Example Courses on Topics Related to Wireless Communications
EE544, Digital Communications
(offered every fall semester)
Introduction to digital communication systems and spread
spectrum communications. Topics include analog message digitization, signal
space representation of digital signals, binary and M-ary signalling methods,
detection of binary and M-ary signals, comparison of digital communication
systems in terms of signal energy and signal bandwidth requirements. The
principal types of spread spectrum systems are analyzed and compared. Application
of spread spectrum to multiple access systems and to secure communication
systems is discussed.
Error Control Coding (offered every third semester)
The theory and practice of error control coding is examined.
The study includes the arithmetic of Galois fields as well
as linear block, cyclic, and connvolutional codes.
Advanced Digital Communications (offered every third semester)
System synchronization, equalization, and fading channels are considered.
Guest lecturer, Dr. Andy Viterbi, speaks with Bob Morrow, Ph.D. Purdue, 1988, and teaches convolutional coding and the forward-backward algorithm to students in EE679 on April 20, 1999.
