Chapter 1Simulation: Backgroundand Overview

Modern communications systems and the devices operating within these systems would not be possible without simulation. The expanded use of digital Signal processing techniques has spawned cell phones and wireless transceivers that offer incredible performance and features at a per-unit cost that puts them within the reach of nearly everyone. However, these low per-unit costs are achieved through mass production of hundreds of thousands or even millions of units from a single design. The design of a new cell phone or wireless modem for a PDA is a very complex and expensive affair. Because of the complexity in such devices, it is not practical to breadboard prototypes for testing until after the design ...
