Admission information


After successful completion of the module the student knows about wave propagation in wireless communications and the resulting peculiarities of the wireless channel. He/she further knows how to compute the capacity of certain wireless channels and is able to adapt transmitter and receiver to combat these effects. He/she finally gets well-aquainted with multiple antenna systems and the corresponding approaches to maximize the throughput as well as coded modulation concepts for wireless communications.


Wireless channels (models, information rates); Inter-symbol interference and equalization (decision-feedback equalization (DFE), Tomlinson-Harashima precoding), Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM); Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) systems; coded modulation schemes for fading channels
