The existing "analogue telecommunications systems" are increasingly replaced by digital telecommunications systems. In such "digital telecommunication system" one can find, regardless of the specific application (eg. ADSL, GSM, UMTS, DAB, DVB, GPS, ...), a number of identical basic principles. In this course, we will elaborate on these basic principles (in particular, we will discuss the main concepts at the level of the physical layer in the OSI model).
(noise, source coding, channel coding, multiplexing, spreading, modulation)
In the lab we will extend this topics using Software Defined Radio hardware and LabView Communications.
