This is a revised and updated edition of the field's classic, best-selling introduction. With remarkable clarity, Dr. Bernard Sklar introduces every digital communication technology at the heart of today's wireless and Internet revolutions, providing a unified structure and context for understanding them -- all without sacrificing mathematical precision. Throughout, Sklar helps students understand the big picture and delve into the details of current modulation, coding, and signal processing techniques. He traces signals and key processing steps from the information source through transmitter, channel, receiver, and information sink. Digital Communications, Third Edition begins by introducing the fundamentals of signals, spectra, formatting, and baseband transmission. Next, Sklar presents practical coverage of trellis-coded modulation, Reed-Solomon codes, synchronization, spread spectrum solutions, and much more. Throughout, he offers numeric examples, step-by-step implementation guidance, and block diagrams that place key concepts and techniques in clear context. Coverage includes: Signals and spectra, including signal classification, spectral density, transmission, and bandwidth Formatting, baseband modulation, and baseband demodulation/detection Bandpass modulation and demodulation/detection Communications link analysis and system link budgets Channel coding: waveform, block, convolutional, and Reed-Solomon codes Advanced turbo coding and Low-Density Parity Check (LDPC) techniques Managing modulation and coding tradeoffs Receiver and network synchronization Multiplexing and multiple access Spread spectrum overview and techniques Source coding: amplitude quantizing, differential PCM, adaptive prediction, digital data, and more Fading channels: challenges, characterization, and mitigations The essentials of OFDM and MIMO technology Long Term Evolution (LTE) Wireless, Software Defined Radio, 5G, and other advances
Globally considered as one of the key technologies in the field of wireless communications, cognitive radio has the capability to solve the issues related to radio spectrum scarcity with the help of dynamic spectrum allocation.

The primary objective of the book is to review the current state of the art of the most relevant artificial intelligence techniques applied to the different issues that arise in the smart grid development.
This book deals with some emerging semiconductor devices and their applications in terms of electronic circuits. The basic concept plays a key role in development of any new electronic devices and circuits. The implementation of complex integrated circuits becomes easier with understanding of basic concepts of solid-state devices and its circuit behaviour. The book covers the latest trends in development of advanced electronic devices and applications for undergraduate, graduate and post graduate level courses. It combines the right blend of theory and practice to present a simplified and methodical way to develop researchers' understanding of the clarity between theoretical, practical and simulated results in the analysis of solid-state devices, circuit characteristics and other important issues based on their applications. The book also covers the broad applications of electronic devices in biomedical and low power portable smart IOT systems. This book is well organized into 13 chapters. Chapters 1 to 4 cover design of low power FET devices compatible to technology scaling trends meeting required performance enhancement in terms of power, delay and speed. Chapter 5 and 6 are focused on analogue application of CMOS technology. Chapter 7 describes power MOSFET design with advance materials for lowest possible on-resistance resulting into enhance performance. Chapter 8 deals with biomedical application of advance electronic devices introducing new materials and structure. Chapter 9 introduces a neuromorphic model and real-time simulation for the study of biological neuron model in the human body on circuit level. Chapter 10 and 11 presents the applications of sensors growing over a wide range of sensing targets along with advance sensing technology for human-computer interaction. Chapter 12 and 13 describe optoelectronic devices like photodetectors, optical sensors and solar cells etc.
This book follows a logical concept building approach rather than only formula based, as offered by other books. The objective has been to structure a complete examination-oriented reference book covering the fundamental aspects of theory at a glance before proceeding to their relevant questions. The latest questions (2017 and 2018) from IES with their complete explanations have been given at the end of the text to impart a valuable insight into problem-solving approach.
The study of Analog and Digital electronics is essential for students pursuing degrees in electrical, electronics, computer science, or information technology. Analog and Digital electronics are found in a broad range of applications within these disciplines, from analog circuit design to digital circuit design and analysis. This book deals with the theory and practices of Analog and Digital electronics. It starts with basics of electronics and goes on to discuss special types of Diodes, BJT and FET transistors, Amplifiers, and finally ends up with the coverage of Oscillators and Power in Digital circuits. This book strictly follows most of the syllabus of analog and digital electronics without sacrificing the basic principles and depth of the subject.
With energy resources becoming scarce and costly, and electrical energy being the most sought after form of energy, the designers of electrical systems are faced with the challenge of guaranteeing energy efficiency, quality and scheduling to the satisfaction of the corporate customers. This demands that the electrical systems designers to be more versatile and more effective managers of energy resources. This data handbook is intended to be used as design assistance to the beginners in the field of Electrical Systems design and provides them an easy access to the relevant data required for their design without having to waste their time and energy in searching for the required data to be used in the design problem. This design data handbook is not intended for specialists in the field, but rather for the students of Electrical Engineering who are just entering the field of electrical systems design. This handbook also does not show the student how to be a designer, but presents in a concise manner the basic reference data to perform the design functions. This handbook can be permitted to be used inside the examination hall as a reference handbook.
