Wireless receivers: algorithms and architectures

EE-442

Lecturer(s) :

Burg Andreas Peter

Language:

English

Summary

The students will learn about the basic principles of wireless communication systems, including transmission and modulation schemes as well as the basic components and algorithms of a wireless receiver. They develop an understanding for the wireless channel and the performance and limitations.

Content

Fundamentals

Modulation, baseband and passband signals, vector-space representation, matched filtering, maximum-likelihood estimation, performance metrics

Synchronized receiver

Carrier frequency and sampling frequency offset, time- and frequency synchronization, interpolation, equalization, diversity receiver

The wireless channel

Basic AWGN channel, signal propagation and attenuation, fading channels, multipath propagation, Doppler shift

Wideband modulation

Multicarrier communication, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), training based channel estimation and equalization for OFDM, synchronization, tracking, some OFDM based communication standards

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

Telecommunication systems

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Teaching methods
