Communications Receivers: DPS, Software Radios, and Design, 3rd Edition

Customer Reviews:

Subtitle misleading

By YS "yongsubk" - September 6, 2001

I needed a book on software radio and so I gladly bought this book when I came across it. I expected a lot of detailed information about DSP and software radio.It's a thick book: 700 plus pages. However, DSP related contents only add up to 50 pages or so. Detailed treatment of software radio cannot be found anywhere. Even the itemized index has only one instance of 'software radio'. This book is mostly on (analog) circuit design issues for amps, mixers, oscillators, PLLs, etc.I strongly doubt the authors' intention of using the subtitle 'DSP, Software Radios, and Design'. If you want to know more about software radio, you wouldn't get it from this book.

This Book Rocks!

By James E. Mackenzie - May 22, 2011

To the guy who is disappointed in the DSP content: The book's synopsis clearly indicates that it contains SOME DSP material with this statement: "updates on all crucial DSP elements", but that does not mean it's a DSP reference volume. If you want DSP design instruction, try "Digital Signal Processing Technology" or something similar. If you want SDR material, also seek out the appropriately-focused material. This book is meant to be a general design guide and, as such, I think you have done it quite a disservice by unfairly rating it so low, based on only a single aspect of it's otherwise excellent coverage of communications receiver topologies. It's like you had a temper tantrum.

Anyway, the content in this book is exactly what I was looking for! This book will be the first step I will use in my own designs. It breaks down each building block of superhet receivers in a practical manner with only the required mathematics to support them.

se ve bien

el libro se ve bastante interesante, aborda los temas de los PLL, que utilizan para generar frecuencias bastante altas, estos dispositivos son utilizados en los sistemas celulares.
