Title: Signals and systems using MATLAB
Author:  Chaparro, Luis F.
Call number:  TK5102.9.C462
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
This new textbook in Signals and Systems provides a pedagogically-rich approach to what can oftentimes be a mathematically ‘dry’ subject. Chaparro introduces both continuous and discrete time systems, then covers each separately in depth. Careful explanations of each concept are paired with a large number of step by step worked examples. With features like historical notes, highlighted ‘common mistakes,’ and applications in controls, communications, and signal processing, Chaparro helps students appreciate the usefulness of the techniques described in the book.

  Title:  Digital and analog fiber optic communications for CATV and FTTx applications
Author:  Brillant, Avigdor
Call number:  TK5103.592.O68B857
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
This book is intended to provide a step-by-step guide to all design aspects and tradeoffs from theory to application for fiber-optics transceiver electronics. Presenting a compendium of information in a structured way, this book enables the engineer to develop a methodical design approach, a deep understanding of specifications parameters and the reasons behind them, as well as their effects and consequences on system performance, which are essential for proper component design. Further, a fundamental understanding of RF, digital circuit design, and linear and nonlinear phenomena is important in order to achieve the desired performance levels. Becoming familiar with solid-state devices and passives used to build optical receivers and transmitters is also important so one can effectively overcome design limitations.

The book is organized into six main sections covering the following subjects: a top level overview; optics, semiconductors, and passives; RF concepts; an introduction to CATV modems and transmitters; digital transceivers’ performance, evaluation, and concepts; and integration and testing. Copublished with Wiley Interscience. [As taken from book cover]
