This course explores synchronization techniques in modern digital receivers. Synchronization techniques, from initial detection of a signal to symbol timing recovery, is studied in this course. Students will learn practical synchronization techniques through experimentation and hands-on development. Students develop software to solve synchronization problems relevant to modern wireless communication standards. A semester project involving demodulation and synchronization is required.
