Internet of Things, A to Z: Technologies and Applications

Edited by Qusay F. Hassan (2018)

This book offers insight into the ideas, technologies, and applications of the IoT. Experts discuss recent developments in the field and emerging trends. The publication includes examples of innovative applications and real-world case studies.

Balanced Microwave Filters

By Ferran Martín, Lei Zhu, Jiasheng Hong, and Francisco Medina (2018)

Topics covered include selective mode suppression, designs based on distributed and semi-lumped approaches, multilayer technologies, coupled resonators, and metamaterials.

The book is divided into five sections. The first covers the fundamentals of balanced lines, circuits, and networks. The second looks at balanced transmission lines and common-mode filters. The third examines wideband and ultra-wideband balanced bandpass filters. Narrowband and dual-band balanced bandpass filters with intrinsic common-mode suppression are discussed in the fourth section. The last covers other balanced circuits.

The publication is helpful for those working in the field and those studying microwave engineering and wireless communications.

Switch/Router Architectures: Shared-Bus and Shared-Memory Based Systems

By James Aweya (2018)

Delving into the inner workings of router and switch design, the book describes the role switches and routers play in a network and the functional composition of each.

It covers the design of multilayer switches, including the basic concepts and architectures as well as quality-of-service mechanisms and configuration tools.

The book describes the evolution of multilayer switch designs and highlights the major performance issues affecting each one. It discusses implementation complexity and scalability to higher speeds. A comparison of centralized and distributed design is included.

The Solar Generation: Childhood and Adolescence of Terrestrial Photovoltaics

By Philip R. Wolfe (2018)

This book looks at the origins of the sustainable energy technology, tracing its inception following the 1973 oil crisis to the end of the last millennium.

The first part of this three-volume set provides a historical backdrop to the technology and tracks the development of research, markets, prices, applications, and government policies. The second volume features a who’s who of influential people in the industry and profiles key companies and events. The last volume, the reference section, features glossaries, a bibliography, and a comprehensive index.
