Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of signals and systems and transmission.
Target skills and knowledge: From the basic concepts of Fundamentals of Communications course we illustrate problems, principles and techniques in modern digital transmissions. The aim is to give tools for evaluating performance, simulate and design modern digital transmission systems.
Examination methods: Four homeworks will be assigned, which need the use of Matlab, and a final exam at the end of the course.
Assessment criteria: Evaluation is a based on homeworks and final exam.
Course unit contents: Signal and system analysis: baseband and passband (baseband equivalent model) digital transmission systems, Wiener filter and linear prediction, spectral estimation methods. Adaptive transversal filters: LMS and RLS algorithms. Radio link: baseband and discrete time equivalent models, random models, simulation models. Transmission over dispersive channels: intersymbol interference (ISI), Nyquist criterion for the absence of ISI, performance evaluation in the presence of ISI. Equalization: linear and non linear (cancelation based). Optimum data detection in dispersive channels: Viterbi and forward-backward algorithms. Synchronization: timing and carrier phase recovery, many practical methods. Multicarrier systems (OFDM): architecture, orthogonality conditions, performance and efficient implementation.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures. Use of Matlab as a tool to design e simulate communication systems.
