On completion of this subject, students should have a good understanding of the modern principles of digital communications.
Topics include source coding, rate distortion and quantisation theory; noisy channels; linear block codes, parity check codes; convolutional codes, the Viterbi algorithm; fundamental limits (entropy; mutual information and Shannon bounds); characterisation of signal waveforms; modulation and demodulation for AWGN channel; modulation schemes, signal constellations, probability of symbol error; digital signalling over band-limited channels; Nyquist criterion, pulse shaping, equalisation.
All concepts are illustrated by examples from engineering practice.
On completing this subject the student should be able to:
1. Qualitatively and quantitatively analyse and evaluate digital communication systems;
2. Use software tools to analyse, design and evaluate digital communication systems.
One written 3-hour examination 70%, 2 laboratory reports (15% each) not exceeding 25 pages.
