The Communications sequence consists of two three unit lecture courses (EE421, EE422) and a one unit laboratory course (EE423). EE421 is offered each fall. EE422 and EE423 are offered in the spring semester.
E E 421. Communication Systems I
(3-0) Cr. 3. Prereq: 324, credit or registration in 322. Frequency domain
analysis. Spectral filtering. Linear modulation: signals, receivers, transmitters.
Angle modulation systems. Sampling theorem and sampling practice.
Frequency division multiplex. Calculation of signal-to-noise ratios. System
comparisons. Nonmajor graduate credit.
E E 422. Communication Systems II
(3-0) Cr. 3. Prereq: 421 and enrollment in 423. Pulse modulation systems. Noise
analysis. Quantization and pulse-code modulation. Time division multiplex.
Information theory, coding. Data transmission: spectral shaping, transmission
impairments, error rates. Comparison and evaluation of modulation schemes for
data transmission. Nonmajor graduate credit.
E E 423. Communication Systems Laboratory
(0-3) Cr. 1. Prereq: 421, enrollment in 422. Construction and evaluation of
modulators, demodulators, modems, and other components for analog and
digital communications. Design and evaluate baseband communications. Noise
measurement. Design and construction of a communication circuit. Nonmajor
graduate credit. The laboratory is located in Coover 3113.
