Boatowner’s Illustrated Electrical Handbook
Keep your boat’s electrical systems running and reliable
“Boatowner’s Illustrated Electrical Handbook is perfect for learning how your boat’s electrical system and much of its equipment works, and it will be an invaluable guide when adding equipment as well. This book needs to be in every boater’s library as a ready reference on how to make effective repairs and modifications that comply with ABYC standards.”?Ed Sherman, Senior Instructor and Curriculum Designer, American Boat and Yacht Council
“A definitive technical book that is easy to read. Buy this book and throw out the rest.”?Motorboat & Yachting
Whether you take to the sea under power or sail, bounce around the bay in your runabout, or cross oceans in your cruiser, you’ll find everything you need to maintain, repair, and upgrade your boat’s DC and AC electrical systems with this comprehensive and fully illustrated guide.
Tackle onboard electrical projects and learn how to:
Meet ABYC standards for both DC and AC wiring
Install solar- and wind-power systems
Add electrical components
Prevent corrosion of your electrical system . . . and more

Multi-Standard CMOS Wireless Receivers: Analysis and Design
Multi-Standard CMOS Wireless Receivers: Analysis and Design is the first book on the subject of multi-standard wireless receivers. It covers both the analysis and design aspects of CMOS radio receivers with primary focus on receivers for mobile terminals. The subject of multi-standard data converter design for base stations is also covered. The book is the first to detail a complete analysis of a multi-standard receiver chain from the antenna to the data converter establishing the design specifications of all blocks in both the radio and mixed-signal parts. The specifications are conveniently tabulated throughout the book and span a level of details from the noise figure and linearity requirements of RF blocks down to such circuit details as, e.g., DC gain, settling behavior, noise and matching requirements of amplifiers (OTAs) in the data converter. Multi-Standard CMOS Wireless Receivers: Analysis and Design serves as a reference for RF IC and mixed-signal designers, wireless receiver system designers, design managers and project leaders in industry, particularly those in the wireless semiconductor industry.
Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communications
The only book on integrated circuits for optical communications that fully covers High-Speed IOs, PLLs, CDRs, and transceiver design including optical communication
The increasing demand for high-speed transport of data has revitalized optical communications, leading to extensive work on high-speed device and circuit design. With the proliferation of the Internet and the rise in the speed of microprocessors and memories, the transport of data continues to be the bottleneck, motivating work on faster communication channels.
Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communications, Second Edition deals with the design of high-speed integrated circuits for optical communication transceivers.
Building upon a detailed understanding of optical devices, the book describes the analysis and design of critical building blocks, such as transimpedance and limiting amplifiers, laser drivers, phase-locked loops, oscillators, clock and data recovery circuits, and multiplexers.
