This course introduces students to the modern technology involved with commercial wireless communications systems such as digital cellular 3G, 4G, 5G, wireless local area networks(WLAN) and other communication systems. Various multiple access methods and signal formats are considered and analyzed in detail. Hardware, software and signal processing implementations of system components are presented and analyzed using Matlab in a software based lab environment. Modulation and demodulation architectures are introduced and modeled using computer-based tools. The adaptive signal processing systems at the heart of modern digital wireless systems are a significant and unique part of this course. Prerequisite(s): An undergraduate degree in electrical engineering or the equivalent. Experience with MATLAB will be helpful but is not required.
