The design and implementation of the physical layer, data link layer, and network layer protocols are explained. Also, client/server programming using UNIX and windows sockets is studied. Moreover, the architecture of SDR based terminal is investigated. Finally, this course involves protocol design, verification, and optimization.
Fundamental principles and mathematical bases underlying digital communication systems are introduced. Topics include MAP detection theory, optimum receivers, information theory, coding theory, and diversity techniques.
This course, as an advanced course of EE 421, aims at providing a strong foundation for research in the are of wireless communications. The course will address (1) wireless channel models from a system theoretic viewpoint, (2) modulation and demodulation in wireless channels, (3) coding techniques for wireless channels, (4) various equalization techniques for ISI channels, (5) multicarrier transmission techniques including OFDM, (6) spread spectrum technique (DS, FH), and (7) MIMO communications with a focus on single-user MIMO.
