Course objectiveThe aim is to give an in-depth understanding of the topics below to the students; - Receiver design in AWGN, - Digital modulation techniques with coherent and noncoherent detection, - Channel coding; block and convolutional coding , - Spread spectrum transmission; frequency hopping and direct-sequence SS systems and applications.
Learning outcomes
  1. A student completing the course successfully will L.O.1. understand and solve problems related to digital modulations,
  2. L.O.2. be able to compare relative (dis)advantages of different modulation techniques,
  3. L.O.3. understand and solve problems related to channel coding,
  4. L.O.4. be able to design communication systems combining various modulation and coding techniques
  5. L.O.5. understand and solve problems related to spread spectrum transmission and apply his knowledge in the domains including multiple access (CDMA), ranging, AJ.
