This course provides attendees with a solid and intuitive understanding of the latest digital communication technologies for both wireless and wireline systems. The course covers both the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques and the physical layer modulation schemes which are facilitating the vast improvements in spectral efficiency being implemented in 3rd and 4th generation wireless systems. Current and future wireless standards shall be used as case studies to illustrate these techniques.
The course will include:
- DSP theory review
- Single carrier modulation
- Pulse shaping and matched filtering
- Intersymbol interference
- Propagation channels
- Spread spectrum techniques
- Multi-antenna techniques
The course is suitable for all engineering, marketing and technical management staff. The course delivers a sound grounding in digital communications theory and practice. Previous attendees to our courses have come from a wide range of industries and backgrounds such as professional audio and acoustics, digital communications, ASIC and analog electronics, and even mechanical engineering. This diversity also leads to a learning environment which helps strengthen each attendee’s understanding of the fundamentals through interaction and cross-fertilization of ideas and applications.
To educate participants in the theory and application of the latest digital communication schemes and the associated DSP techniques.
On successful completion of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the fundamental principles of digital communications
- Understand how DSP is enabling advanced communication techniques
- Design single and multi-carrier modulators and demodulators
- Understand how propagation channels affect signals
- Use equalisers to compensate for channel effects
- Understand the advantages and disadvantages of different modulation schemes
- Have an awareness of how synchronisation works
- Appreciate how multi-antenna techniques can improve spectral efficiency
Advanced digital communications and the associated DSP techniques are often seen as an esoteric and very mathematical subject. In this course, the necessary mathematical theory is presented on a “need to know basis” and in an intuitive style using both simulations and DSP demonstrations. This presentation style and ethos has been presented with considerable success to many companies, both small and large, in both Europe and the USA.
The course format is: 50% Lectures | 40% DSP software hands-on simulation | 10% Tutorial Discussion
Laboratory Sessions: Professional design software will be used for the laboratory sessions. This advanced software provides comprehensive state of the art communications and DSP simulation functionality.
Course Materials: All attendees will receive electronic and printed versions of the teaching materials. A DVD containing all the simulation models used during the course will also be distributed. The notes provided form a superset of the materials presented on the course and will allow further in depth study after the course.
This course has been carefully designed to present the complex mathematical theory often associated with DSP in an intuitive and straightforward style to a wide audience of scientists, engineers, project managers and even marketing staff. The following prior experience is also essential: Electrical engineering principles and Bachelor level mathematics.
