ECET 4431 Wireless Communications Systems
Prerequisite: ECET 3410
This course investigates point-to-point radio frequency (rf) communications systems. The underlying principles, requirements, and characteristics of electromagnetic propagation and antennas are studied. Existing systems and recent advances in the area of wireless communications will be covered, including terrestrial and satellite applications. Topics covered include FDMA, TDMA, and CDMA based design. The application of wireless design principles to radar will also be discussed. Laboratory experiences and computer simulations supplement the classroom discussions.
