Overview


Main description

Finally -- a practical guide that explains the numerous RF engineering concepts and technical terms and shows you the reader how they link together into a system design or specific application. Dozens of practical examples and case studies help turn theory into ready-to-implement knowledge. Critical issues such as link budgets, modulation, antennas, filters, receivers, transmitters, communication sites, system design, and technology- specific design guidelines are expertly detailed. By providing the framework for putting together a network design and detailing the real-world factors that need to be considered, this book gives engineers the tools they need to succeed in the rapidly emerging wireless work environment.

Back cover copy

A ``nuts and bolts'' guide to working with wireless! Here is all the pertinent and practical information that an RF engineer needs to know and understand in day-to-day wireless work. This book clearly explains RF engineering concepts and technical terms and shows how they link together into a system design or specific application. Dozens of practical examples and case studies help turn theory into ready-to-implement knowledge. This hands-on reference covers such critical issues as: radio engineering topics--radio systems, technology platforms, spread spectrum, conventional radio systems, paging, AMPS, TACS, CDMA, IS-136, GSM, and CDPD; link budget components--various propagation models, terrain, diffraction, multipath, delay spread, coverage, ERP, link budget design guidelines; modulation formats--information bandwidth, AM, ASK, sideband, FM, pre- and de-emphasis , FSK, MSK, GMSK, PM, BPSK, QPSK, DQPSK, I&O diagram; antennas--types, base station antennas, performance criteria; filters--types and classifications, filter performance criteria, control theory, filter selection; receivers--AM, FM, PM, receiver system blocks, diversity reception, performance criteria; transmitters--transmitter building blocks, types and classes, modulation, isolation; communication sites--macrocells, microcells, installation, path clearance; system design--RF system design procedures, methodology, technology decision; technology-specific design guidelines--AMPS, CDMA, IS-136, GSM, sample system designs for both cellular and PCS. By providing the framework for putting together a network design and detailing the real-world factors that need to be considered, this book gives directors, managers and RF engineers the tools they will need to succeed in the rapidly emerging wireless work environment, all in one convenient source.
