Course Description: Review of signal and system analysis, sampling theorem and Nyquist's criteria for pulse shaping, signal distortion over a channel, study of digital and analog communication systems, line-coding, signal to noise ratios, performance comparison of various communication systems. This will include theory and hands-on application using oscillators, amplification, modulators, filters, and antennas.
