Module Description:This subject provides a mathematical analysis of Analogue Communication Systems. In particular, Fourier Series and Fourier Transforms are introduced and used to analyse a selection of communications systems. Information Theory is reviewed and developed, and the Lempel Ziv is introduced. An integrated Project contributes towards the final mark of this subject.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Derive, explain and apply equations relating to the Fourier series expansion and Fourier transform, and sketch and interpret waveforms in the time and frequency domains
LO2 Describe and analyse the transmission of analogue signals through linear systems
LO3 Explain and analyse CW communications systems
LO4 Derive and apply various results relating to information theory.
LO5 Use the spectrum analyser and Matlab as tools for analysing basic signals and systems and write a report to describe and analyse the activity (one report must adhere to the Department of Electronics’ guidelines for a detailed formal report)
LO6 Define a problem, analyse , design, implement and evaluate a solution as part of a project, while considering all ethical implications.
LO7 Communicate effectively as part of a team, as well as formally presenting their findings verbally and in written documents.
