There are hundreds of technologies and protocols used in telecommunications. They run the full gamut from application level to physical level. It is overwhelming to try to keep track of them. Network Design, Second Edition: Management and Technical Perspectives is a broad survey of the major technologies and networking protocols and how they interrelate, integrate, migrate, substitute, and segregate functionality. It presents fundamental issues that managers and engineers should be focused upon when designing a telecommunications strategy and selecting technologies, and bridges the communication gap that often exists between managers and technical staff involved in the design and implementation of networks. For managers, this book provides comprehensive technology overviews, case studies, and tools for decision making, requirements analysis, and technology evaluation. It provides guidelines, templates, checklists, and recommendations for technology selection and configuration, outsourcing, disaster recovery, business continuity, and security. The book cites free information so you can keep abreast of important developments. Engineers benefit from a review of the major technologies and protocols up and down the OSI protocol stack and how they relate to network design strategies. Topics include: Internet standards, protocols, and implementation; client server and distributed networking; value added networking services; disaster recovery and business continuity technologies; legacy IBM mainframe technologies and migration to TCP/IP; and MANs, WANs, and LANs. For engineers wanting to peek under the technology covers, Network Design provides insights into the mathematical underpinnings and theoretical basis for routing, network design, reliability, and performance analysis. This discussion covers star, tree, backbone, mesh, and access networks. The volume also analyzes the commercial tools and approaches used in network design, planning, and management.

Oscillators have traditionally been described in books for specialist needs and as such have suffered from being inaccessible to the practitioner. This book takes a practical approach and provides much-needed insights into the design of oscillators, the servicing of systems heavily dependent upon them and the tailoring of practical oscillators to specific demands. To this end maths and formulae are kept to a minimum and only used where appropriate to an understanding of the theory. Once grasped, the theory of the general oscillator is easily put into practical use in actual oscillators. The final two chapters present a collection of oscillators from which the practising engineer or the hobbyist can obtain useful guidance for many kinds of projects. Irving Gottlieb is a leading author of many books for practising engineers, technicians and students of electronic and electrical engineering.

Analysis and Application of Analog Electronic Circuits to Biomedical Instrumentation, Second Edition helps biomedical engineers understand the basic analog electronic circuits used for signal conditioning in biomedical instruments. It explains the function and design of signal conditioning systems using analog ICs—the circuits that enable ECG, EEG, EMG, ERG, tomographic images, biochemical spectrograms, and other crucial medical applications. This book demonstrates how op amps are the keystone of modern analog signal conditioning system design and illustrates how they can be used to build instrumentation amplifiers, active filters, and many other biomedical instrumentation systems and subsystems. It introduces the mathematical tools used to describe noise and its propagation through linear systems, and it looks at how signal-to-noise ratios can be improved by signal averaging and linear filtering. Features Analyzes the properties of photonic sensors and emitters and the circuits that power them Details the design of instrumentation amplifiers and medical isolation amplifiers Considers the modulation and demodulation of biomedical signals Examines analog power amplifiers, including power op amps and class D (switched) PAs Describes wireless patient monitoring, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication protocols Explores RFID, GPS, and ultrasonic tags and the design of fractal antennas Addresses special analog electronic circuits and systems such as phase-sensitive rectifiers, phase detectors, and IC thermometers By explaining the "building blocks" of biomedical systems, the author illustrates the importance of signal conditioning systems in the devices that gather and monitor patients’ critical medical information. Fully revised and updated, this second edition includes new chapters, a glossary, and end-of-chapter problems. What’s New in This Edition Updated and revised material throughout the book A chapter on the applications, circuits, and characteristics of power amplifiers A chapter on wireless patient monitoring using UHF telemetry A chapter on RFID tags, GPS tags, and ultrasonic tags A glossary to help you decode the acronyms and terms used in biomedical electronics, physiology, and biochemistry New end-of-chapter problems and examples

When PCs and peripherals began showing up with USB ports in the late 1990s, many predicted that legacy serial (COM) ports would soon be obsolete. The predictions were wrong. While most standard peripherals now use USB, serial ports are the interface of choice for devices that require simple programming, long cables, operation in harsh environments, or basic networking capabilities. Serial ports are more versatile then ever due to developments such as USB virtual COM ports, the .NET SerialPort class, enhanced microcontroller USARTs, and new wireless interfaces. Serial Port Complete Second Edition is a completely revised and updated guide to programming and interfacing to COM ports, USB virtual COM ports, and serial ports in embedded systems. Author Jan Axelson shows how to: § Access COM ports using the SerialPort class in Microsoft’s .NET Framework. § Program embedded systems for serial-port communications. § Design and program USB devices accessed as virtual COM ports. § Upgrade RS-232 designs to USB with no changes to host software or device firmware. § Design circuits for electrically harsh environments. § Create serial networks of embedded systems and PCs. § Use serial ports in wireless links. Example code is provided for PCs and embedded systems in both Basic and C/C#. The author maintains a website with articles, program code, and other links of interest to developers of serial-port applications (janaxelson.com).
