On completion of this subject students should understand the use of signals and systems and random process theory in the modelling and analysis of analog and baseband digital communication systems.
Topics include: revision of signals and systems; linear time-invariant channel models; amplitude modulation (AM) and related modulation formats; frequency modulations (FM);revision of random processes and noise; noise analyses of AM and FM in terms of signal-to-nosie ratios (SNR); nyquist sampling; sampling of random processes; quantisation; pulse-code modulation (PCM); waveform coding; matched filtering and probabilities of bit error for addictive white gaussian noise (AWGN) channels; intersymbol interference (ISI); SNR comparison of PCM and analog modulation formats.
All concepts are illustrated by examples from wireline, wireless and optical communications.
On completing this subject the student should be able to:
