19 labs are currently available. Check back soon for more.
After completing the labs in this manual, students will have the ability to complete the following actions:
- Discuss the use of amplitude, frequency, and phase in transmitting information in a signal.
- Describe how the time and frequency domain expressions of a signal are related, and discuss how and why signals are shifted in frequency.
- Describe the differences between continuous signals and discrete time (sampled) signals.
- Explain the relationship between analog and digital signals in a communications context, as well as describe the use of Fourier analysis.
- Describe the concept of the transmission model of a communications system.
- Construct various communications systems from their fundamental blocks.
- Improvise solutions to be able to process signals using the available blocks.
- Create new signals and systems using LabVIEW code, both as a generator and receiver of signals.
