View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This book covers the theory and practice of spectrum and network measurements in electronic systems. Intended for readers who have a background in electrical engineering and use spectrum or network analyzers to characterize electronic signals or systems, this classic volume successfully consolidates the pertinent theory into one comprehensive treatment of frequency domain measurements. Witte's thorough coverage of critical concepts, such as Fourier analysis, transmission lines, intermodulation distortion, signal-to-noise ratio and S-parameters enables the reader to understand the basic theory of signals and systems, relate it to measured results, and apply it when creating new designs.

From the Author:

Enough Theory is provided so that the reader can understand how a particular measurement is made, what the possible sources of error are and the significance of the results. The reader will probably find many familiar topics throughout the book since electrical engineers have been exposed to many of these concepts. However, the usual exposure involves multiple textbooks, perhaps encountered throughout multiple courses. Usually these sources of information are not oriented toward actual measurements.

From the Back Cover:

Robert A. Witte's comprehensive reference manual evaluates the theory of spectrum and network measurements in the 0 to 500 MHz frequency range and relates to real, on-the-job practice in a way readers are sure to understand. Numerical examples and figures help readers test their understanding of the material.
Coverage includes the latest digital signal processing techniques (FFT analyzers and averaging) as well as common measurement applications (modulation, distortion, noise, transmission, and reflection measurements).
Content Highlights:
*Chapter 1 introduces spectrum and network measurements.

*Chapter 2 covers the often misunderstood concept of decibels.

*Chapter 3 summarizes the Fourier Theory — the theoretical basis for spectrum analysis.

*Chapters 4 and 5 present the two main types of spectrum analyzers (FFT analyzers and swept analyzers).

*Chapters 6 through 9 explore several important measurement applications such as those mentioned above.

*Chapters 11 and 12 examine transmission lines and measurement connection techniques.

*Chapter 13 introduces two-port measurement connection theory — the basis for network analysis.

*Chapters 14 through 16 discuss network analyzers and their use in making transmission and reflection measurements.

*Chapter 17 concludes with a discussion of instrument performance and specifications.
