The goal of this course is to provide a fundamental knowledge of analog communication systems. By using mathematical tools such as signals & systems and probability concepts, the performance of communication systems will be covered. Course topics will be bolstered with computer simulations of analog communication systems.
Fourier Theory and Communication Signals: Filters, Low-Pass and Band-Pass Signals, Phase and Group Delay, Amplitude Modulation: Double Sideband-Suppressed Carrier, Single-Sideband and Vestigial-Sideband Modulation Methods, Frequency Division Multiplexing, Phase and Frequency Modulation: Phase-Locked Loop, Superheterodyne Receivers, Random Variables and Processes: Power Spectral Density, Transmission of a Random Process Through a Linear Filter, Noise in Analog Modulation.
Having successfully completed this course, students will be able to:
LO-1: Understand Fourier analysis of signals and systems with complex baseband representation of their band-pass versions.
LO-2: Analyze amplitude modulation and angle modulation.
LO-3: Investigate frequency and phase modulation.
LO-4: Treat of noise in communication systems by using the aspects of probability theory and random processes.
LO-5: Understand the channel noise that affects the performance of continuous-wave modulation systems.
