This course covers fundamental concepts of communication systems, which are essential for the understanding of advanced courses in digital/ wireless communication systems. Beginning with various basic tools such as Fourier Series/ Transform, the course will also cover several important modulation techniques such as Amplitude Modulation, Frequency Modulation, Phase Modulation etc. Sampling process and Quatization, including Nyquist criterion and reconstruction of the original signal from the sampled signal will be dealt with in the later parts of the course.




Basic tools for communication, Fourier Series/Transform, Properties, Autocorrelation, Energy Spectral Density, Parsevals Relation


Amplitude Modulation (AM), Spectrum of AM, Envelope Detection, Power Efficiency, Modulation Index


Double Sideband Suppressed Carrier (DSB-SC) Modulation, Quadrature Carrier Multiplexing (QCM), Demodulation, Costas Receiver


Single Sideband Modulation (SSB), Hilbert Transform, Complex Pre-envelope/ Envelope, Demodulation of SSB, Vestigial Sideband Modulation (VSB)


Angle Modulation, Frequency Modulation (FM), Phase Modulation (PM), Modulation Index, Instantaneous Frequency


Spectrum of FM Signals, Carsons Rule for FM Bandwidth, Narrowband FM Generation, Wideband FM Generation via Indirect Method, FM Demodulation


Introduction to Sampling, Spectrum of Sampled Signal, Aliasing, Nyquist Criterion, Signal Reconstruction from Sampled Signal, Pulse Amplitude Modulation
