Electronic Communications: Modulation and Transmission

Updated and revised, this is the second edition of a practical text that offers coverage of all currently used forms of modulation and recovery of electronic signals with an emphasis on their applications. The second edition offers students a solid foundation in general communication basics, as well as a current examination of specific branches of the field - AM, FM, and SSB; radar, satellite, and microwave communication; cellular communication and fibre optics. Coverage assumes a knowledge of algebra and trigonometry, plus an understanding of basic transistor theory and the fundamentals of microcircuits.
