Aim of course

This course aims to provide some practical experience in the field of mobile radio and to help understand the robust philosophy of communications and their applicability for future services.

Subject of course

In this course you will perform measurements of radio channel, antenna gain and free space losses. Additionally you will gain some insight on modulation formats and on practical problems of synchronization and demodulation, with the help of software defined radio. Finally, based on computer simulations you will learn the basics of spread-spectrum technology with the focus on following topics:

  1. Robust Communications 
  2. Spread-Spectrum signals
  3. Spread-Spectrum systems
  4. Performance in AWGN
  5. Performance in CW-interference
  6. RAKE-receiver
  7. Performance in multipath and fading channels
  8. CDMA-systems
  9. Performance of CDMA-networks
  10. Synchronization of spread-spectrum systems

Additional information
