Synopsis : This course introduces the students the basic principles of communication system. The fundamental concepts of analogue modulation in particular amplitude and frequency modulations will be strongly emphasized. Topics include types of modulated waveforms, transmitter and receiver structures. The two most significant limitations on the performance of a communications system; bandwidth and noise will be discussed. The concept of sampling, quantization and line coding techniques in rendering an information signal to be compatible with a digital system are explained prior to the study of coded pulse modulation and pulse code modulation (PCM). The waveforms and spectral analysis of bandpass digital modulations are introduced. The system performance in terms of bit error rate (BER) will also be covered. Finally, multiplexing, a method to utilize the communication resource efficiently is studied where two techniques will be explored; time- division and frequency-division multiplexing.
