Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: School of Engineering (pre 2015)

Spectra and Fourier techniques. Spectral shaping. Linear (AM, SSB), Exponential (FM, PM), Pulse (PAM, PWM) and Digital modulation schemes (ASK, FSK, PSK, QAM, MSK) and applications. Signal coding (PCM, Delta Modulation, Sigma Delta Modulation, Vocoders). Baseband coding (NRZ, Manchester). Spread spectrum techniques (CDMA, COFDM). Digital television. Communication Standards for Radio, TV, Mobile Radio and Wireless LAN applications.

Learning Outcomes

  • demonstrate an ability to communicate this knowledge in written form;
  • demonstrate a basic knowledge of the full range of modulation techniques and standards used in analogue and digital communication systems which can then be applied to the design of communication systems.
