EGB342 Telecommunications and Signal Processing

This a foundational unit addressing core concepts, characteristics and performance requirements in analog and digital communication systems. It introduces basic building blocks of analog and digital modulation techniques for single and multi-user communications. Use time and frequency domain signal analysis, apply information theory to compress digital data, choose appropriate modulation techniques to transmit digital and analog signals and the ability to analyse the performance in noisy channels are important skills for electrical engineering graduates.  This is an introductory unit and the knowledge and skills developed in this unit are relevant to communication and signals stream in the electrical engineering major. EGH443 Advanced Telecommunications, EGH444 Digital Systems and Image processing, and EGH442 RF Techniques and Applications units build on this unit by extending analytical understanding of basic building blocks for design and analysis of more complex signals and systems
