Identical Courses: Cellular and Wireless Communications 049001
Basic building blocks of the physical layer of modern digital communication systems. Modulation, coding, equalization and diversity techniques. Signal space and optimum receivers, Nyquist signals including raised-cosine filtering, intersymbol interference and linear equalization, modulation techniques: BPSK, QPSK, MPSK, QAM, BFSK, MFSK, SQPSK and MSK. Results from information theory. Intorudtion to coding: continuous phase modulations-CPBFSK, GMSK and coded CPM.
