Featuring an equal balance of theory and practical application, this new book is the first to examine the use of electro-optic architectures and high-resolution encoding techniques that directly digitize wideband signals in a digital receiver. It explains new symmetrical number system (SNS) signal processing techniques you can easily apply to designs using symmetrical folding waveforms, providing you a high-performance framework for getting optimum results from such systems. You are presented with a comprehensive review of digital radio frequency memories, including amplitude and phase-sampling designs, allowing you to apply these techniques to a new inverse synthetic aperture radar counter-targeting processor. What's more, you get a detailed description of various sampling methods - including undersampling, coherent sampling, oversampling, and non-uniform sampling - that can be used to quantify difficult receiver performance problems - such as jitter, ambiguity resolution, inband quantization noise, and skirting. With this handy source, you can solve problems related to: High-resolution digital antennas using mode-locked lasers and electro-optics; Wideband undersampling receiver design using currently configured hardware; High resolution phase sampled interferometer antenna systems for wideband direction finding; High-resolution over-sampling of VHF signals. Emphasizing GPS, satellite, electronic warfare, radar, and ultra-wideband radar receivers, this book is essential for digital receiver, signal converter, and digital antenna design engineers and others interested in the application of electro-optics and superconductivity to the signal conversion problem. Plus, you get up-to-date information on field programmable gate array techniques (FPGA), analog-to-digital conversion (ADC), and sigma-delta modulators and superconductor ADCs.
