Foundations of Communication Systems
2nd Cycle Studies - Mestrado
Signals and Systems, Transmission of Information
Theoretical-practical classes involving detailed presentation of concepts, principles and relevant mathematical models and resolution of some problems to help the understanding of the concepts. Laboratory classes with analysis and implementation of analog and digital communication systems based on electronic kits, software defined radio platforms and matlab/simulink.
The central objective is a unifying learning process focused on concepts, fundamental principles and
mathematical models supporting the theory of communication systems aiming at creating competencies of analysis, modelling, simulation, design strategies and measurement of essential parameters of communication systems. The course will address bandpass systems with analog carrier modulation and baseband digital transmission systems.
- Introduction to Analog and Digital Communication Systems.
-Transmission systems with amplitude modulation of a carrier.
-Transmission systems with phase and frequency modulation of a carrier.
-Principles of radio receivers.
-Random Processes and noise.
-Noise in analog modulation.
-Baseband digital transmission.
