Intended learning outcomes
To provide fundamental knowledge about electronic communication
After passing the course you should be able to
- Explain important concepts and terminology within the communication field
- Describe the basic components in a communication system
- Analyse signals in the domain of time and frequency
- Explain the difference between digital and analogue signals
- Describe the function of protocols for Local Area Network (LAN) communication
- Prepare a LAN for TCP/IP communication
- Calculate the data rate in a data channel
- Apply the theory about coding and modulation in a communication system
- Describe in what way damping and interference influence the signal in a transmission media
- Describe the appearance of electromagnetic waves and perform a link budget calculation
Course main content
- Signals in the domain of time and frequency
- Fourier series and analysis of the square wave signal.
- Influence on the signal:
network for limitation of bandwidth, damping, sampling and PCM converting
- Analogue modulation: amplitude-, frequency- and phase modulation.
- Methods for digital modulation: ASK,FSK,PSK,BPSK,QPSK,QAM.
- Data transmission: Bandwidth, media of transmission.
- Data rate versus modulation rate and bandwidth versus pulse width.
- Transmission systems
- Antennas and wave propagation
- Applications: Wired and wireless systems. (noise, requirement of bandwidth, error detecting and correcting codes)
- Fundamentals of data communication, standards and the OSI-model
- Local Area Network: Ethernet and network devices
Good knowledge in mathematics, electric circuits, and electronics.
