ELC-2010 Electronic Communication Systems

This is a comprehensive course in AM, FM, and single-sideband communication systems and an introduction to digital transmission. The course is designed to familiarize students with transmitters, receivers, modems, noise analysis, information theory, pulse modulation, sampling, coding, multiplexing, and other signal processing techniques used in commercial broadcasting and data transmission systems.

Advisory: It is advisable to have completed courses in basic algebra and trigonometry as well as basic electronics including transistors.

Note: This course requires that students use NI Circuit Design Suite software, which is a Windows-based product and will not run on Macs. Students can run this software and other Windows software on a Mac using Apple's Boot Camp technology or third-party virtualization tools like Parallels or VMWare Fusion. These tools make it possible to run Mac OSX and a Windows operating system side by side. This solution will require a Windows license.
