Date of Publication c2012
Publisher Pearson Education

The Acclaimed RF Microelectronics Best-Seller, Expanded and Updated for the Newest Architectures, Circuits, and Devices Wireless communication has become almost as ubiquitous as electricity, but RF design continues to challenge engineers and researchers. In the 15 years since the first edition of this classic text, the demand for higher performance has led to an explosive growth of RF design techniques. In RF Microelectronics, Second Edition, Behzad Razavi systematically teaches the fundamentals as well as the state-of-the-art developments in the analysis and design of RF circuits and transceivers. Razavi has written the second edition to reflect today’s RF microelectronics, covering key topics in far greater detail. At nearly three times the length of the first edition, the second edition is an indispensable tome for both students and practicing engineers. With his lucid prose, Razavi now *Offers a stronger tutorial focus along with hundreds of examples and problems*Teaches design as well as analysis with the aid of step-by-step design procedures and a chapter dedicated to the design of a dual-band WiFi transceiver*Describes new design paradigms and analysis techniques for circuits such as low-noise amplifiers, mixers, oscillators, and frequency dividers This edition’s extensive coverage includes brand new chapters on mixers, passive devices, integer-N synthesizers, and fractional-N synthesizers. Razavi’s teachings culminate in a new chapter that begins with WiFi’s radio specifications and, step by step, designs the transceiver at the transistor level. Coverage includes *Core RF principles, including noise and nonlinearity, with ties to analog design, microwave theory, and communication systems *An intuitive treatment of modulation theory and wireless standards from the standpoint of the RF IC designer*Transceiver architectures such as heterodyne, sliding-IF, directconversion, image-reject, and low-IF topologies.* Low-noise amplifiers, including cascode common-gate and commonsource topologies, noise-cancelling schemes, and reactance-cancelling configurations*Passive and active mixers, including their gain and noise analysis and new mixer topologies *Voltage-controlled oscillators, phase noise mechanisms, and various VCO topologies dealing with noisepower-tuning trade-offs*All-new coverage of passive devices, such as integrated inductors, MOS varactors, and transformers*A chapter on the analysis and design of phase-locked loops with emphasis on low phase noise and low spur levels*Two chapters on integer-N and fractional-N synthesizers, including the design of frequency dividers*Power amplifier principles and circuit topologies along with transmitter architectures, such as polar modulation and outphasing.

  • Part One explains the different methodologies between RF and digital circuit design and covers voltage and power transportation, impedance matching in narrow-band case and wide-band case, gain of a raw device, measurement, and grounding. It also goes over equipotentiality and current coupling on ground surface, as well as layout and packaging, manufacturability of product design, and radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC);
  • TPart Two includes content on the main parameters and system analysis in RF circuit design, the fundamentals of differential pair and common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR), Balun, and system-on-a-chip (SOC);
  • Part Three covers low-noise amplifier (LNA), power amplifier (PA), voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), mixers, and tunable filters.

Electromagnetic transients in power systems, 2nd ed.

Author Pritindra Chowdhuri
Place of Publication New Delhi
Date of Publication 2004
Publisher PHI Learning

This book is suitable for courses in power system transients offered to undergraduate students of electrical engineering, and for postgraduate students specializing in power engineering. It would also be useful to research scholars and practising power engineers. The protection of electrical systems against electromagnetic transients caused by lightning and switching surges is especially difficult because of the unpredictability of the transients and the complexity of their interaction with the electrical system. To make the electrical systems reliable, it is a must to understand the basic theories of the generation and propagation of electromagnetic transients and the principles of protection against these transients. This book provides comprehensive coverage of these theories and principles in their state-of-the-art form. It includes many important topics, such as powersystem grounding, lightning-induced voltage on power lines and the effects of transients on lowvoltage systems. The book also discusses dynamic overvoltages that strongly influence the design of protection against transient overvoltages. This book offers many worked examples to illustrate the various topics discussed. Many of them are drawn from the author’s own personal experience while working in the industry. The text also includes several chapter-end problems to test students’ ability to comprehend the concepts.

Speech and audio signal processing : processing and perception of speech and music, 2nd ed.

Authors Ben Gold, Nelson Morgan, Dan Ellis with contributions from Hervel Bourlard … [et al.]
Place of Publication Hoboken, N.J.
Date of Publication c2011
Publisher Wiley

 

When Speech and Audio Signal Processing published in 1999, it stood out from its competition in its breadth of coverage and its accessible, intutiont-based style. This book was aimed at individual students and engineers excited about the broad span of audio processing and curious to understand the available techniques. Since then, with the advent of the iPod in 2001, the field of digital audio and music has exploded, leading to a much greater interest in the technical aspects of audio processing.

This Second Edition will update and revise the original book to augment it with new material describing both the enabling technologies of digital music distribution (most significantly the MP3) and a range of exciting new research areas in automatic music content processing (such as automatic transcription, music similarity, etc.) that have emerged in the past five years, driven by the digital music revolution.

New chapter topics include:

  • Psychoacoustic Audio Coding, describing MP3 and related audio coding schemes based on psychoacoustic masking of quantization noise;
  • Music Transcription, including automatically deriving notes, beats, and chords from music signals;
  • Music Information Retrieval, primarily focusing on audio-based genre classification, artist/style identification, and similarity estimation;
  • SAudio Source Separation, including multi-microphone beamforming, blind source separation, and the perception-inspired techniques usually referred to as Computational Auditory Scene Analysis (CASA).
