This course presents an introduction to analog and digital communication systems. The main topics are: a review of the Fourier transform; representations of bandpass signals; random signals in communications, including stationarity, ergodicity, correlation, power spectra and noise; amplitude and frequency modulation; frequency division multiplexing; baseband digital communication; time division multiplexing; and an introduction to basic digital modulation schemes, such as BPSK, FSK and QPSK.
Probability theory and linear system courses are the required prerequisites for this course. You will also be expected to be able to program in MATLAB.
