COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS

ELE3CMN

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will be introduced to the fundamental principles of communication systems. The subject will focus on the properties of signals and noise, Fourier analysis, linear systems and lossless transmission, modulation techniques, typical communications systems, such as radio broadcasting and transmitters/receivers. Other topics include error correction code, time division multiplexing and frequency division multiplexing. The subject will also introduce students to IEEE communications standards and the state-of-the-art communication systems, and challenges faced by engineers, governments, policy setters and companies/organisations
