ECE-UY 3404 Fundamentals of Communication Theory

4 Credits
The course covers bandpass signal representation and quadrature receivers; noise in communication systems; Digital Modulation Schemes, coherent and noncoherent receivers; coding fundamentals, block and convolutional codes; higher-order modulation schemes, QAM, M-PSK; intersymbol interference and equalization techniques; and carrier and symbol synchronization. Alternate-week computer laboratory projects analyze and design computer packages. The course teaches principles of various modulation and coding techniques and their relative effectiveness under transmission-environments constraints and uses math packages to analyze and simulate communication systems.

Prerequisite(s): ECE-UY 3054  (C- or better) (for Brooklyn Engineering and Abu Dhabi Students) or EENG-SHU 2054 (C- or better) (for Shanghai Students); computer engineering students may register with instructor’s approval Corequisite(s): ECE-UY 2233   (Note: Abu Dhabi students may have this co-requisite waived if they have successfully completed ENGR-AD 195 as a prerequisite)
Note: ABET competencies a, c, e, k.
