EE431: Communications Theory I


An introduction to analog and digital communication systems and concepts. Fourier spectrum and information content of a signal are defined, characteristics of linear filters are explored and the sampling theorem is developed and applied. Amplitude, frequency, phase and pulse-code modulation techniques are studied in depth. Time and frequency division multiplexing concepts are developed and applied. Signal to noise ratios in analog communication systems are compared and statistical techniques are used for computer error rates in digital communication systems. (3-2-4). Prereq: EE362 or permission of chair. [fall]
