Book Overview: Digital Techniques for Wideband Receivers

The updated third edition of Digital Techniques for Wideband Receivers discusses how digital-signal-processing (DSP) can be applied to the design of electronic-warfare (EW) receivers. In this book, readers will find information concerning the simulation and implementation of receiver techniques. New topics are covered that were not discussed in the second edition, which was published back in 2004. The authors wrote the book with the goal of emphasizing techniques rather than theoretical talk. For those involved with EW receivers, this book may be a valuable resource to you.

Electronic-warfare (EW) receivers are covered in Chapters 2, 17, and 18. The book provides a brief introduction to EW itself, as well as an explanation of the fundamental differences between EW receivers and communication receivers. Fourier transforms are discussed in Chapters 3 and 4, as the concepts in these chapters are important foundations of wideband receiver processing techniques. Chapters 5 and 6 discuss actual receiver hardware, such as amplifiers and analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). Furthermore, receiver sensitivity is explained, as well as various types of detection schemes. Additional topics in the book include phase measurements and zero crossings, frequency channelization, high-resolution spectrum estimation, the detection of frequency-modulated (FM) signals, and much more.
