ECET 30400 - Introduction To Communication Systems
Credit Hours: 4.0.
The theory and techniques of sending information (voice, music, data, etc.) from one location to another is studied from a systems point of view. This includes signal analysis, various modulation techniques, transmitters, receivers, video, impedance matching networks and filters through the VHF frequency spectrum. In addition, wireless communication, digital communication and special topics of current interest are introduced. This course also incorporates a student-based communication design and analysis laboratory.
After completing this course, the student should be able to:
1. Derive and apply the Fourier series to various periodic waveshapes.
2. Layout printed circuit boards for high frequency analog and/or mixed-signal applications.
3. Evaluate and characterize the effects of noise on communication circuits and systems.
4. Analyze and design methods of analog signal generation.
5. Demonstrate the concepts and applications of amplitude, frequency and phase modulation techniques.
6. Describe the operation of various receiver and transmitter circuits and systems.
7. Describe and apply the concepts of EMC, EMI and RFI to circuit design and evaluation.
8. Apply various impedance matching and filtering networks to various systems.
9. Describe the fundamentals of cell structures and call processing in cellular communications.
10. Describe the fundamentals of digital communications, such as basic codes, circuits and modulation techniques.
