Combines the theory and practical - with simulation tools for the understanding and design of Ultra Wide Band (UWB) communication networks. UWB is a revolutionary technology - recently receiving FCC approval. The UWB standard has several advantages including high transmission rates and the ability to carry signals while accounting for solid matter interference. Provides a theoretical analysis of the fundamentals of UWB radio communications supported by practical examples developed using computer simulations using MATLAB. UWB devices can be used for a variety of communications applications involving the transmission of very high data rates over short distances without suffering the effects of multi-path interference. UWB communication devices could be used to wirelessly distribute services such as phone, cable, and computer networking throughout a building or home. These devices could also be utilized by police, fire, and rescue personnel to provide covert, secure communications devices. The book presents the theoretical analysis of fundamental principles of Ultra Wide Band (UWB) radio communications supported by practical examples developed using computer simulation. The simulation codes are provided in the form of user-customizable MATLAB) functions which are included in the book. The examples are inserted within the theoretical treatise in order to help and guide the reader in the understanding of analytical principles. The book covers issues related to both UWB signal transmission and UWB network organization. In particular, the topics covered by the book are: principles of UWB radio transmission and modulation (PPM, PAM and DS-UWB for Impulse Radio, OFDM for the multi-band approach), UWB channel modeling, receiver structures, Multi User Interference modeling, Localization, Network organization: advanced Medium Access Control and routing design strategies.

The Acclaimed RF Microelectronics Best-Seller, Expanded and Updated for the Newest Architectures, Circuits, and Devices Wireless communication has become almost as ubiquitous as electricity, but RF design continues to challenge engineers and researchers. In the 15 years since the first edition of this classic text, the demand for higher performance has led to an explosive growth of RF design techniques. In RF Microelectronics, Second Edition, Behzad Razavi systematically teaches the fundamentals as well as the state-of-the-art developments in the analysis and design of RF circuits and transceivers. Razavi has written the second edition to reflect today’s RF microelectronics, covering key topics in far greater detail. At nearly three times the length of the first edition, the second edition is an indispensable tome for both students and practicing engineers. With his lucid prose, Razavi now Offers a stronger tutorial focus along with hundreds of examples and problems Teaches design as well as analysis with the aid of step-by-step design procedures and a chapter dedicated to the design of a dual-band WiFi transceiver Describes new design paradigms and analysis techniques for circuits such as low-noise amplifiers, mixers, oscillators, and frequency dividers This edition’s extensive coverage includes brand new chapters on mixers, passive devices, integer-N synthesizers, and fractional-N synthesizers.

Mit den Fortschritten in der Mikroelektronik wächst auch der Bedarf an VLSI-Realisierungen von digitalen Signalverarbeitungseinheiten. Die zunehmende Komplexität der Signalverarbeitungsverfahren führt insbesondere bei Signalen mit hoher Quellenrate auf Anforderungen, die nur durch spezielle Schaltungsstrukturen erfüllt werden können. Dieses Buch behandelt Schaltungstechniken und Architekturen zur Erzielung hoher Durchsatzraten von Algorithmen der Signalverarbeitung. Neben alternativen Schaltungstechniken zur Realisierung der Basisoperationen, Addition, Multiplikation und Division werden CORDIC-Architekturen zur Implementierung transzendenter Funktionen vorgestellt. Zur Konzeption von Systemen mit Parallelverarbeitung und Pipelining wird ein allgemeines Verfahren zur Abbildung von Signalverarbeitungsalgorithmen auf anwendungsspezifischen Architekturen erläutert. Hierzu werden beispielhaft spezielle Architekturen für Filter, Matrixoperationen und die diskrete Fouriertransformation erörtert. Architekturen programmierbarer digitaler Signalprozessoren sowie beispielhafte zugehörige Implementierungen sind eingeschlossen. Das Buch soll sowohl Studenten und Ingenieure der Elektrotechnik als auch der technischen Informatik mit Architekturkonzepten der digitalen Signalverarbeitung vertraut machen.
