Course Details:

Signal processing in continuous, discrete, and digital domains play important role in modern communication systems. A good understanding of theory and design issues of signal processing blocks is critical for optimizing systems and circuits. In this course, we cover theory and application of sampled data systems, synchronization, and array processing.

- Sampling theory
o Time/Frequency/Spatial sampling
o Interpolation and decimation techniques, sub-harmonic sampling
o Advance topics in sampling theory (Random sampling, Importance sampling,)
- Application in Spectrum sharing (Cognitive radio)
- Basics of Data conversion
o Sigma-Delta modulation and demodulation
o Design issues sigma delta data converters
- Synchronization in Communication systems
o Phased-lock loops theory and design
o Carrier and phase recovery
o Clock/Data Recovery
- Adaptive equalizers
o Estimation theroy
- Array/vector processing, beamforming
o Link budget analysis and design of multi antenna systems
- Wavelet theory (time permitting)
- Project presentations
