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, linecoding, signal to noise ratios, performance comparison of various communication systems. This will include theory and handson application using oscillators, amplification, modulators, filters, and antennas.
