The course covers an introduction to the analysis of signals, amplitude (SSB, DSB, QAM) and angle (FM, PM) modulations as well as sampling and pulse code modulation (PCM) techniques. Also covered are the principles of digital data communications, probability theory, random processes, and performance of analog and digital systems in the presence of noise. The course includes an introduction to information theory and error correction techniques.
