Digital Communications: Design for the Real World introduces readers to the fundamentals of digital communications through an applications-driven approach.
Devised specifically to serve as a first stage text for undergraduate students, this textbook + CD package relates theory to real-world products and emphasizes the design choices facing professional communications engineers, thereby bringing this exciting subject vividly to life. Students encountering communications topics for the first time, practising engineers and managers will all appreciate the stimulating and motivational treatment of the subject.
