About this book


Suitable for advanced undergraduate students of electronic and electrical engineering, this text provides a comprehensive review of the fundamental theory for the transverse electromagnetic mode (TEM) on transmission lines, with emphasis on communications applications. The coverage includes transient performance of relevance for digital systems as well as the more traditional steady-state sinusoidal performance. Both time-domain and frequency-domain measurements are considered. Interconnections in digital systems are considered from a transmission-line viewpoint and an analysis is given for the crosstalk problem for coupled lines. For the case of sinusoidal excitation the theory for a wide range of matching systems is given, ranging from simple stub tuners to multi-section transformers and tapers. There is particular emphasis on the effect of errors on system performance. Computer program listings are provided for the design of matching systems and the study of the effects of errors. These Turbo Pascal programs are available separately on diskette.
