ELEC4300 - Engineering Communications Systems
This course serves as an introductory course in analog and digital communication systems. Topics covered include amplitude, frequency, pulse and pulse-code modulation and signal-to-noise ratios for various modulation schemes and sampling, quantization and coding. The laboratory would augment the course materials. Prerequisite: MATH3100, Probability and Statistics for Engineers.
- Analyze and determine the spectral content of periodic and non-periodic signals by applying Fourier analysis.
- Describe and analyze the mathematical techniques of generation, transmission and reception of amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation (FM) and phase modulation (PM) signals.
- Evaluate the performance levels (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) of AM, FM and PM systems in the presence of additive white noise.
- Convert analog signals to digital format using sampling and quantization techniques.
- Describe and analyze the mathematical techniques of generation, transmission and reception of various digital modulation schemes such as FSK, PSK, BPSK and QAM.
- Analyze the probability and random processes applied to analog and digital communication systems.
- Utilize emulation hardware to apply theoretical principles. Updated Fall 2017
(6) An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
