The only book available that integrates a realistic design approach with a theoretical approach! This outstanding new book focuses on the central theoretical and practical issues involved in modem design. The first half deals with the basic issues of base-band and passband data transmission and contains descriptions of applications to specific digital transmission systems. The second half specifically addresses design issues including timing and carrier recovery, channel characterization, adaptive equalization, and trellis coding. The author uses simulation programs in Matlab and C to help readers:
* Determine the power spectral density of complex data encoding rules
* Simulate the performance of passband data transmission techniques
* Design and assess the performance of carrier recovery systems
* Develop time domain models for a variety of channels
* Design and assess the performance of adaptive equalizers
* Use existing programs as the framework for creating simulation modules
