Admission information


At the end of this course, the student knows how to analyze and design digital communication systems for reliable data transmission at high data rates and understands the key principles that are used in current and future standards.


This course is all about how to use channel coding for reliable data transmission at high rates over discrete-time continuous-valued channels. Covered topics: * The AWGN Channel Capacity, achievable rates. * Digital Modulation Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM), Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK), Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM), Amplitude Phase Shift Keying (APSK). * Probabilistic Shaping Capacity-achieving distributions, optimization over input distributions, distribution matching. * Coding Bit-metric decoding, Gray labeling, bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM). * Receiver quantization * Channel measurements Capacity estimation, coded modulation system design.


Recommendations: - Basics of digital communications - Basics of channel coding It is recommended to take one the following modules additionally: - Information Theory, Channel Coding, Channel Codes for Iterative Decoding
