Advanced wireless receivers

EE-543

Lecturer(s) :

Burg Andreas Peter

Language:

English

Summary

Students extend their knowledge on wireless communication systems to spread-spectrum communication and to multi-antenna systems. They also learn about the basic information theoretic concepts, about channel coding, and bit-interleaved coded modulation.

Content

Spread-Spectrum-Modulation:
Basic concept, direct sequence spread spectrum, CDMA

Channel coding:
Principles and basic idea of channel coding, block codes, convolutional codes, Viterbi decoder

Information theory:
Basic concepts, channel capacity, mutual information

Multi-antennas systems / MIMO:
Basic idea of spatial multiplexing, MIMO capacity, MIMO receivers (maximum-likelihood, linear, SIC, VBLAST)

Final PROJECT:
Implement and simulate the IS-95 cellular downlink and extend the standard to MIMO
