Introduction to Communications Engineering
This book considers the engineering aspects of modern communication systems, with particular attention given to the practical system considerations in the end-to-end construction of a typical communication link. The text is designed to provide readers with a solid background in current terminology, methodology, and procedures. This updated edition places greater emphasis on modern technology and hardware considerations, with integrated treatment of analog and digital systems. New material on oscillators, frequency generators, mixers, amplifiers, and digital and switching circuitry is included and there are new examples and problems.
