#### Description

Review of signal theory, Fourier transforms, linear and time-invariant systems; review of probability and random signals; information theory, source entropy, channel capacity; basedband data transmission, modulation, noise in analog systems and digital carrier modulation.

#### Purpose

This course presents analytic concepts in communication systems analysis and design. It is designed for an undergraduate senior or beginning graduate student in electrical engineering. Students should have a mathematical maturity typical of undergraduate curricula in science and engineering, including calculus and circuit analysis.

The teaching approach in this course emphasizes modelling, analysis and design principles used in modern communication technology, including wire, radio and satellite systems. Important areas include, theory, analysis and practical implementation of analog and digital modulation, filtering and detection principles.

#### Requirements

Prerequisites: ELEG306 or permission of instructor

Exams: midterm (25%), final (60%) and homework (15%); closed book; no notes
