Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

Lectures and exercise sessions will make students able to

1) Knowledge and understanding. Understand the general principles of data transmission in digital communication systems, analyze and understand the requirements associated to a communication system in terms of signal bandwidth, filtering, modulation, coding.

2) Applying knowledge and understanding. Identify and define at the block-diagram level a proper filtering, modulation and coding scheme for the most common channel models, compute the performance of transmission systems in terms of error probability for the most common channel models.

3) Making judgements. Judge if a given filtering, modulation and coding scheme is appropriate for a practical radio or optical communication system. Recognize the design space and the degrees of freedom that can be exploited to reach given objectives in terms of performance of filtering, modulation and coding, with specific application to practical radio and optical communication systems.

4) Communication. Communicate to other engineers with presentations and documents about filtering, modulation and coding schemes using the appropriate mathematical tools as Fourier analysis, probability theory, calculus and matrix algebra. Communicate to non-specialists the requirements, the constraints and the features of communication systems using graphical representation (block diagrams) and writings.

Modalità di valutazione

The exam can be taken in any one of the July, September, February sessions. The exam consists in a written part based on a question about the theory, in an oral part based on the theory and on the written exam. The oral part can include an optional (up to the student) presentation of the laboratory activities.

The student will be asked to answer questions regarding the theory, to draw block diagrams of digital communication systems and to explain them by writings and equations, to compute system performance in terms of error probability and/or mean square error, to explain and comment on the code encoded during the laboratory activity (optional).
