The electronic communications industry is an essential part of the modern world. It provides two way communications for both voice and data services as well as radio and television broadcasts. This course introduces the building blocks and the principles on which typical electronic communications systems operate. It examines the nature of signals in both the time and frequency domain and considers how information signals may be transmitted using modulated carrier signals. Radio frequency transmission lines, radio wave propagation and basic antennas are included. The course also covers fibre-optic data communication systems.
