- These labs are intended to accompany and enhance an introductory course in communication systems at the junior or senior level (year 3 or 4) in an electrical or computer engineering program.
- After completing this course, students will be capable of building a variety of analog and digital communications systems comprising of a complete transmitter and receiver usng LabVIEW Communications and NI USRP software defined radios.
- With the knowledge built up through this course students will be able to identy common modulation schemes, diagnose impairments and use simple tools such as the Eye Diagram and Bit Error Rate to determine the quality of a communication system.
