Providing an introduction to the fundamentals of body area communications, this book covers the key topics of channel modeling, modulation and demodulation, and performance evaluation

A systematic introduction to body area networks (BAN), this book focuses on three major parts: channel modeling, modulation/demodulation communications performance, and electromagnetic compatibility considerations. The content is logically structured to lead readers from an introductory level through to in-depth and more advanced topics.

  • Provides a concise introduction to this emerging topic based on classroom-tested materials
  • Details the latest IEEE 802.15.6 standard activities
  • Moves from very basic physics, to useful mathematic models, and then to practical considerations
  • Covers not only EM physics and communications, but also biological applications
  • Topics approached include: link budget, bit error rate performance, RAKE and diversity reception; SAR analysis for human safety evaluation; and modeling of electromagnetic interference to implanted cardiac pacemakers
  • Provides Matlab and Fortran programs for download from the Companion Website
