Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of signal theory: Fourier transform, Laplace transform; signal convolution and correlation; signal energy and power. Signals through linear systems: I/O relationship.
Basic probability theory: random variables, probability density function, probability cumulative function, moments, characteristic function.
Electrotechnics: Ohm law, Kirchoff principles, impedance, one port linear equivalent circuit.
Target skills and knowledge: Basic knowledge of modern communications systems. Students will be able to evaluate the performance of a telecommunication systems with real simplified models.
Examination methods: Written and oral proof.
Assessment criteria: The ability of the candidate to solve real problems related to part of a telecommunication system will be evaluated. It is importatnt that the student be able to use the correct methodologies to solve the problem.
The evaluation of the candidate will be performed through a written and oral proof where the discussion includes also the methodologies used to solve the problems assigned in the written proof.
Course unit contents: Basic knowledge of baseband and passband digital transmission systems.
Signal sources. Continuous and discrete time signals. Random variables and random processes.
Characterization of communications media and of their components. Transmission system models. Performance of digital modulation. Digital transmission of analog signals (PCM).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Students will be able to solve simple problems in the area of telecommunication systems and will be able to analyse the reslts obtained. They will be able to discuss with other persons on telecommunication systems. Also, they will acquire authonomous capacity to analyze in deep future telecommunciation systems.
Teaching is based on lectures and exercise done in classroom. Homeworks are also given to the students followed, roughly one week later, by a dsicussion in classroom related to the proposed solutions by the students.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lecture notes and exercise will be available during lectures
