Digital Communication Receivers: Synchronization, Channel Estimation, and Signal Processing (Wiley Series in Telecommunications and Signal Processing) (Volume 2)
Digital Communication Receivers Synchronization, Channel Estimation, and Signal Processing Digital Communication Receivers offers a complete treatment on the theoretical and practical aspects of synchronization and channel estimation from the standpoint of digital signal processing. The focus on these increasingly important topics, the systematic approach to algorithm development, and the linked algorithm-architecture methodology in digital receiver design are unique features of this book. The material is structured according to different classes of transmission channels. In Part C, baseband transmission over wire or optical fiber is addressed. Part D covers passband transmission over satellite or terrestrial wireless channels. Part E deals with transmission over fading channels. Designed for the practicing communication engineer and the graduate student, the book places considerable emphasis on helpful examples, summaries, illustrations, and bibliographies. Contents include: * Basic material * Baseband communications * Passband transmission * Receiver structure for PAM signals * Synthesis of synchronization algorithms * Performance analysis of synchronizers * Bit error degradation caused by random tracking errors * Frequency estimation * Timing adjustment by interpolation * DSP system implementation * Characterization, modeling, and simulation of linear fading channels * Detection and parameter synchronization on fading channels * Receiver structures for fading channels * Parameter synchronization for flat fading channels * Parameter synchronization for selective fading channels
Comprehesive treatment of digital receiver design
By A Customer - October 28, 1998
Floyd Gardner has written a comprehensive review in the IEEE Communications Magazine, September 1998, Vol.36 No.)on two recent books on the subject. (one being the book discussed here)Excerpts "These books are massive, authoritative expositions of synchronization;their authors are long-time researchers in the field. Heretofore there has been no book, to my knowledge that provides a comprehensive up-to-date account of sync.of data signals-until now""Both books are directed at advanced graduate students, seasoned practicioners, or active researchers"(About the book' Digital Communication receiver') "(But) this book is without peer for someone who wants to probe into the underlying foundations of data signal reception, or to cope with difficult fading channels" "
Very practical and advanced textbook
By Abhijit Patait - September 10, 2001
This is an extremely useful book for any Digital Communication System designer or engineers who wish to develop digital transmitters and (especially) receivers for a given system. Covers all aspects, including recent developments and classic algorithms used for synchronization of digital communication systems. Phase synchronization, timing offset estimation, and frequency offset synchronization are treated in detail. A particularly interesting section about effect (degradation) due to non-synchronized receiver is given. I could not quantitative and intuitive treatment of this topic anywhere else. However, this book is recommended only to those who understand the basic communication theory very well.
Comprehensive and practical treatment on synchronization
By Tung-Sheng Lin - December 30, 1997
The purpose of this book, along with its companion (Synchronization in Digital Communications vol.1, published in 1991), is quite ambitious: a comprehensive coverage on the theory of synchronization in digital communications. Compared with its companion, the treatment presented in this book is quite practical and technical, so the audience may be very limited -- only for communication system engineers and students doing researches on sync theory. The valuable part of this book is the treatment on sync problems over the fading channels, which only can be found sporadically in journal or conference papers. The introductory chapter on the necessary background is quite concise but informative. It is highly recommended for people who want to know more details on the design of digital communications.
