Digital communications is an elective course often taken as the second semester of an analog/digital sequence or as a follow-on course to communication systems. This new text offers the most complete, up-to-date coverage available on the principles of digital communications, focusing on core principles and relating theory to practice.Numerous examples, worked out in detail, have been included to help the reader develop an intuitive grasp of the theory. The text also incorporates MATLAB-based computer experiments throughout, as well as themed examples and a large amount of quality homework problems.Because the book covers a broad range of topics in digital communications, it should satisfy a variety of backgrounds and interests.
The book was OK but left out core parts of digital communication systems such as carrier and timing synchronization for modulated signals, no mention of S curves or timing error detectors. There was mention on phase synchronization/timing for an unmodulated carrier but that section was very poorly written. Also the book failed to prove that a matched filter maximized SNR(not that it really matters).
