SYNOPSIS:

 

This course is a study of the practical aspects transmitters and receivers, with an emphasis on the receivers, mixers, IF amplifiers and detectors. Essentially, the topics will cover: Studies noise, information and bandwidth, modulation and demodulation, transmitters and receivers, wave propagation, antennas and transmission lines. Broad band communication systems, microwave, terrestrial and satellite, fiber optics, multiplexing and associated hardware.  Hands-on experience with an integrated world-wide communication system including transmission and reception on a wide range of frequencies and modulation techniques. Interface to computer control and data decoding is also applied. Emphasis will also be on antennae, waveguides, televisions and satellite systems.
