Introduction to Wireless and Mobile Systems

Posted on, 2nd September, 2016 by admin

This text explains the general principles of how wireless systems work, how mobility is supported, what the underlying infrastructure is and what interactions are needed among different functional components. Designed as a textbook appropriate for undergraduate or graduate courses in Computer Science (CS), Computer Engineering (CE), and Electrical Engineering (EE), Introduction to Wireless and Mobile Systems third edition focuses on qualitative descriptions and the realistic explanations of relationships between wireless systems and performance parameters. Rather than offering a thorough history behind the development of wireless technologies or an exhaustive list of work being carried out, the authors help CS, CE, and EE students learn this exciting technology through relevant examples such as understanding how a cell phone starts working as soon as they get out of an airplane.

Preface Every student who plans to work in business and industry must master the art of technical communication. Indeed, your ability to communicate effectively in print, in presentations, and in electronic media will play a major role in your suc- cess in your chosen profession. Technical Communication: A Practical Approach is grounded in the principle that you will learn to communicate more efectively by writing early and as much as possible in a course. It contains a wealth of guidelines, examples, and models to help you become a competent professional writer. When students are asked to describe their professional goals for the next I 0 years. their comments often suggest that they hope to rise to important positions in the workplace and make genuine contributions to their professions. Such long- term thinking is crucial, keeping you on course in your life. Yet, ultimately, the way you handle the small details of daily life most influences the real contribution you will make in the long run. If you do good work, believe in what you do, and communicate well with others-both interpersonally and in writing-success will come your way. This book tries to show that dear, concise, and honest writing is one of the most powerful tools at your disposal.Download Now..

Developed from the author’s graduate-level courses, the first edition of this book filled the need for a comprehensive, self-contained, and hands-on treatment of radar systems analysis and design. It quickly became a bestseller and was widely adopted by many professors. The second edition built on this successful format by rearranging and updating topics and code. Reorganized, expanded, and updated, Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB®, Third Edition continues to help graduate students and engineers understand the many issues involved in radar systems design and analysis. Each chapter includes the mathematical and analytical coverage necessary for obtaining a solid understanding of radar theory. Additionally, MATLAB functions/programs in each chapter further enhance comprehension of the theory and provide a source for establishing radar system design requirements. Incorporating feedback from professors and practicing engineers, the third edition of this bestselling text reflects the state of the art in the field and restructures the material to be more convenient for course use. It includes several new topics and many new end-of-chapter problems. This edition also takes advantage of the new features in the latest version of MATLAB. Updated MATLAB code is available for download on the book’s CRC Press web page.Download Now..

SC-FDMA for Mobile Communications

Posted on, 15th March, 2016 by admin

SC-FDMA for Mobile Communications examines Single-Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMA). Explaining this rapidly evolving system for mobile communications, it describes its advantages and limitations and outlines possible solutions for addressing its current limitations. The book explores the emerging trend of cooperative communication with SC-FDMA and how it can improve the physical layer security. It considers the design of distributed coding schemes and protocols for wireless relay networks where users cooperate to send their data to the destination. Supplying you with the required foundation in cooperative communication and cooperative diversity, it presents an improved Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT)-based SC-FDMA system. It introduces a distributed space–time coding scheme and evaluates its performance and studies distributed SFC for broadband relay channels. [list][*]Presents relay selection schemes for improving the physical layer [*]Introduces a new transceiver scheme for the SC-FDMA system [*]Describes space–time/frequency coding schemes for SC-FDMA [*]Includes MATLAB® codes for all simulation experiments [/list]The book investigates Carrier Frequency Offsets (CFO) for the Single-Input Single-Output (SISO) SC-FDMA system, and Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) SC-FDMA system simulation software. Covering the design of cooperative diversity schemes for the SC-FDMA system in the uplink direction, it also introduces and studies a new transceiver scheme for the SC-FDMA system.Download Now..

Reflect array antennas refer to the class of radiating structures that are comprised of an array of radiating elements, re-radiating the energy that is impinged on them from one or more radiating feeds that are located in free space. The constituent radiators that build a reflect array can be shaped to bring about some flexibility in the way that antenna operates such as multi band/polarization operation. The printed nature of these elements allow integration of active elements that can further enhance the functionality of the reflect array. This allows for capabilities such as power amplification, adaptive beam shaping, and beam switching. This resource presents readers with design guidelines along with an ample amount of material on different types of reflect arrays and methods of analysis. This book begins with introductory material on reflect array antennas and progresses to the presentation of state-of-the-art research in the field. A direct comparison with conventional reflector antennas is provided, focusing on conventional efficiency figures of reflectors. Moreover, this book offers remarks on the future direction of reflect array research and also potential applications of the technology in face of the emergence of new fabrication techniques to accommodate both passive and active elements.Download Now..

Satellite networking is an exciting and expanding field that has evolved significantly since the launch of the first telecommunications satellite, from telephone and broadcast to broadband ATM and Internet. With increasing bandwidth and mobility demands on the horizon, satellites have become an integral part of the Global Network Infrastructure (GNI).
