School of engineering in Physics, Applied Physics, Electronics & Materials
The main objective is to give the basic principle of digital transmission, consisting in sending digital information into physical (analog) channel, ans see current basic techniques. I uses Information Theory results (C. Shannon) to give and interpret achievable performance and position the performance of basic modulations techniques (especially in terms of spectral efficiency and energy efficiency trade-offs). Other objective is to briefly present gives also a brief introduction of present radio-frequency transmission systems (e.g. : Mobile communication).Contact Laurent ROS
1. Base-band digital transmission
3. Radio transmission systems :
General information about transmission systems (microwave links, satellite links, and radio-mobile communications, introduction to advances transmissions techniques such as CDMA (used in UMTS, ...) and OFDM (used in DVB, TNT, ...).
Part 1 will be treated in depth, while Parts 2 and 3 will be seen only briefly as extensions.
The course will be illustrated by classic Classworks as well as by Labworks sessions. The latter will consist of a guided mini-project consisting of developing a digital communication simulation chain and interpreting the results directly linked to the course. This will will result in the redaction of a report which will be noted (1/3 of the overall mark).
1 Written exam (2 h) (E).
