4 units – Winter Quarter
Lecture: 3 hours
Project: 3 hours
Prerequisite: EEC 160, EEC 161
Introduction to random process models of modulated signals and noise, and analysis of receiver performance. Analog and digitally modulated signals. Signal-to-noise ratio, probability of error, matched filters. Intersymbol interface, pulse shaping and equalization. Carrier and clock synchronizations.
Expanded Course Description
Students will work in groups of two. The first project will be a comprehensive design project lasting 4 weeks and requiring a detailed report. The other two projects will last 2 weeks.
Engineering Design Statement:
The computer laboratory projects will consist of designing, simulating and evaluating the performance of components of analog and digital communications receivers operating in noise.
