A great deal of modern communications equipment is being converted from analog to digital technology. This timely book explains many of the important concepts related to digital signal processing in easy-to-understand discussions of communications techniques, data transmission, filters, and hardware.
Readers are given practical information on how to apply theory and algorithms to the design of radio receivers and transmitters. Among the areas discussed are analog to digital conversion - with emphasis on noise and distortion performance; manipulation of complex signals - positive and negative frequencies, plus Hilbert transformers; digital filters - guidelines for performance in communications, plus decimation and interpolation; hardware - multiplier accumulators, fast Fourier transform processors, digital signal processors, data flow techniques in equipment, and hardware simulation and testing; and speech processing - linear predictive coding (LPC), code excited linear predictive coding (CELP), and how to digitize speech at low data rates.
Development of algorithms for oscillators, detectors, modulators, automatic gain control circuits, and other devices is clearly explained. Specific algorithms are provided for AM modulation, frequency modulation, FM detection, threshold extension, audio compression, automatic gain control, and squelch circuitry.
Explanations of basic concepts of digital signal processing and data transmission are accompanied by reviews of signal representations, sampling, convolution, and z-transforms. Extensive real-world examples contribute to expertise in many facets of incorporating digital technology into devices.
This hands-on treatment of DSP will help communications engineers upgrade their skills in digital signal processing and make a smooth transition into the design of more advanced systems. It also meets the needs of students who want to bolster their knowledge in communications.
