Digital Video and HDTV Algorithms and Interfaces by Charles Poynton
This is a technically good book about video engineering, but it has two flaws:
1. The writing is many times not very easy to understand, there are many sentences that don't make too much sense to me. I am not a native English speaker, but I have spent last twenty years reading and writing in English.
2. There are terminologies poped up in one place, and there is no explanation for those, many times the author asks you to read in later chapters, for a reader who is not familiar with the material, it is difficult to read and confusing.
Overall, it is a very good book, but you need an introductory book before you can read this book.
Digital Signal Processing in Communications System&hellip by Marvin Frerking
I bought this book a while ago but didn't really read it (it cost me a lot to buy this book). I almost sold this book two years ago but nobody wanted to pick it up. How lucky I was!!! Recently I need to implement algorithms for a wireless Modem, and I need many tricks for such like sin(), cos(), arctan(), 1/x.... and I couldn't found other books talking about how to approximate those functions for real world application until I got this book from the basement, and suddenly I found this is the book that can show me those practical skill in the real world problem!!
This book talks about many wireless systems and subcircuits, and much more useful than other books is that this book show… Read more
Digital Systems Design with VHDL and Synthesis: An&hellip by K. C. Chang
I agree with previous author that this book is not for beginner and the intention of this book is not for beginner. I will recommend that a beginner read other VHDL books and get familiar with VHDL then read "VHDL - Coding and Logic Synthesis with Synopsys" by Weng Fook Lee and then this book if you want to go into logic synthesis.
The weakness of this book is that it is a little verbose and some of the sentences are not clear. Also the typesetting is not as good as other books, but considering all those great content (and thick too) along with a cheap price, it is an excellent book!
