The Complete "Tool Kit for the Hottest Area in RF/Wireless Design! Short-range wirelesscommunications over distances of less than 100 metersis the most rapidly growing segment of RF/wireless engineering. Alan Bensky is an internationally recognized expert in short-range wireless, and this new edition of his bestselling book is completely revised to cover the latest developments in this fast moving field. You'll find coverage of such cutting-edge topics as: - architectural trends in RF/wireless integrated circuits - compatibility and conflict issues between different short-range wireless systems - "Zigbee and related new IEEE standards for short-range communications - latest U.S. and international regulatory standards for spread spectrum, ultra wideband, and other advanced communications techniques Alan Bensky also thoroughly discusses the fundamentals of radio signal propagation, communications protocols and modulation methods, information theory, antennas and transmission lines, receivers, transmitters, radio system design, and how to successfully implement a short-range wireless system. All material has been carefully updated and revised to make it as technically up-to-the-minute as possible. The accompanying CD includes Mathcad worksheets to greatly simplify common design tasks and calculations. You'll also find coverage of Bluetooth, "Wi-Fi and related 802.11 variants, digital modulation methods, and other essential information for planning and designing short-range wireless hardware and networks. This new edition will, like the first edition, be an invaluable reference for engineers and technical professionals who design, support, market, and maintain short-range wireless communications systems.

Alan Bensky, MScEE, an electronics engineering consultant with over 25 years of experience in analog and digital design, management, and marketing. Specializing in wireless circuits and systems, Bensky has carried out projects for varied military and consumer applications. He is the author of Short-range Wireless Communication, Second Edition, published by Elsevier, 2004, and has written several articles in international and local publications. He has taught courses and gives lectures on radio engineering topics. Bensky is a senior member of IEEE.
