Digital Techniques For Wideband Receivers (electromagnetics And Radar)
This newly updated, second edition of Digital Techniques for Wideband Receivers is a current, comprehensive design guide for your digital processing work with today’s complex receiver systems. Brand new material brings you up-to-date with the latest information on wideband electronic warfare receivers, the ADC testing procedure, frequency channelization and decoding schemes, and the operation of monobit receivers. The book shows you how to effectively evaluate ADCs, offers insight on building electronic warfare receivers, and describes zero crossing techniques that are critical to new receiver design. From fundamental concepts and procedures to recent technology advances in digital receivers, you get practical solutions to all your demanding wideband receiver problems. This hands-on reference is packed with 1,103 equations and 315 illustrations that support key topics covered throughout the bookAs communication bandwidth increases, many of the communications hardware considerations and digital signal processing approaches primarily designed for EW receivers are becoming equally applicable to communication receivers. This is an up-to-date survey of practical design techniques for receiver systems engineers that includes problems, solutions, design procedures, real-life examples, and Matlab programs. This book contains a comprehensive description of digital processing applicable to wideband receivers. It explains the requirements of wideband digital RF receivers, provides numerous solutions to receiver problems, and gives an overview of future trends in receiver development. The text is intended for electronic warfare engineers, receiver designers, communications engineers, and those working in digital hardware processing. It features 753 equations, and 192 figures.
