The consumer electronics market has never been as awash with new consumer products as it has over the last couple of years. The devices that have emerged on the scene have led to major changes in the way consumers listen to music, access the Internet, communicate, watch videos, play games, take photos, operate their automobiles-even live.
Digital electronics has led to these leaps in product development, enabling easier exchange of media, cheaper and more reliable products, and convenient services.
This handbook is a much-needed, comprehensive engineering guide to the dynamic world of today's digital consumer electronics.
It provides complete details on key enabling technologies, standards, delivery and reception systems, products, appliances and networking systems.
Each chapter follows a logical progression from a general overview of each device, to market dynamics, to the core technologies and components that make up that particular product. The book thoroughly covers all of the key digital consumer product categories: digital TV, digital audio, mobile communications devices, gaming consoles, DVD players, PCs and peripherals, display devices, digital imaging devices, web terminals and pads, PDAs and other handhelds, screenphones/videophones, telematics devices, eBooks and readers, and many other current and future products.
