9780131130494: Electronic Communications for Technicians

For Electronic Communications courses requiring a comprehensive text with an emphasis on troubleshooting and the practical application of communications principles and concepts.

  

Written by a technician for technicians, this text fills the gap between communications texts that are either highly mathematical (suitable for engineers) or technically weak (not enough detail for technical students). Using an algebra-based approach that does NOT sacrifice depth of coverage, it uses plain language and an abundance of examples and case studies to explore real circuits, systems, and their troubleshooting.

From the Back Cover:

Every facet of our lives today is touched by modern electronics. From credit card use to air traffic control, we are very dependent on the strength and reliability of electronic systems. Although it certainly is not necessary to understand these systems in order to use them, for an electronics technician who works to build, maintain, and repair such systems a thorough working knowledge is absolutely essential.

Electronic Communications for Technicians, written by a technician, presents the world of electronic communications in an approach that is exciting and fun, without sacrificing depth or clarity. For example, every attempt is made to build on the student's already broad base of everyday experience, with real-world examples and case studies throughout. Real circuits and systems are emphasized, with their troubleshooting and necessary safety procedures. The level of mathematics has been moderated so that only basic algebra skills are needed to work most of the problems in the text. Included with this text is a CD-ROM that brings many of the circuits to life using Electronics Workbench®.

The following topics are developed in careful detail:

  • Introduction to RF Communications
  • Signal Analysis
  • Amplitude Modulation
  • AM Transmitters
  • Single-Sideband Systems
  • Systems for Frequency Generation
  • FM Transmission
  • FM Reception
  • Television
  • Transmisison Lines
  • AntennasElectromagnetic Wave Propagation
  • Microwave Communication Systems
  • Introduction to Data Communications
  • The Global Positioning System
  • Fiber Optic and Laser Technology
