Advanced Digital Communications
Available in 2013
|Callaghan Campus||Semester 1|
Previously offered in 2012, 2011
The course introduces topics and concepts in the areas of communications, coding and information theory. The course will introduce topics on information and coding theory applied to telecommunication systems. The course will then discuss coding techniques. The course will cover important techniques such as OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) and spread spectrum used in broadband communication systems. It will also discuss some advanced topics on wireless communication.
|Objectives||Main objectives of this course are:
i. Provide an introduction to information theory and it applications.
ii. Develop understanding of coding techniques to used for digital communications.
iii. Develop understanding of advanced multiplexing techniques such as OFDM and, CDMA and , WCDMA techniques.
iv. Understand basics of MIMO digital communication systems.
v. Understanding of advanced digital communication techniques to mitigate transmission channel problems to support broadband communication systems.
|Content||1. Coding: entropy, mutual information.
2. Channel coding: Shannon channel capacity theorem, and applications.
3. Advanced multiplexing: Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), Spread Spectrum techniques.
4. Communication Channels: MIMO communication and advanced topics.
