DSP for Communication Systems

EC ENGR 830.70

This course emphasizes the DSP technology used in modern communication systems.  


What you can learn.

  • Compute engineering functions with modern DSP techniques
  • Master and visualize DSP methods using MATLAB
  • Analyze communication systems using multirate filters, I-Q sampling, sigma-delta modulators and more
  • Understand the transition from analog hardware use to digital methods

About this course:

This course addresses how to implement engineering functions in a cost-effective way by using computational means instead of analog hardware. Instruction emphasizes communication systems, where traditional applications, such as modulation/demodulation, channelization, channel equalization, synchronization, and frequency synthesis, are now being implemented with new digital signal processing techniques to achieve high performance. The course analyzes these techniques, including multirate filters, I-Q sampling, sigma-delta modulators, and conversion between I-Q and real signals. The course focuses on real-world systems using modern DSP methods and illustrates all concepts with MATLAB demonstrations that are distributed to participants.
