This four-day course provides digital radio designers with an abundance of practical techniques and insights for optimal processing of modern communications signals. Algorithms for detection, tracking, estimation and error correction of digitally modulated data are illustrated by detailed simulations, most of which can be directly implemented in hardware.
This presentation is very comprehensive: the theoretical basis of digital radio topics such as digital modulation, RF propagation impairments, signal equalization, coding theory and multiple access techniques is followed by simulations and practical design guidance.
In addition to the various digital modem topics, we study the important implications of correct analog and mixed signal design. This includes analysis of the latest ADCs, DACs and RF integrated circuits used in state of the art digital radio. Modern high-performance interface techniques, such as JESD204, are also discussed.
Most topics include carefully described design examples, alternative approaches, performance analysis, and references to published research results. Extensive guidance is provided to help you get started on design, simulation and implementation efforts. In addition to the class slides and extensive bibliography, all DSP code and models are provided on the class CD.
Dr. John M Reyland has 25 years of experience in digital communications design for both commercial and military applications. Dr. Reyland holds the degree of Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Iowa. He has presented numerous seminars on digital communications in both academic and industrial settings.
