Book Name: Introduction to Digital Mobile Communication
Author: Yoshihiko Akaiwa
Publication: Willy - India
This book is intended to introduce the digital mobile communication technologies with an emphasis on digital transmission methods. Digitization is a technical trend in telecommunications as well as in other fields; for example, digital audio systems (compact disk) and digital control of machines.
A digital approach enjoys higher accuracy and stability of the system over an analog system. Driving forces for digitization are VLSI (very large-scale integrated) circuits and computers, which make it feasible to implement circuits required for the digitization of system.
A certain part of this book is bound to become obsolete in near future, when more advanced technologies for digital mobile communications are developed as a result of the on-going active research in the field. However, this book may be helpful to mobile radio engineers as it comprehensively describes digital mobile communication at this time.
