ELE4606 Communication Systems
Pre-requisite: (ELE2504 and ELE2601) or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GCEN or GDET or METC or MEPR or MENS
Recommended prior or concurrent study: ELE3506 and ELE4605
The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to the specialised techniques and components which are common to both analog and digital communication systems. Topics studied include phase locked loops, noise, modulation methods, electromagnetic propagation, antennas and optical fibre communication. The relevance of these topics is illustrated by reference to existing communication systems such as the telephone network, TV, cellular mobile and microwave radio, radio navigation aids, and satellite communication systems. The course is intended for final year electrical degree students, and assumes some knowledge of electromagnetic fields and Maxwell's equations.
