Antennas, Satellites, and the Internet by David Blockley
The Internet is built on the technology of radio waves and electronics. Antennas, satellites, and the internet all rely on electronic engineering to function.
The internet is a global communications network that relies on radio waves and electronics for its existence. It is made up of a physical medium that consists of cables, antennas, satellites, and computers.
Electronics engineering is an essential part of the modern world because it has revolutionized our daily lives in ways we never could have imagined before.
Engineering Antennas by Wayne H. Brouwer
Antennas are used for radio communications, radar, and satellite. They are a key component of electronic communications. Wayne H. Brouwer has been studying antennas for more than forty years and has published many books on the subject.
In this book, Wayne H. Brouwer provides a detailed overview of the basics of antenna design to help readers develop their own antennas in an efficient way. He also includes a chapter on the design principles that apply to different types of antennas such as dipoles and monopoles to help readers understand how they function and what they can be used for.
Zigbee Wireless Networks – Engineers Manual by Snelson & Phillips
Zigbee is a wireless mesh network standard that has been designed to enable the creation of connected objects. It is being developed by the ZigBee Alliance, a non-profit consortium of over 250 companies in the electronics industry.
Zigbee networks can be installed in homes, offices, and factories. They are typically used for lighting control, security monitoring, and remote monitoring of industrial processes. They are also useful for connecting sensors to collect data.
In this book we will learn about how to design wireless networks for home automation and industrial applications with Zigbee technology.
RF Design Cookbook – a Practical Guide for RF Designers by R.J. Francis et al.
The RF Design Cookbook is a practical guide for RF designers. It is the first book to provide a step-by-step approach to RF design. It provides an understanding of how radio frequency works and why it is important in today’s world.
The book offers a practical approach to the field of radio frequency design, from basic principles to advanced applications. The authors are experienced engineers who have contributed greatly in this field and share their knowledge with readers in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide for RF designers.
Radio Frequency Design Cookbook provides readers with necessary information on how radio waves work, what they can do with them, and why they are important in today’s world. Readers will be able to learn about the basics of radio frequency design as well as advanced applications using this practical guide that is easy to follow and implement into their own designs.
Cognitive Radio – Understanding Wireless Networks and Devices that Learn Their Environment by Walter A. Brown et al.
Cognitive radio networks are radio networks that are able to dynamically change their operating parameters in order to maximize their utilization of available spectrum resources.
Cognitive radio networks can provide significant benefits for wireless communication systems. They can increase the capacity, coverage, and network resilience of wireless networks.
The cognitive radio network design is based on a few key principles:
-Bandwidth allocation in the physical layer should be dynamic,
-The physical layer should not rely on any centralized coordination or control, and
-The physical layer should be able to adapt to changes in its environment.
