Semester First Semester
Course Description The goal of the course is to make students familiar with concepts of communication and information theory and with their application to the analysis and design of complex telecommunication systems. Moreover, the course provides students with the tools that are needed to understand and apply advanced technologies that are presently used in telecommunication systems. Also, understanding, analyzing and designing optical and radio communication systems is one of the objectives of the course. The first part of the course is finalized to teach students the basics of digital communication as bit rate and symbol rate, bandwidth, filtering of data signals, basics concepts of information theory, modulation and coding. Design of the transmit filter and of the receive filter in practical cases of interest, calculation of the limits of communication in terms of channel capacity, selection of the proper modulation scheme according to the constraints imposed by the system, performance evaluation of modulation and coding schemes are among the goals of the course. The second part of the course is finalized to teach students advanced concepts of digital communication as equalization, predistortion, synchronization, MIMO systems. The goal is to make the student familiar with these concepts and with their application to digital transmitters and receivers of radio and optical communication systems. Design of equalization algorithms in the presence of dispersive channels, predistortion algorithms for memoryless non-linear channels, carrier and timing synchronization systems, MIMO receivers are among the goals of the course. Also, learning the mathematical tools needed to understand how these systems work and how their performance can be analyzed is among the objectives of the course. The goal of using commercial software tools as Simulink and Matlab to encode software for the simulation of communication systems will be achieved by laboratory sessions.
