Electronic Communications: Principles and Systems 1st Edition

William D. Stanley, John M. Jeffords

  • Published
  • 800 Pages

Overview

This book develops a solid understanding of the general principles that govern all communications systems. Topics include traditional analog communication techniques such as AM and FM, modern digital systems, radar, wireless, networking, consumer communications systems, and many other areas. Practical applications are stressed with an emphasis on signal processing at a systems level, in order to provide a better background for readers as technology advances and new integrated circuits become available.

William D. Stanley,

William D. Stanley is an Eminent Professor Emeritus at Old Dominion University and was a recipient of the State Council of Higher Education in Virginia Outstanding Faculty Award. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of South Carolina and the Master of Science and Ph.D. degrees from North Carolina State University. All degrees were in Electrical Engineering. Dr. Stanley is a Registered Professional Engineer in the Commonwealth of Virginia. He is also a Senior Member of the IEEE and Life Member of ASEE.

John M. Jeffords,

John M. Jeffords retired from the United States Navy after twenty-four years as an air crewman and aircraft maintenance officer. While attending law school at the College of William and Mary he started teaching electrical engineering technology courses at Old Dominion University and continued to do so after passing the bar and commencing his law practice. After several years he decided he preferred teaching to practicing law, and taught electrical engineering technology and information technology courses for fifteen years.
  • thorough and well-structured explanations help foster a deeper understanding of the �whys� behind the design, operation, and service of communication systems
  • abundant example problems are worked-out in detail, many utilizing SystemVue® by Elanix, Multisim®, and MATLAB® to provide readers with powerful simulation tools at the circuit, mathematical, and system levels
  • broad coverage is directed towards the practical interpretation and application of the tools rather than the formal mathematical derivations characteristic of advanced communications texts
  • helpful Appendices provide additional, optional information for readers who wish to pursue theoretical concepts in more detail
  • an understanding of algebra and trigonometry is required. Prior knowledge in calculus is not required, but would enhance understanding of advanced topics, such as Fourier transforms
  • back-of-book CD includes Lab Manual, Multisim, MATLAB, and SystemVue files
