Cursusdoelen
Understanding physical layer design of wireless communication systems is essential for anyone interested in telecommunications and wireless engineering. This course extends the knowledge of the basic elements of a wireless communication link to a comprehensive functional view of a wireless communication system, and provides a skillset required for practical system design and analysis.

At the end of this course, the student will be able to:
  • name, explain and compare main concepts and design approaches behind key building blocks constituting a wireless communication link such as channel coders/decoders, modulators/demodulators, multiplexers/demultiplexers;
  • understand advanced transceiver designs including multiple access schemes, spread spectrum, and OFDM systems;
  • use Matlab to implement and study key functions of a wireless communication link;
  • apply tools from estimation and information theory to evaluate link performance over AWGN, flat-fading and dispersive channels;
  • analyse physical-layer design of modern wireless communication systems (GSM, 5G, LTE, WLAN, Bluetooth, etc.);
  • mathematically reason a choice of physical layer system parameters provided a specific application scenario (desired data rate, bandwidth, distance, propagation channel, etc.);
  • based on the choice of system parameters, devise a communication link and numerically evaluate its performance using Simulink.
Inhoud
WiCoS provides an extensive overview of the fundamental principles underlying physical layer design of wireless communication systems.

The course is organized in two parts. In the first part, we review constituent physical layer components of a wireless communication link including main
  • modulation/demodulation types;
  • channel coding/decoding methods;
  • diversity schemes.
Furthermore, we introduce basics of estimation and information theory as applied to wireless communication systems, e.g., for receiver synchronization, BER performance and channel capacity analysis. 

In the second part of the course, we focus on advanced transceiver schemes including
  • multiple access schemes;
  • spread spectrum systems;
  • OFDM systems.
The consideration of advanced transceiver schemes is accompanied by practical examples of real-life system designs (cellular communications, WLAN, Bluetooth, etc.).

Assessment
  • Two-part written exam: both test grades must be at least 5.5.
  • Lab reports: minimum grade 5.5
Voorkennis
Knowledge of Electrical Engineering at Bachelor level is required. Particularly, the prerequisites are basics of probability theory, communications, and signal processing. Familiarity/usage experience with Matlab is also required.
Expected knowledge level corresponds to UT EE Module 8 – Signal Processing and Communications (202001153), or equivalent.
Prior participation in the MSc course Mobile Radio Communications (191211030) is strongly advised but not required.
