Telecommunication Circuit Design, Second Edition covers the basic concepts of telecommunications, the design of subsystems, and the practical realization of the electronic circuits that make up telecommunication systems. It combines circuit design with telecommunication theory to present a practical, balanced approach to the study of the field.
The author breaks down telecommunications systems into functional blocks, then studies each functional block in terms of the electronic devices used, circuit components, and power requirements. Sections on the Internet, the basics and practical aspects of facsimile transmission, multiple access techniques including FDMA and TDMA, spread–spectrum methods including FHMA and CDMA as well as phase modulation have been added to bring this edition up to date. The author uses illustrative examples throughout to describe these modern systems:
∗ Amplitude modulated (AM) radio and frequency modulated (FM) radio
∗ Telephone networks
∗ Facsimile machines
∗ Pagers, cordless phones, and cellular telephones
∗ Satellite and fiber optic transmission
Though an excellent tutorial for engineering students, the author′s practical approach to electronic circuit design also makes this comprehensive book useful as a review and reference for professionals in the telecommunications industry.
