Introduction to Mechatronics and Measurement Systems 4th International Edition
“Introduction to Mechatronics and Measurement Systems” provides comprehensive and accessible coverage of the evolving field of mechatronics for mechanical, electrical and aerospace engineering majors. The author presents a concise review of electrical circuits, solid-state devices, digital circuits, and motors – all of which are fundamental to understanding mechatronic systems. Mechatronics design considerations are presented throughout the text, and in “Design Example” features. The text’s numerous illustrations, examples, class discussion items, and chapter questions & exercises provide an opportunity to understand and apply mechatronics concepts to actual problems encountered in engineering practice. This text has been tested over several years to ensure accuracy. The authors maintain a Mechatronics web site with examples and animations related to thetext and much other relevant material.
The Acclaimed RF Microelectronics Best-Seller, Expanded and Updated for the Newest Architectures, Circuits, and Devices Wireless communication has become almost as ubiquitous as electricity, but RF design continues to challenge engineers and researchers. In the 15 years since the first edition of this classic text, the demand for higher performance has led to an explosive growth of RF design techniques. In RF Microelectronics, Second Edition, Behzad Razavi systematically teaches the fundamentals as well as the state-of-the-art developments in the analysis and design of RF circuits and transceivers. Razavi has written the second edition to reflect today’s RF microelectronics, covering key topics in far greater detail. At nearly three times the length of the first edition, the second edition is an indispensable tome for both students and practicing engineers. With his lucid prose, Razavi now *Offers a stronger tutorial focus along with hundreds of examples and problems*Teaches design as well as analysis with the aid of step-by-step design procedures and a chapter dedicated to the design of a dual-band WiFi transceiver*Describes new design paradigms and analysis techniques for circuits such as low-noise amplifiers, mixers, oscillators, and frequency dividers This edition’s extensive coverage includes brand new chapters on mixers, passive devices, integer-N synthesizers, and fractional-N synthesizers. Razavi’s teachings culminate in a new chapter that begins with WiFi’s radio specifications and, step by step, designs the transceiver at the transistor level. Coverage includes *Core RF principles, including noise and nonlinearity, with ties to analog design, microwave theory, and communication systems *An intuitive treatment of modulation theory and wireless standards from the standpoint of the RF IC designer*Transceiver architectures such as heterodyne, sliding-IF, directconversion, image-reject, and low-IF topologies.* Low-noise amplifiers, including cascode common-gate and commonsource topologies, noise-cancelling schemes, and reactance-cancelling configurations*Passive and active mixers, including their gain and noise analysis and new mixer topologies *Voltage-controlled oscillators, phase noise mechanisms, and various VCO topologies dealing with noisepower-tuning trade-offs*All-new coverage of passive devices, such as integrated inductors, MOS varactors, and transformers*A chapter on the analysis and design of phase-locked loops with emphasis on low phase noise and low spur levels*Two chapters on integer-N and fractional-N synthesizers, including the design of frequency dividers*Power amplifier principles and circuit topologies along with transmitter architectures, such as polar modulation and outphasing

Stephen J. Chapman is a leading author in the area of machines. He brings his expertise to the table again in “An Introduction to Electric Machinery and Power Systems.” This text is designed to be used in a course that combines machinery and power systems into one semester. Chapman’s new book is designed to be flexible and allow instructors to choose chapters “a la carte”, sot he instructor controls the emphasis. Chapman has written a book that give students what they need to know to be real-world engineers. It focuses on principles and teaches students how to use information as opposed to do a lot of calculations that would rarely be done by a practicing engineer. He compresses the material by focusing on its essence, underlying principles. Matlab is used throughout the book in examples and problems.
This book introduces the theoretical elements at the basis of various classes of algorithms commonly employed in the physical layer (and, in part, in MAC layer) of wireless communications systems. It focuses on single user systems, so ignoring multiple access techniques. Moreover, emphasis is put on single-input single-output (SISO) systems, although some relevant topics about multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems are also illustrated.
- Comprehensive wireless specific guide to algorithmic techniques
- Provides a detailed analysis of channel equalization and channel coding for wireless applications
- Unique conceptual approach focusing in single user systems
- Covers algebraic decoding, modulation techniques, channel coding and channel equalisation
From the Back Cover
An advanced introduction to algorithmic techniques for wireless communications, blending basic principles with advanced concepts and techniques
This reference provides a high-level introduction to the study of algorithmic techniques employed in digital wireless communication systems over fading channels. Its main objective is to develop a theoretical framework that will enable the reader to develop solutions to detection, equalization, channel estimation, error correction coding and coded modulation problems in wireless communications.
This book discusses in detail deterministic and stochastic descriptions of wireless channels, single-carrier and multicarrier digital modulation techniques, optimal signal detection, channel estimation techniques, channel equalization algorithms, classical and modern channel coding schemes, coded modulation techniques, and iterative methods for channel equalization and decoding of channel codes.
Special features include:
- Important results previously scattered over a huge number of publications are now collected in a single volume
- A broad coverage of fundamental topics in wireless communications, taking into consideration both basic and advanced transmission techniques
- An historical perspective on various important research areas in the field of wireless communication techniques
- Highlights trends in various research areas in the field of wireless communications
This textbook deals with the analysis and design of analog CMOS integrated circuits, emphasizing recent technological developments and design paradigms that students and practicing engineers need to master to succeed in today’s industry. Based on the author’s teaching and research experience in the past ten years, the text follows three general principles: motivate the reader by describing the significance and application of each idea with real-world problems; force the reader to look at concepts from an intuitive point of view, preparing him/her for more complex problems; complement the intuition by rigorous analysis, confirming the results obtained by the intuitive, yet rough approach.
