|Subject Overview:||This subject provides an in-depth treatment of the main concepts and techniques used in the analysis and design of digital communication systems. In particular, students will study topics including: source coding; data compression; entropy; digital modulation and demodulation, with and without bandwidth constraints; signal constellations in signal vector space; M-ary signalling and probability of error calculations for AWGN channels; Nyquist’s criterion, pulse shaping and equalisation; sequence detection; Viterbi’s algorithm; mutual information and channel capacity; BSC and erasure channels; Shannon bounds; channel coding; erasure coding; block codes; convolutional / trellis codes; error-correction; and decoding methods. This material will be complemented by examples such as the compact disc, satellite communication systems, mobile communication networks, and both hardware and software based laboratories. |
