New title for Communication and Information Engineering

Signal processing for RF circuit impairment mitigation
By Xinping Huang, Zhiwen Zhu, Henry Leung.
TK5102.9.H874s, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:

A wireless communication system employs a radio frequency (RF) wave to transmit information bearing signals. In modern digital communication systems, sophisticated modulation techniques are developed to modulate information onto an RF carrier waveform, so as to transmit more information. This new book presents signal processing techniques for reducing impairments of analog and RF circuits in wireless communications systems. Engineers, researchers, and students will find full coverage of the topic, including vector modulators, power amplifiers, vector demodulators, group delay distortion in analog/RF filters, digital beamforming networks, and dual polarization systems. Several applications are discussed, including both single carrier and multi-carrier scenarios. [As taken from Amazon]

Handbook of MEMS for wireless and mobile applications
By Uttamchandani, Deepak.
TK5103.2.H236af, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:
The increasing demand for mobile and wireless sensing necessitates the use of highly integrated technology featuring small size, low weight, high performance and low cost: micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) can meet this need. The Handbook of MEMS for wireless and mobile applications provides a comprehensive overview of radio frequency (RF) MEMS technologies and explores the use of these technologies over a wide range of application areas.

Part one provides an introduction to the use of RF MEMS as an enabling technology for wireless applications. Chapters review RF MEMS technology and applications as a whole before moving on to describe specific technologies for wireless applications including passive components, phase shifters and antennas. Packaging and reliability of RF MEMS is also discussed. Chapters in part two focus on wireless techniques and applications of wireless MEMS including biomedical applications, such as implantable MEMS, intraocular pressure sensors and wireless drug delivery. Further chapters highlight the use of RF MEMS for automotive radar, the monitoring of telecommunications reliability using wireless MEMS and the use of optical MEMS displays in portable electronics.
