Course Outline:

 

This is an introductory course in communication systems, and its objective is to provide a solid foundation in the areas of analog and digital information transmission techniques. The necessary prerequisites are fundamentals of signals and systems, and probability theory. The following subjects will be covered in the course:

1. Introduction (2h)
        a) A model for communication systems.
        b) Analog and digital systems.

2. Review of signals and systems (4h)
        a) Time and frequency domains.
        b) Hilbert transform and complex envelope representation of signals.

3. Review of probability and random signals (4h)

4. Analog modulation (5h)
        a) AM, DSB-SC, SSB, VSB, FDM.
        b) generation, synchronous and envelope detection.
        c) FM: generation and detection.

5. Analog modulation with noise (5h).

6. Digital transmission of analog signals (5h)
        a) Sampling of signals and Time Domain Multiplexing (TDM).
        b) Pulse Code Modulation (PCM).
        c) Delta modulation.

7. Digital transmission through bandlimited channels (3h)
        a) Intersymbol interference and Nyquist's criterion.
        b) Signal design.

8. Digital modulation (9h)
        a) Signal spaces.
        b) Optimal receiver in Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN).
        c) PSK, QAM, FSK modulation schemes.
        d) Receiver structures.
