmitters
by using digital signal processing methods, because the signal is in
digital form. By programming the digital synthesizers and transmitters, adaptive
channel bandwidths, modulation formats, frequency hopping and data
rates are easily achieved. Techniques such as digital predistortion for power
amplifier linearization, digital compensation methods for analog I/Q modulator
nonlinearities and digital power control and ramping are presented in this
book. The flexibility of the digital synthesizers and transmitters makes them
ideal as signal generators for software radio. Software radios represent a major
change in the design paradigm for radios in which a large portion of the
functionality is implemented through programmable signal processing devices,
giving the radio the ability to change its operating parameters to accommodate
new features and capabilities. A software radio approach reduces
the content of radio frequency (RF) and other analog components of
traditional radios and emphasizes digital signal processing to enhance overall
transmitter flexibility. Software radios are emerging in commercial and military

Legacy of Secrecy: The Long Shadow of the JFK Assassination
John F. Kennedy's assassination launched a frantic search to find his killers. It also launched a flurry of covert actions by Lyndon Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, and other top officials to hide the fact that in November 1963 the United States was on the brink of invading Cuba, as part of a JFK-authorized coup. The coup plan's...

Room Acoustics We all know that a concert hall, theatre, lecture room or a church may have good or poor ‘acoustics’. As far as speech in these rooms is concerned, it is relatively simple to make some sort of judgement on their quality by rating the ease with which the spoken word is understood. However, judging the acoustics of a concert hall or an...
