Signals and Systems 2nd International Edition
Design and MATLAB concepts have been integrated in text. Integrates applications as it relates signals to a remote sensing system, a controls system, radio astronomy, a biomedical system and seismology.
Retaining the superb pedagogical style, the text elaborates fundamentals of signal and systems and core communication topics. It is then translated into tools that are essential to the design and analysis of digital communications. Featuring a seamless blend of mathematics and heuristics, carefully crafted examples to clarify mathematics abstraction, and new and updated MATLAB exercises, this text provides a thorough coverage of modern communication system theory and application that is easily accessible to students.
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.
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
About the Author
Behzad Razavi, Professor of Electrical Engineering at UCLA, leads the Communication Circuits Laboratory (CCL). Emphasizing the use of mainstream CMOS technologies, CCL’s research seeks and exploits new devices, circuits, and architectures to push the performance envelope. Razavi holds a BSEE from Sharif University of Technology and MSEE and PhDEE degrees from Stanford. He was with ATT Bell Laboratories and HP Labs until 1996. An IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and IEEE Fellow, his books include Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits, Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communications, and Fundamentals of Microelectronics.
The authors present the background, notation, and nomenclature essential for students to understand the various and independent technical approaches, that exist in the field of mechanism, kinematics, and dynamics. Coverage of all analysis and development methods is balanced, with the use of both analytic and graphic tools. This text is ideal for undergraduate students of mechanical engineering.
