In this unit students will be introduced to the fundamental principles of communication systems. The unit will focus on the properties of signals and noise, Fourier analysis, linear systems and lossless transmission, linear and exponential modulation techniques, typical communications systems, such as radio broadcasting and transmitters / receivers. Other topics include pulse code modulation, time division multiplexing and frequency division multiplexing. Also included is transmission line theory including distributed circuit analysis, characteristics impedance and sinusoidal waves on transmission lines. The subject will also introduce students to IEEE communications standards an examine global issues an challenges faced by engineers, governments, policy setters and companies/organisations .
