Modem Theory: An Introduction to Telecommunications

On the middle of any smooth conversation process is the modem, connecting the knowledge resource to the verbal exchange channel. this primary path within the mathematical conception of modem layout introduces the idea of electronic modulation and coding that underpins the layout of electronic telecommunications structures. an in depth therapy of center matters is equipped, together with baseband and passband modulation and demodulation, equalization, and series estimation.

RF and Digital Signal Processing for Software-Defined Radio: A Multi-Standard Multi-Mode Approach

Software-defined radio (SDR) is the most popular quarter of RF/wireless layout, and this identify describes SDR ideas, conception, and layout rules from the viewpoint of the sign processing (both on transmission and reception) played via a SDR process. After an introductory evaluation of crucial SDR ideas, this publication examines waveform production, analog sign processing, electronic sign processing, info conversion, phase-locked loops, SDR algorithms, and SDR layout.

2 Statistical Properties Various methods describing the properties of a (time-invariant) properties of a signal are well-established and frequently used. These measures can be applied to both, the timedomain signal block as well as the spectrum. While the definitions below use x(i) as input signal, it could be substituted by X(k, n), by a series of feature values v(n) or by any other signal of interest. Theoretically, the statistical properties presented below require a signal of infinite length, however, in practical applications they can be assumed to be sufficiently accurate if the block is long enough.

22. See Appendix B for derivations. A typical visualization of an audio signal that combines time and frequency components is the spectrogram as shown in Fig. 10. An STFT is calculated for each (overlapping) block of sample data; the resulting STFTs are then plotted in a pseudo-three-dimensional image in which (the magnitude of) each STFT is represented by a column and each bin is darkened according to its level. 1 Frequency Reassignment: Instantaneous Frequency Frequency reassignment is a method to virtually improve the spectral resolution by mapping the frequency data to coordinates closer to its "true" coordinates.

1). 2 shows the spectral skewness for an example signal. During signal pauses the spectral skewness drops since the spectral magnitudes are similar, while at positions with high magnitudes at the fundamental frequency the magnitude spectrum is significantly skewed. The spectral skewness increases, for example, in the region between 12 s and 15 s due to the strong decrease of the higher harmonics compared to the lower harmonics. 22) —1s\fl) The kurtosis is a measure of "non-Gaussianity" of the PDF; more specifically, it indicates the flatness (and peakiness, respectively) of the input values' distribution compared to the Gaussian distribution.
