About this book

Digital Transmission – A Simulation-Aided Introduction with VisSim/Comm is a book in which basic principles of digital communication, mainly pertaining to the physical layer, are emphasized. Nevertheless, these principles can serve as the fundamentals that will help the reader to understand more advanced topics and the associated technology. In this book, each topic is addressed in two different and complementary ways: theoretically and by simulation. The theoretical approach encompasses common subjects covering principles of digital transmission, like notions of probability and stochastic processes, signals and systems, baseband and passband signaling, signal-space representation, spread spectrum, multi-carrier and ultra wideband transmission, carrier and symbol-timing recovery, information theory and error-correcting codes. The simulation approach revisits the same subjects, focusing on the capabilities of the communication system simulation software VisSim/Comm on helping the reader to fulfill the gap between the theory and its practical meaning. The presentation of the theory is made easier with the help of 357 illustrations. A total of 101 simulation files supplied in the accompanying CD support the simulation-oriented approach. A full evaluation version and a viewer-only version of VisSim/Comm are also supplied in the CD.

About the authors

Digital Transmission with VisSim/Comm is a book where principles of digital transmission are emphasized, rather than modern technologies. These principles permit the reader to understand more advanced topics and the associated technology. In this book, each topic is addressed in two different and complimentary ways: theoretically and by simulation. The theoretical approach encompasses common subjects covering the principles of digital transmission, like notions of probability and stochastic processes, baseband and passband signaling, signal-space representation, spread spectrum, carrier and symbol-timing recovery, information theory and channel coding. The simulation approach deals with the same subjects with focus on the capabilities of VisSim/Comm to help the reader to understand the theoretical concepts.

The files supplied in the accompanying CD run through an evaluation version of VisSim/Comm VisSim/Comm, a communication’s systems simulation software.
