ECET 27400 - Wireless Communications
Credit Hours: 3.00.
The theory and techniques of wirelessly sending information (voice, music, data) from one location to another is studies from a systems point of view. This includes a signal analysis, modulation techniques, transmitters, receivers, low noise amplifiers, and filters in the RF frequency spectrum. In addition, special topics of current interest are introduced. This course incorporated a student-based communication design and analysis laboratory.
1. Perform power calculations, such as dB, dBm, dBuV.
2. Describe, identify and apply Fourier concepts communication signals and systems, such as wave shapes, signal mixing, carrier waves.
3. Evaluate, describe and calculate the effects of noise on communication circuits and systems.
4. Demonstrate the concepts and applications of amplitude, frequency, and phase modulation techniques.
5. Describe and compare the operation of various receiver and transmitter blocks and systems.
6. Describe and apply the concepts of EMC, EMI and RFI to RF components, circuits and systems.
7. Describe and apply the fundamentals of cellular communication, such as frequency reuse, spread spectrum techniques and network technologies.
8. Describe and apply the fundamentals of digital communications, such as coding, bandwidth and modulation techniques.
9. Demonstrate use of RF laboratory equipment including the spectrum analyzer and RF generator.
