Digital Communications 4 (ELEE10006)
Electronics and Electronic Engineering
Normal Year Taken
Delivery Session Year
Students should be familiar with the sampling theorem, be able to analyse baseband communication systems in the absence of noise, discuss the concepts of noise, power spectral densities, and probability, and recall basic error correction schemes, including parity check bits, and simple block codes.
The aim of this course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of how information theory relates to the design of digital communications systems and to provide the knowledge and skills to perform design calculations on these systems. Students will use standard mathematical methods to model and analyse digital communication systems and predict performance metrics such as received SNR and expected bit error ratio.
