In this course, students receive an introduction to the principles, performance and applications of communication systems. Students examine analog modulation/demodulation systems (amplitude – AM, DSB & SSB; and angle – PM & FM) and digital modulation/demodulation systems (binary and M-ary) in noise and interference. Sub-topics include filtering, sampling, quantization, encoding and the comparison of coherent & noncoherent detection techniques to improve signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and bit error rate (BER) performance. Special topics and/or problems will be assigned that provide knowledge of how communication systems work from a system engineering viewpoint in real-world environments. Prerequisite(s): A working knowledge of Fourier transforms, linear systems, and probability theory. Basic working knowledge of MATLAB.
