Welcome to Digital Communications
This is an introductory course on aspects of modern digital communications systems. Its main purpose is to serve as a first course in Digital Communications in the basic curricula of the Communications System Engineering program and the Wireless Systems Engineering program at KTH. The course gives a broad introduction to the principles of digital communications, introducing the fundamental principles and methods used in current communications systems. Problem-solving and design based on mathematical modelling are integral parts of digital communication systems engineering. The emphasis of the course is therefore on mathematical modelling in communication system design and analysis.
The course content includes fundamental topics such as modulation and demodulation, synchronization and noncoherent communication, information theory and channel coding.
The course is a prerequisite for the course EQ2410 Advanced Digital Communications.
