Analysis and design of analog and digital communication systems based on Fourier analysis. Topics include linear ssytems and filtering, power and energy spectral density, basic analog modulation techniques, quantization of analog signals, line coding, pulse shaping, and transmitter and receiver design concepts. Applications include AM and FM radio, television, digital communications, and frequency-deivision and time-division multiplexing.
Communication is a major and growing discipline in electrical engineering and impacts every major area of electrical engineering. This course provides the basic concepts for analyzing communication systems including an introduction to spectral analysis, modulation, and multiplexing. These concepts are utilized throughout electrical engineering.
Required for all EE majors; Technical elective for CPE majors
