PNIE Digital Communications: Fundamentals and Applications 2nd Edition
For courses in Digital Communications. Exceptionally accessible, this book presents the often “difficult” concepts of digital communications in an easy-to- understand manner-without diluting the mathematical precision. Using a student-friendly approach, it develops the important techniques in the context of a unified structure (in block diagram form)-providing organization and structure to a field that has, and continues, to grow rapidly, and ensuring that students gain an awareness of the “big picture” even while delving into the details (the most up-to-date modulation, coding, and signal processing techniques that have become the basic tools of our modern era). It traces signals and key processing steps from the information source through the transmitter, channel, receiver, and ultimately to the information sink.
Balanis’ second edition of Advanced Engineering Electromagnetics – a global best-seller for over 20 years – covers the advanced knowledge engineers involved in electromagnetic need to know, particularly as the topic relates to the fast-moving, continually evolving, and rapidly expanding field of wireless communications. The immense interest in wireless communications and the expected increase in wireless communications systems projects (antenna, microwave and wireless communication) points to an increase in the number of engineers needed to specialize in this field.
In addition, the Book Companion Site contains a rich collection of multimedia resources for use with this text. Resources include:
- Ready-made lecture notes in Power Point format for all the chapters.
- Forty-nine MATLAB® programs to compute, plot and animate some of the wave phenomena
- Nearly 600 end-of-chapter problems, that’s an average of 40 problems per chapter (200 new problems; 50% more than in the first edition)
- A thoroughly updated Solutions Manual
- 2500 slides for Instructors are included.
Add some SPARK to your study of ELECTRICITY
Having trouble understanding the fundamentals of electricity? Problem solved! Electricity Demystified, Second Edition, makes it shockingly easy to learn the basic concepts.
Written in a step-by-step format, this practical guide begins by covering direct current (DC), voltage, resistance, circuits, cells, and batteries. The book goes on to discuss alternating current (AC), power supplies, wire, and cable. Magnetism and electromagnetic effects are also addressed. Detailed examples and concise explanations make it easy to understand the material. End-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key concepts.
It’s a no-brainer! You’ll learn about:
- Ohm’s Law, power, and energy
- Kirchhoff’s Laws
- Electrochemical energy
- Electricity in the home
- Protecting electronic equipment
- Electromagnetic interference
- Practical magnetism
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Electricity Demystified, Second Edition, powers up your understanding of this essential subject.
About the Author
Stan Gibilisco has authored or co-authored more than 50 nonfiction books in the fields of electronics, general science, mathematics, and computing. He has worked as a technical writer in industry, as a shortwave radio broadcast station technician, as a radio-frequency design engineer, and as a magazine editor. One of Stan’s books, the Encyclopedia of Electronics (TAB Books, 1985), was named by the American Library Association (ALA) in its list of “Best References of the 1980s.” Another of his books, the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Personal Computing (McGraw-Hill, 1995), was named as a “Best Reference of 1996” by the ALA. Stan is considered the “father” of the DeMYSTiFieD series.
Stutzman’s 3rd edition of Antenna Theory and Design provides a more pedagogical approach with a greater emphasis on computational methods. New features include additional modern material to make the text more exciting and relevant to practicing engineers; new chapters on systems, low-profile elements and base station antennas; organizational changes to improve understanding; more details to selected important topics such as microstrip antennas and arrays; and expanded measurements topic.
