Course outline:
This course aims to develop and advanced understanding of signals and systems. Topics include: time domain and fourier domain analysis of linear systems. Power spectral density. Propagation of signals through linear systems. Filter concepts. Noise in linear systems. Calculation of signal to noise ratio. Decibel calculations. Amplitude modulation and demodulation. Frequency division multiplexing. Heterodyning (shifting in frequency). Angle Modulation Applications: telecommunications transmitters and receivers; instrumentation. Some examples of non-linear systems will also be discussed; for example the generation of harmonics at the output of a non-linear time-invariant system.
