Due to the unprecedented growth in wireless applications over the past decade, development of low-cost solutions for RF and microwave communication systems has become of great importance. This practical new book is the first comprehensive treatment of lumped elements, which are playing a critical role in the development of the circuits that make these cost-effective systems possible. The books offers you an in-depth understanding of the different types of RF and microwave circuit elements, including inductors, capacitors, resistors, transformers, via holes, airbridges, and crossovers.
This cutting-edge, first-of-its-kind resource gives you a comprehensive understanding of the simulation and evaluation methods used for today's mobile communication systems. Written by two highly regarded experts in the field, the book focuses on the performance of both the physical and protocol layer transmission scheme. It defines and presents several invaluable simulation tools written in MATLAB® code, along with clear examples that explain their use.
This edition features a wealth of new material on urban warfare, including a computer simulation of EW architecture alternatives for land-based forces based on urban constraints. It also includes an expanded section on time-hopped spread spectrum communications, more details on modern communication system technologies such as CDMA and OFDM, and an in-depth discussion on sources of urban noise. This practical resource is focused on showing the reader how to design and build jammers specifically targeted at spread spectrum, anti-jam communications. Moreover, it gives assistance in evaluating the expected performance of jamming systems against modern communications systems, and discover the best waveform to use to counter communication systems designed to be effective in jamming environments. While mathematical derivations in general are avoided, the book presents error rate performance equations for most modern digital anti-jam communication systems
This newly revised edition of an Artech House bestseller provides you with an up-to-date introduction to third generation (3G) mobile communication system principles, concepts, and applications. The book clearly presents the basics of UMTS systems in one comprehensive volume, without bogging you down with advanced mathematics. The second edition includes an even more thorough treatment of potential 3G applications and descriptions of new, emerging technologies such as 3G System Release number 5, HSDPA, and Multimedia Broadcast/Multicast Service (MBMS). It also features discussions on both 3GPP and 3GPP2 evolution paths, the specification process, and future 3G upgrades.
Written by leading authority Ramjee Prasad, this timely new work offers a complete understanding of OFDM technology and applications in wireless communications systems, placing emphasis on wireless LANs and PANs. OFDM is a key technology for beyond 3G communications, promising robust, high capacity, high speed wireless broadband multimedia networks. In this practical resource, established and new technologies are explained clearly and comprehensively, from OFDM basics to a detailed account of a new technique, hybrid OFDM CDMA slow frequency hopping.
A thorough update to the Artech House classic Modern Radar Systems Analysis, this reference is a comprehensive and cohesive introduction to radar systems design and performance estimation. It offers you the knowledge you need to specify, evaluate, or apply radar technology in civilian or military systems. The book presents accurate detection range equations that let you realistically estimate radar performance in a variety of practical situations. With its clear, easy-to-understand language, you quickly learn the tradeoffs between choice of wavelength and radar performance and see the inherent advantages and limitations associated with each radar band. You find modeling procedures to help you analyze enemy systems or evaluate radar integrated into new weapon systems. The book covers ECM and ECCM for both surveillance and tracking to help you estimate the effects of active and passive ECM, select hardware/software for reconnaissance or jamming, and plan the operation of EW systems. As radar systems evolve, this book provides the equations needed to calculate and evaluate the performance of the latest advances in radar technology.
This newly revised edition offers a comprehensive and current treatment of the subject and includes expanded derivations and problem sets, helping to make the material even more accessible and easier to master.
This is an extensively revised and updated new edition of the best-selling Mobile Antenna Systems Handbook. Comprehensive, authoritative and practical, it provides the information you need to understand the relationship between the elements involved in antenna systems design for mobile communications. You get sound advice in choosing the appropriate antenna for any given requirement - including antennas for ITS, access to the latest modeling formulas for macro, micro and pico cell propagation, and guidance on the latest RF safety standards and measurement techniques.
Space-time adaptive processing (STAP) is an exciting technology for advanced radar systems that allows for significant performance enhancements over conventional approaches. Based on a time-tested course taught in industry, government and academia, this second edition reviews basic STAP concepts and methods, placing emphasis on implementation in real-world systems. It addresses the needs of radar engineers who are seeking to apply effective STAP techniques to their systems, and serves as an excellent reference for non-radar specialists with an interest in the signal processing applications of STAP. Engineers find the analysis tools they need to assess the impact of STAP on a variety of important radar applications. A toolkit of STAP algorithms and implementation techniques allows practitioners the flexibility of adapting the best methods to their application. In addition, this second edition adds brand new coverage on “STAP on Transmit” and “Knowledge-Aided STAP (KA-STAP).
