ELEN420 - Communication Systems

 

The course covers statistical communication theory including amplitude, frequency, and pulse code modulation; description of random process by auto-correlation and power spectral density functions, sources and properties of electrical noise and its effect on communication systems, the effects of modulation, detection and filtering on signal information content, and bandwidth and signal-to-noise ratio. Topics include: a review of signals and systems, power spectral density, amplitude modulation, angle modulation, pulse modulation, a review of probability and random variables, and an introduction to digital transmission systems. NOTE: This course requires the student to purchase additional materials that are not covered by the book grant. Please refer to the Course Materials section for additional details.
