This course aims at introducing advanced topics in digital communications and providing students with up-to-date knowledge of the techniques used in modern communication systems and the principles underlying their design.
Topics include bandlimited channels, intersymbol interference and equalization, fading channel characteristics and models, the effect of fading on digital communication system, and the ways of mitigating this effect. The course will also discuss multicarrier communications, spread spectrum techniques and multiple access, with special emphasis on CDMA schemes and multiuser detection. These techniques are widely applied in modern communication systems, e.g. in UMTS/IMT-2000.
The course will be taught completely in English. This is due to the fact that the course is part of of the international Master's program in Wireless Systems. In addition, several international exchange students will follow the course.
