This course aims to familiarize students with the building main blocks of telecommunication systems including both transmitter and receiver sides. Students will learn to use signal processing techniques such as Fourier series analysis, and Fourier transforms in data transmission. They will also develop skills to optimize modern communication systems to performance metrics such as reliability (bit error rate), spectral efficiency (data rate), power efficiency, etc.
This course covers the basics of communication theory including signal analysis and transmission, amplitude modulation (AM), quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), frequency modulation (FM), phase modulatıon (PM), phase-locked loops, sampling, quantization, pulse transmission, digital data transmission, and recent digital communication technologies.
