Digital Communications: From Beginner to Expert


Digital Communications: From Beginner to Expert, A Course Given in Most Universities to Teach Digital Communication Systems to Electrical & Computer Engineering Students.

The course gives a comprehensive and detailed view of the general structure of digital communication systems including transmitter and receiver designs as well as the different types of wireless channels that may be encountered in communication systems. In particular, it covers topics like real and complex random vectors, signal space representations, and advanced digital modulation/demodulation techniques such as ASK, PSK, FSK, BPSK, M-ASK, M-PSK, M-FSK, QPSK, QAM, OFDM, OFDM-IM, OFDM-SNM, OFDM-SPM, and MIMO-SM. In addition, the course will cover digital data transmission over noisy and fading channels, as well as the design of ideal transceivers for recovering the received data. Moreover, the calculation of key performance metrics in digital communication systems such as bit error probability, data rate, and throughput will also be explained and discussed in this course.

More specifically, the covered topics in the course are listed as follows:

  • Lesson  1: Introduction to the basic processing blocks in digital transceivers systems (source coding, channel coding, modulation, pulse selection, synchronization, detection, demodulation, decoding, equalization).
  • Lesson 2 – More details about basic processing blocks + Quantization and Analog to digital conversion (ADC).
  • Lesson 3 – Quantization Noise and its probability distribution function (PDF) in pulse code modulation (PCM).
  • Lesson 4 – Nonuniform Quantization + Advantages of PCM + Line codes & D-encoding.
  • Lesson 5 – Time Division Multiplexing (TDM).
  • Lesson 6 – Digital Multiplexers and their different types.
  • Lesson 7 – Delta modulation: Concept, Advantages, Disadvantages, and Solutions.
  • Lesson 8 – Linear Prediction Filters (LPC).
  • Lesson 9 – Base-band Pulse Transmission: Matched Filters.
  • Lesson 10 – Probability of Error over AWGN Channel.
  • Lesson 11 – Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI) and Raised Cosine Pulse Shaping Filter.
  • Lesson 12 – Correlative level (duo binary) coding for doubling channel capacity.
  • Lesson 13 – Addressing the drawbacks of Correlative level (duo binary) Coding.
  • Lesson 14 – Passband Data Transmission and Basic Concepts of Digital Modulation.
  • Lesson 15 – New types of carriers & features for digital modulation (IM, NM, SM).
  • Lesson 16 – Binary phase-shift keying (BPSK).
  • Lesson 17 – Quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK).
  • Lesson 18 – Offset and Shifted Quadrature Phase-Shift Keying (OQPSK).
  • Lesson 19 – M-array phase-shift keying (MPSK) & M-array quadrature amplitude (MQAM).
  • Lesson 20 – Non-coherent modulation: Transmission & detection of non-coherent BFSK.
  • Lesson 21 – Non-coherent differential binary phase-shift keying (DBPSK) & detection.
  • Spatial Modulation and Index Modulation in MIMO Systems
  • Subcarrier Power Modulation in OFDM Systems

So, the course basically covers the general structure of Digital Communication systems, real and complex random vectors, signal space representations, digital modulation/demodulation techniques, digital data transmission over noisy channels and ideal receiver design, the bit error probability in digital data communication, techniques, and basic limits of data communication, entropy, channel capacity, and coding methods.
