EELE 445 - Telecommunications Systems

Spring 2015 (Last update: May 1)


Course Description

Introduction to analog and digital communication systems with lab. Topics include signals in communications; noise characterizations; bandwidth considerations; probability of error; analog and digital modulation; frequency domain analysis; matched filter applications. Experiments involve modulation, demodulation, A/Ds, sampling theory, and aliasing. (Syllabus)
