This book presents a broad overview of RF MEMS technology, going from the MEMS devices (mainly BAW and Si MEMS resonators), to basic circuits such as oscillators and finally complete systems such as ultra low-power MEMS-based radios.
As the demand rises for low-power, low-voltage A/D converters, so do the quality-control issues in these devices, whose nano-level variables are difficult to control. This work looks at improving power efficiency and enhancing testing and debugging techniques.
With power consumption now a key design constraint, recent years have seen growing research interest in these networks as an architectural solution for high-speed data transfer. This single-source reference covers some of the most important design techniques.
This book systematically introduces the principle of MIMO systems and signal detection via MIMO channels. Coverage includes symbol detection in MIMO systems, fundamental knowledge of MIMO detection and recent research outcomes on low complexity MIMO detection.
This book examines the latest research, fundamental theories, and key techniques of wireless localization technology and error-controlling techniques. It also presents and discusses the issue of localizability, as well as privacy issues associated with LBS.
This book addresses several well-known and new canonical location discovery problems in WSN, including engineering change-based node addition, design and operation of location discovery infrastructure for mobile users, and various security issues.
This is a practical introduction to MEMS for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It describes sensors, actuators, and microfluidics, and their relationship with MEMS. The book has a tested pedagogical structure and an accessible writing style.
Introduction to Circuit Analysis and Design focuses on the terminal characteristics of circuit inputs and outputs, and explores the role they play in analysis and design. Readers will find in-depth treatment of two-port models, input resistance, output impedance, loading effects and frequency response.
This fresh and pragmatic approach to understanding a subject often clouded by mathematical theory exploits the full suite of tools provided by LabVIEW™, showing how to design, develop, analyze, and visualize intelligent control algorithms quickly and simply.
Implementing Software Defined Radio discusses practical aspects of design configuration and implementation. The work includes discussion of all major SDR design architectures, and it examines the reasons for building such flexible radios.
