The goal The students will be introduced with the fundamental principles and concepts of passband communications and transmission techniques, including the spread spectrum techniques and systems.
The outcome Students are enabled to: - understand basic concepts of analog and digital passband transmission systems - quality criteria and limits, narrowband and spread spectrum systems, - use software tools to simulate transmission systems and analyze implementation aspects, to repeat and verify simple experiments, - model, analyze, understand design and develop passband transmission systems and elements.
