FEKT-BKSYAcad. year: 2015/2016
Students first become familiar with architecture of common analog and digital communication systems (block scheme, basic functions). Then, the building blocks operation and methods of signal processing (source coding, encryption, channel coding modulation, synchronization, etc.) are described. At the end the students obtain an overview of recent communication system types and their particular representatives.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The graduate is able (1) describe architecture of common analog and digital communication systems, (2) explain basic building block functions, (3) apply some algorithms of signal processing.(4) and orientate oneself in recently used communication systems.
