ENGS 351 - Signal Analysis and Communications

Course Description
This course will introduce students to the basics of signal modulation and radio frequency analysis and design. The approach is tailored to a careful development of the mathematical principles upon which such systems are based. A wide variety of current communication systems will be presented. The emphasis in this course is the design and analysis of Amplitude Modulation (AM), Frequency (angle) Modulation (FM), and Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), and understanding the differences between these types of modulations. The students will also be introduced to band-pass filters that are extensively used in signal demodulation.
