- This course is designed to accompany an intermediate or advanced class on wireless communications.
- Given LabVIEW Communications and NI USRP software defined radios, students will be able to design communication algorithms that can combat the real world challenges faced wireless channels including carrier frequency offset (CFO) and synchronisation.
- Students will be able to construct a robust OFDM downlink channel including transmitter and receiver design. This will stand them in perfect place to further explore wireless standards such as LTE and IEE 802.11 that make heavy use of OFDM in their physical layer (PHY).
|Prerequisite Skills||Background in digital communication is helpful, but not required|
